Great mussels for starters, great steak for mains and great caramel dessert, extremely cosy interior and the friendliest staff. Mother and son run this restaurant and it is well worth many visits even during a short stay :)

This litte, hidden gem has a very peculiar interior what you will like (like me) or hate. Anyway, if you want to have a great steak...this is the place. Normally fish is better in most places but here I had the fillet mignon and it was one of the best in a long time.

It's slightly out of the the centre of town (4 Euro taxi!) , it's little, it's quirky but I have to say it serves some of the best Portuguese food you will ever have. The best steak I have ever tasted. A family run business business we got our hotel to book a table (It's small an popular) an we... More

quirky environment, really friendly staff, really wonderful steak and shrimps; it's a bit off the beaten track but a short, five euro taxi ride from the centre and well worth it. Great value too.

Having read the reviews online we decided to try this restaurant. We took a taxi as it is out of the main centre but only 5 minutes out - in a residential area so the location was unusual! It is run by a son and mother (who is the chef) and it is a very small space but very quirky.... More

Cute because it is one of very vew eating places in the region that has been purposefully decorated, even though it has lost a lot of its artefacts in the last few years, due no doubt to meddling health and safety officials. Cosy because there is atmosphere from A to Zee. Crowded because of its size, back to back seating... More
