I have no idea what the previous people are talking about at all. Our waiter Andre was awesome. He was very attentive, made great food suggestions, and was fun. The wife had the octopus, and I have the steak. The portions were big, and the...More

What a shame, this restaurant is in a lovely location right by the river but the food is expensive and very bland. Waste of your money. Stay away.

Armosphere was great, looked promising. Food was not that good. Sardines were ok, porc stew was a couple of days old or at least tasted like this. The good thing is that the staff took our complaints serious. So they were really involved.

Waited half an hour to get a drink . Ordered chicken and got fish. The miserable waiter was nice in the end they were understaffed. Nice on the waterfront and the street entertainment was brilliant.

Very good! Service was good but a little chaotic, because they were super busy. Food was good but not the best in the strip. Good portions.

Terrible service, we had the ‘meat’ in wine and garlic- could not tell what meat it was! Some pieces were quite tender but others were awful. Vegetables never arrived until ten minutes later and then we had to wait ages for the bill. The only...More

No need. Just pop in. During busy times like lunch and dinner this place is easily fully booked. I strongly suggest to come in a bit early. All the very best! 😊
