Jota Lita is family run and always bustling with customers. The starters are suprisingly tasty and the portion sizes were huge (really good avocado cocktail). Mains come with mountains of rice and vegetables... you certainly won't go hungry! Save room for the tequila rose or port that is left on your table at the end of your meal. The staff... More

We visited for dinner and the place was full, but we only had to wait a few minutes for a table. They certainly pack the tables in tight, so you can hear other couples' conversations. No matter though, the place is nice because the staff make you feel very welcome and they are very jovial. We ordered the grilled piri... More

Have been here a number of times and it is always really nice. The food is uncomplicated but done very well. All mains come with great portions of sides. They are always generous to offer more if you like also. Nice deserts and great little free shots at the end of the meal. The people there are really helpful and... More

Lovely restaurant ran with the same members of staff for many years. Food-fresh and well presented - good selection - large portions . Customer service is brilliant - nothing is too much trouble. Portuguese style steak - beautiful meat and flavour. Complimentary drinks at the end of your meal at certain times - lovely finishing touch... We go there time... More

The red snapper was shared by 2 of us and they said it was excellent. I had Portuguese steak which had a lovely sauce but a bizarre slice of cooked ham on the top. The other 3 had different meals but all three thought they were also very good. The staff were all excellent. The port and strawberry liqueur were... More
