We booked in advance and got an amazing table upstairs by the window. The panoramic views and the general atmosphere were great as well. Our steaks were cooked perfectly in tasty sauces and the portion sizes were generous too.

We had lunch here before we visited the castle. We had the tapas - Eco potatoes, codfish cakes and grilled chorizo. They were delicious! The restaurant also offers a nice view of the city. Service staff were friendly and helpful.

The location for dinner is fantastic. Great view and very friendly staff. My wife had the sea bass and really enjoyed it. I had the Portuguese steak which was as tough as shoe leather. Be safe and stick to the seafood.More

Saturday night dinner. We did not feel welcome. The waiter was just concerned about getting our order and getting our payment once done. The place was busy and service was a bit slow. We arrived at around 8:40 and queued for perhaps 15 minutes then...More

Initially felt like a tourist trap when we stepped in but service was nice and the drinks were much better than expected. Only tried the eco potatoes & cod cakes, and there were just fine. Overall a pleasant surprise with a nice view!More
