This is very much a Portuguse style restaurant complete with the tiled walls and the TV in the corner. The food is very good with a fairly extensive menu. I generally go for the fish options; bica (sea bream) is always good, it has four or five bacalhau (cod) dishes, decent sized camarao (prawns) and filets of capitaine. These are... More

A nice place, but not up to expectations. It could be we were not lucky but our food was nothing to remember. Wine is not really the best if you don't go to the expensive ones.

For western standards, the restaurant's atmosphere is just okay. In Bissau, I believe this to be one of the best restaurants in town. What really matters, the taste, is very good, every time.

The food is very good, but air con not so strong and the staff are just so unbelievably slow. It spoils the impression completely.

The service here is exceptional for Guinea-Bissau. The prices are a little high, but worth it for a nice sit down dinner. Usually get the Beef Medallions and Tres Leches dessert. Yum! Portugeuse food and service, meaning if you touch the bread and olives placed on the table before you order they add this to the bill. Just tell them... More

This restaurant offers good food in a Portuguese stylish cuisine. A little bit expensive for Guinea Bissau standard but as many other restaurant it charges almost the same. I strongly recommend it.

Ive eaten here over 50 times in the last few years and can continue to say that you're sure to get a tasty meal here. The friendly staff will seem to be preoccupied, but in true Bissau Guinean friendly fashion, they are waiting for you to ask them for something. Ever helpful. The Portions are excellent and filling. Food may... More
