Superb dining experience doesn't start to describe the excellence in food and service. The attention to detail is evident in everything. It's a quite and elegant place but not pretentious. The experience was comparable to Michelin star restaurants. Highly recommended.More

for you to get accurate information about any restaurant is to contact the restaurant direct. Asking a guest of that restaurant is not always reliable.

The listing on Trip Advisor, says vegetarian friendly. Does this mean that you ask in advance and get whatever they decide. (As in, there is no choice if vegetarian) Would be good to know. Thank you

I am Portuguese and this is my favorite restaurant in town. They are talented and very dedicated to provide the customer the best possible experience. Calling first is a good option to guarantee an excelente vegetarian meal.
