This restaurant used to be better, since they moved the quality lowered. Anyway, it's always full because they have excellent fresh fish and seafood; the service is simple and quite rapid with a good quality/price rate.

We were recommended to this restaurant by a Portuguese friend and it certainly didn't disappoint. The service was extremely quick and we had to ask to delay things as we were waiting for a friend. We enjoyed a couple of Gin and Tonics while we...More

Great value for money - no menu it is either fish or meat. Go for the fish and you can get anything from sardines, sea bass and bream, cuttlefish fish, plus others you can only guess at. Ok you have to bone the fish yourself,...More
