Food quality from terrible to poor. Restless, forgetful waiters, dirty glasses, toilets not working properly. Decent house red. Very disappointing, especially as it was recommended in my guide book!

Have eaten out in Portugal for years in many different towns and cities and this is the worst restaurant I have experienced. The best bit is the comedy value of watching the wrong orders going to each table. Inedible starters, dry chicken, uncooked cold chips,...More
