With some amazing view to the sea and the beach, a very nice lunch with some very good food. From the shrimp with honey to the local deserts, everything was good.

Good but not exceptional! The prices are a bit high according to the quality! Noisy and the service is too slow!

Great place but better location! Awesome place to eat and we enjoyed it. Service was a bit standoffish until they started talking to our portugees friends but really gave us a good service. Menu is good and personally i really enjoyed the salmon kebab. Some...More
