The food is typical Portuguese and very plentiful and tasty. The setting is very warm and cozy. The wait staff was attentive and efficient. The only complaint is the wines weren't the best.

On first impressions this restaurant promises a lot being located in the former kitchen of the adjacent place. The décor and large stone serving table are impressive – but there are few good things to say after that. The hors d’oeuvres was a buffet –...More
