The location is good, it has parking places, the rooms are very well decorated and it has place for big groups,... More

Has all the trappings of a mid-high level restaurant with the table settings and smart waiters but the food wasn't that good and we left feeling stung. I tried to order the Gourmet salad with grilled chicken but they had no chicken (?!) so I accepted cheese instead but was still charged 11€. My husband was disappointed with his large... More

Went to this restaurant after having read the reviews and was not dissapointed. Upon entry you are greeted with with plateful of seafood which in itself consist of a meal and it is free while waiting for your entry and main courses. The decor is amazing and the waiters are so professional. The seafood is to die for and although... More

Lovely restaurant. Good food excellent fish, but also very tasty meat options. Staff had to be reminded that there is an english card and were obviously not used to many non-portugese speaking visitors. On the other hand, that was also part of the charm of it.
