The servicd was great. The staff knew the menu well and were good at explaining the Portuguese wine varietals. The food was amazing. The wine suggested was perfect with seafood. Great value. The tiger prawns, mussels, octopus and sea breem were all excellent.

This is a very small restaurant , you should have reserved a table Already. Good Luck. Also, they reserve the table for only 15 mins. Be there early .
