Nice restaurant, good service. The food is good, but not amazing. Reservation is not needed, since the restaurant is quite big.

Nice family friendly place, good food, well served and very nice staff! The portions are very good and the flavour is traditional as if it was home made. The portuguese tradition is well represented.
