This restaurant is on the river, you can eat in or sit out. It is spotlessly clean, portugese meat or fish. The price is very good about 55 euros for 5 people with drinks. People queue and wait for tables.

Me and Mrs Eats had the dorada, beautifully barbecued, great flavour. I'd rate that 5 out of 5. Rest of the family meals were rated as good, hence the 4 out of 5 all round. Service was good and attentive.

This restaurant offers decent food and offers superb value for money. I had the minute pork for lunch (5€) which came with chips, an egg and rice. The pork was lovely. Typical Portuguese restaurant and I'd visit again.

The atmosphere is a bit basic but this is more than made up for by the quality, quantity and price of the food. Excellent fresh fish, dish of the day and menu choices,
