It’s always a safe value for money. Good atmospheres for business and also to bring the family. Food is nice but does not have the wow factor! On Sunday Zambi has the Portuguese “cozido à portuguesa”, it’s very rich and full of flavour.

Nice restaurant with a large outdoor space. Wine and food are good and the meat dishes are better than the fish one. Very nice presentation of dishes.
