We have been to this restaurant in previous visits to Viana and enjoyed the food and ambience so decided to return. We were not disappointed. The restaurant offers a taster starter of local regional dishes which we had to begin. The wine and mains were well cooked and presented. And the service was excellent, The array of deserts was mouth... More

Had been recommended to us by hotel. Waitress/owner spoke English fairly well. Had a very delicious meal and very filling. Very Portuguese and we were very happy with the friendly service and the price. Service was quite quick except for the bill.

The family that own the restaurant - 3 generations we're welcoming and extremely helpful about the menu and wines. The father of the lovely lady... More

Dear client, Thank you for your comments. We are always grateful for our guest's opinion. The waiter that you guess right, is the owner and definitly "try" to speak an understandable english, but I assure you is not a good english. If he really understood that you wanted the bill, it wouldn't be very clever of him to present the... More

When I came to this place I've read some excellents coments about this restaurant, however when I and one colleague have diner there the food was spicy and doesn't have the real mediterranean flavour. The space is ok and nice, but it needs to have more carefull with the dishes.

Great food, excellent service - really interested in understanding what you want and making it special for you. Excellent wine list and good value. Authentic family recipes with a nod to contemporary tastes. Super octopus dishes and great rice plus fish dishes. We also enjoyed the seafood soup and vegetarian noodles. Proper homemade desserts to finish. Lovely people - next... More
