We love this restaurant, great food and wine in a lovely restaurant. The staff are welcoming and can't do enough for you our waiter was excellent and tried to communicate with us in English when he could, sadly I did not get his name but first class service.

The service done by Mr. Lopes is perfect, but the food came cold and the cost/benefit compared to other places at Portugal is low.

We decided to eat at this restaurant for my birthday dinner, waited to be seated and the gardener eventually had to tell us to take a seat, straight away we noticed that there was poo on our plate and the waiters response was " Well, you are outside" another group of 4 oblivious locals arrived and were greeted with smiles...

Food was terrible, cold and tasted like yesterdays leftovers heated up. and over priced. Even the olives are bad. Left hungry and broke. After i told the staff my dislike and clearly 90% of food on the table they dis not hesitate to charge 30 euros. I guess it was for the drinks, which they got wrong the first time... More

My mates had a more trad local food and where happy with it. Is a bit over priced for the food quality, service is overall a good effort with no... More

Very bad. Don't eat here. The food is worst than the Gordon Ramsey programs that he goes to those horrible restaurants...

Really good selection, and covering the main regional and seasonal items you would expect. Huge restaurant, with typical decor and setting. Our waitress wasn't the fastest, nor the sharpest tool in the shed - we had to repeat our son's very plain order several times to ensure she got it, but when the food came, it was well worth it.

This was fantastic. The food was amazing and there is no doubt it is in the more expensive range the value and emphasis on local cuisine and wines more than justify the price they make you aware of the best of local products and the relative cheapness of good products. Even a budget bound backpacker splurge .E52.40 total. Two main... More
