We can particularly recommend the seafood plate (for two) with rice and grilled sardinhas. Although the restaurant is mostly frequented by locals, they have English menu and communcation is no problem. Nice walk to the restaurant from the new center along the old main street.

The food is nice but the waitresses look like they don't care about the customer. The service is underwhelming and slow. It is also quite expensive.

This place was recommended to us by the hotel manager. It is slightly away from the main square, but worth the nice walk through the streets. It is slightly pricier than many other restaurants in town (average 1-3 EUR on each item) but the quality...More

This is supposed to be a locals' restaurant, but on the evening we came to dine there were all but locals. Nevertheless it is a good place to eat. Not fantastic, not the best you've been to, but good (and not too fancy either). Dine,...More
