Wonderful, fresh food as always! Have visited here several times now and have never been disappointed. Friendly greeting as usual, couldn't fault it at all. The fish cataplana is a particular highlight. Can't wait to go back in a few months.

Visit this restaurant every holiday. Usually go for dinner but tried lunch this week. A very extensive set lunch menu with local wine. The owner is always very attentive and the food is excellent.
