The service really let this place down, rude and abrupt waiter. Check your bill as we were charged for things we did not have! €14 for a few slithers of cheese with no bread, brash service. Avoid!!

We very much enjoyed our dinner. Nice setting, friendly and correct staff and well prepared dishes. But, portions way too big. I.e the starters were like main courses and the main courses would have been fine for 2 people. Hence we could not face any...More

We visited for lunch. The restaurant is modern, clean, and bright. The food was excellent - imaginative, well presented and very flavourful. The staff could have been more pleasant, but we enjoyed our lunch very much.

Based on the previous review we booked to come here and not disappointed. Each variety had a very distinctive flavour. Highly recommend the Arroz Boletus Y Bacalau. Great local wine, waiter with character and a fantastic view - what more could we ask for?

We were a bit early, at 8:30, so we were the only ones there for the first half hour or so. 9 -9:30 would be a better time to go for dinner. There was no set menu, but plenty of choice on the à la...More
