The food was good here. Try their pizzas or the Garlic and cheese sausage. Olives in oil, garlic and parsley were exceptional.

The staff, ambiance and food are well worth the visit. Ultra busy at lunch, the waiter ushered us upstairs where we had excellent vegetable soup, bacalhau a bras, wine and doce de casa for under 20 euros for two. Well located, clean and wonderful staff.

We had toasts and coffee with milk and it was rather expensive. It might be better for lunch and dinner.

This is like the tenth time we've been here, and it's consistently good. Professional staff, good menu, and good beer. The Caldo Verde, garlic prawns and dessert along with wine came to about 16 Euros. I'd go back in a minute!

We tried this spot early in the morning as we had a train to catch to Faro. This place was conveniently located by the hotel we were staying. We ordered coffee with milk and Queijadinha (a milk based pastry). Both the coffee and the pastry...More
