We had 'lunch' here. No other guests, lights were off, cold inside. Service was about the same as the temperature. Lunch nothing special. Unbelievable that people rated this place with 5 stars. Prices are comparable to other places on the island. Not worth visiting.

The meat was excellent. The fish was also good. Lovely waitress who cooked too and had lots of chat about life on the island.

Been here lately after checking tripadvisor. Most reviews raving this place, my expectations were huge, as I love typical restaurants and local food. I rarely give poor or average reviews, because I search carefully before heading any place. This time I was wrong and regret.......More

It's a friendly place to lunch with a decent and simple menu. We eat picado 500g for 2 people. Maybe will try the sea food and lapas for a next visit.

A simple, friendly and cosy restaurant with a rustic feel, where the food is prepared with love and passion. Honest and simple dishes with our "touch".As we use to say: "it's our own dinning-room were customers are friends".On Sundays we close at 20:00. Monday is the "day off". Thank you. PLEASE NOTE: we don't accept reservations via internet.
