A wide range of menu options from the cheap thru to very expensive meat dishes. The average fare is well priced for the quality you get. Attentive staff. House wine is good for the price. They have a smoking and non-smoking section inside, and an...More

Go here! Proper Portuguese tapas and waiters with a lovely feel and outstanding value. The house Crianza was excellent for Euro 15! And the food very tasty.
