We visited on the back of a local recommendation, and were quite delighted with the welcome, the service and the food in this small family run establishment. Quality of food and excellence of service are the standards rigourously applied to their restaurant by Fernando and Paulo.

Smart restaurant but menu is pretty basic. Nothing very exciting. Standard of service and food good. Bit pricey for 'ordinary' meal.

Had an excellent meal with some friends. The welcome and the friendliness from the staff is second to none. When the food came it was cooked well with good portions. Even got a free glass of port before leaving. Very reasonably priced.

Sole menieure almandine with lots of fresh steamed veggies. Very nicely cooked and served. Plenty for us to share. With a bowl of... More
