Not a lot has changed in two years. At 12.50€ for the tourist menu you can eat cheaper and better in this town. Three choices we made for our dessert were unavailable and one starter.

Some in our party had okay meals but one person was served bad swordfish. Too old or something. Other meals were indifferent to average. Go to adjacent restaurant A Lota which is a bit pricier but much better quality and service.

My wife and I decided to eat here after visiting Pedro's across the street. Looked like fine dining. Decided to have the tenderloin steak. Tough as nails, fried onions were uncooked placed over the bit of salad. Couldn't believe it when I saw that the "chips" were frozen cardboard. My wife had the chicken piri piri. Bland and again served... More

We ate here as a family and chose the excellent value for money tourist menu. Huge choice of dishes, all of which we tried were excellent. Serving both fish meat and vegetarian. The menu included bread drinks and sardine pate and olives, with 3 courses. Choice of about 20 different puddings. Really popular with fairly large groups of people, very... More

Ate lunch here and ordered grilled sardines with potatoes and salad @ 9.50 euro!.The young waiter mad a mistake and came out with a grilled selection of sardines, sea bass, salmon & squid. He was very apologetic and offered this for the same price AND a free drink. The food was excellent but we were unable to finish it all.... More

We went to Hera as recommended by a friend. When we arrived it was full, which was a good sign. We were told it would be ten minutes for a table, which turned into twenty minutes. Plus we had to wait stood up as there is no waiting area so we had to dodge the speeding waiters for that time.... More

Great Staff, Great view. But that's where the superlatives end I'm afraid. Oh ... to be fair the tomato sauce on the mussels which I had for starters was exceptionally tasty but the mussels were minuscule and not especially fresh. Tomato, onion and garlic isn't a combination you can bugger up. The rest of the food was straight out of... More

Ok so a lunchtime visit here as a recommendation by my mother who lives local. We opted for the tourist menu, which you have to ask for, and is actually only known about by the locals. Not as much choice as the main menu but a 3 course lunch time meal including, cava, the bread, olives and paste, coffee and... More

Had a lovely meal with friends. Our party had a selection from the menu including the Chicken Piri Piri, Clams, Omelette and Gambas all very tasty and good value. They have a selection of very reasonable wines which we sampled. Overall it a well run traditional Portuguese restaurant with very pleasant staff.
