Restaurant was not very busy, service was friendly, but also pretty formal / old fashioned. Very good, traditional portuguese food, plus some pasta with italian influence. Not a posh and fancy place, but a great choice for high quality food.

Very nice family reataurant. Had a marvellous Châteabriand and very good service. Had a great vine recommendation, so the overall conclusion is a memorable evening.

Small, quite, well hidden family restaurant, well worth the effort to find and visit. Uncomplicated quality dishes expertly prepared. Varied menu covers most budgets, personal favourites bring Rack of Lamb and Chateaubriand. House wines reasonably priced and highly drinkable. Numerous visits - this restaurant never...More

Small and unpretentious, but the food and service really were perfect. A lot less money than some others we have tried, so on that basis it could be the best and should be the fist to recommend if you like fine food.
