My wife and I had espada (black scabbard fish) and espetada (skewered beef), both of which were good. Large portions that come with chips, potatoes, rice, salad and vegetables. The restaurant is frequented by tourists and locals, which is always a good sign.

The restaurant can be found in a very nice place with an amazing panorama. We ordered food for 2 personnes but it would have been enough for 3 as well. The staff is nice and the prices are surprisingly cheap.

Don't be discouraged by the looks of the restaurant and its location. The food is really excellent as well as the service - professional and helpful (at least the young man we had the chance to be our waiter).
