If you don't like over-priced food and poor service look for somewhere else to go. Don't let you fool by how well-attended this restaurant seems to be. My first dish came with a fish so dry that it felt like eating flour right out of the box. Normally I am not picky at all but had to return that dish.... More

This place served me a very good espada. Not the banana-edition but a local version in garlic grilled with vegetables. Tasty. Perfect service from reallt nice guys. But the outside location needs some improvements for sure. That's why I stay with four points this time.

It's unique, but won't become a family favourite. I preferred the fried polenta another authentic dish that I had with octopus, yum! Service was very efficient. Would... More

We stopped after a levada walk at this restaurant. We had espetada, the local beef-dish. It was super! Nice terrace, great service and above all good value food. Espetada are small portions of beef roasted on a fire with lots of salad and super good patato-like dish. Definately worth the stop!
