Art and innovation in the Portuguese traditional dishes is the philosophy of this restaurant ! The quality of the products is very good as they are very well seleced, the dishes presentation is very nice.

Good traditional Portuguese cuisine but a touch of innovation. The portions are generous and cooked on time, presentation is simple but different. We were served on old plates with a lovely design. The dessert (Papos de anjo) was from heaven, great flavors. The staff was very busy, but despite that was very kind. For starters and first experience in Portugal it's a good introduction to typical Portuguese cuisine.

Wandered in here during off season and was the only diner for 2 hours. The couvert was rabbit in olive oil with garlic, bread, olives, cheese, meats. It was so much I declined a regular order. This and 2 beers was 10 euro.

I spent time speaking to the owners son and learned a lot about the area and Portugal and felt a genuine caring about my visit. Off season is difficult as there is little revenue so full service shouldn't be expected but this personal touch made a big difference.

Nice food, nice service, quiet, although children friendly. It has a lovely lunch on a sunny winter day in the patio outside.
