Had a great evening here, excellent service and a fabulous cataplana of various fish, simple but so tasty and great quality. Very reasonable price and a good atmosphere.

Had a great time here. Service was excellent and the food was great. Main course was excellent, but then Carte de Ore frozen sweets let it down for me. If the Chefs are that good why can't the provide home made desserts ???? Loved the main, but didn't go back.

On arrival manager was rude and took 20 minutes to clean a table for 2! Food was shocking, my girlfriends steak main was braising steak drowning in gravy, nothing like the description given by the waiter. My fish main was greasy and bland. At the end of the 'meal' we explained that the mains were not very nice but fell... More
