Be comfortable, because Rogelio and Oscar are here to take care of you. Great food and sexy waiters. Guaranteed great night for the single ladies.

It is located on the hill, near the University of Coira and beside the old Cathedral. You can enjoy traditional Portuguese Foods.

Very slow service, and we thought that the food was not good quality compared to what we had paid. We had bolognese (No sauce) Very small Nicoise salad Omelette with cabbage (not very tasty) And waited a lot time!
