The best portuguese meal we had in our entire holiday in Portugal. Book ahead. Had garlic prawns for appetizer. Iberian black pork cheeks cooked in a very tasty gravy, lightly herbed with coriander. Wonderful portuguese dessert - honey and almond based. Good wine selection.

Fabulous restaurant. Food is amazing and the wine list is extensive. Very reasonably priced. Portions are quite large so I would recommend sharing. The roasted lamb is the best I have ever tasted. Ambiance is great and the staff were just as wonderful.

We had high expectations regarding this restaurant as it had been highly recommended by friends. After our dinner there, we find that the recommendation was undeserved. Make no mistake, the restaurant is ok, but far, very far, from being exceptional, which was what we were...More

The quality of the food and the service is upper class but the price is low to mid range. Locally inspired food but with a special touch. Highly recommended
