Some people have an extra special knack with preparing and presenting food. It doesn't come with training. It comes from an innate knowing...from the heart. Such is the case for owner of this restaurant, affectionately known to his friends and guests as Chef Vitor.

We visit Santa Cruz every year to see family and rarely venture out to new places as we just enjoy spending time with family. We decided to look for somewhere local but new to eat and we drove past this little restaurant on the way home from Torres Vedres this afternoon. I looked on trip advisor and the few reviews...
