Two visits over 3 weeks. My first impression was not favourable when the couvert was brought to the table; the butter packet had been used already!

Frozen calamari, yum! Shameful place made for tourists with McDonald's type palates. Around the corner had the best dinner experience. Within seven cities of Portugal, this was the worst
