Our guide suggested this place, but we were slightly disappointed. They kept us waiting more than half an hour for the food pretending they were preparing it, but once we went downstairs to pay, we saw that the most part of them was ready and...More

The aperitifs tast like canned food and not fresh at all. Soft drink was warm. Employees arguing and screaming with each other. I'd strong recommend to avoid this restaurant. Save your time and money, go to a real restaurant.

I wouldn't go to this place again. I ordered the fish of the day and it came full of blood inside :( it was not properly cleaned. Disgusting!

Location was good. That's it. The food was nothing out of the ordinary and highly overpriced compared to other restaurants and it took about 50 min to get 4 tapas. The octopus (main course) we ordered was overcooked and the waitress said that it was...More

We had the most amazing fish platter ever! Delicious is not a sufficient word to describe the food here! We stayed outside on the narrow street getting the vibe of the old town. A very pleasant experience! We will always come back! Compliments to the...More

Four of us had lunch at this restaurant, inside rather than in the courtyard. Both areas were pleasant and airy - and quiet because it is located on a pedestrianised alleyway off the main street. A few smokers outside if that worries you. It was...More

we came here late at night to listen to fado - it's a tiny little bar with very little sitting room, and they have fado later at night. SO worth it - the night we were there, the world famous Fado singer, Mariza, made a...More
