The location it's easy to find, the restaurant it's 1970 a bit quaint . Service it's so good! I had some amazing squid and also some Scabbard fish. Very typical homemade food and it's very healthy simple and delicious

We turned up just as service was finishing and they looked a bit perturbed to see us sitting down (9 of us), having sat down outside the waiters were very friendly and accommodating. I had the steak, fried egg and fries, very good and the...More

We were recommended to eat here by our hotel (Hotel Jardim) and while initially, you might be skeptical on this kind of recommendation we bit the bullet and ate there. We loved it and really enjoyed our meal. It felt like you were in someone's...More

If you want to take a brake for a quick meal with low prices try this restaurant. Once again: forget the salt cod.

Typical touristy place, mediocre food, hygiene deficient, wish I hadn't gone there. Atmosphere uninteresting, tables are packed together on the patio, and busy street with lots of cars in front. Better off going to a place near the center
