Hidden away on a side street, this restaurant serves excellent food and has fantastic staff. The prawn and clam cataplana was very good indeed, and the portion sizes are generous. Good house wine at €7/litre too!

We found the restaurant by chance. I was looking for a cataplana and was pleased with the result. We chose the mixed cataplana with prawns,clams and sea bass. The presentation was excellent, the food delicious, the waitress friendly and helpful. We loved it.

Don't go here. This restaurant is a tourist trap. The cataplana tasted like something a 10 year old could make, frozen shrimps, closed clams and canned tomatoes does NOT make a good cataplana. We should have suspected something as the menu was in Italian and...More

Lovely Portuguese restaurant that specialises in cataplana dishes. We shared the mixed cataplana ( clams, prawns and seabass ) which was excellent. Nice wine list which actually gives proper descriptions. Waitress was very efficient and friendly. Restaurant feels quite old fashioned but in a good...More
