We had a selection of sardines for starter and the a traditional dish of fish and bananas and a filet mignon... WOW!!! Food was so amazing!!! Would happily come back again. The ambience was perfect for the restaurant and make the experience calm and relaxing.

This was a lucky break; as you wander through the restaurant quarter, each and every one has a doorman trying to lure you in, and I am not sure why we relented here, but we did. The service team was superb; from the doorman (certainly much more authentic than most), to the serving team of Felipe and Nicole, and Magda... More

Delicious fish for supper (cant remember the name but we saw them in the market- maybe scabbard??) Good service and good selection of fresh veggies too. And a complementary banana liqueur!

Staff more interested in getting new punters in the restaurant than serving clients on the premises. The service was non existent and rushed. Tried to get ketchup with meal and gave up after being ignored on 2 occasions by staff. Actually the food was good , just a pity they cannot provide the same level of service as Mozart Restaurant....

We enjoyed a very enjoyable meal here. My husband hasdtheCataplana which was very tasty with a good mix of fish. I had a very tasty steak served with a Mushroom sauce. Staff were welcoming.

The sandwich had steak, ham, cheese, egg, salad etc but was tasteless. We could not believe how bland it was with all the ingredients, they must of been of a... More

a rather charming young waitress hooked us into the restaurant as we were walking outside. However , once inside we were passed over to a charmless waiter who left us alone for ages. The service was pretty slow and the choice of fish seemed to be either very expensive , but presumably fresh or much cheaper (i'm guessing frozen-by the... More
