Characterful cafe, nice inside and out with friendly staff and a local feel. Good food with a selection of specials for lunch which were simple but fresh and home made.

Great atmosphere with excellent live Brazilian music to eat a tasty garlic & prawn pizza to. Friendly staff who provided good service. Outside terrace is situated just below the steps to the Silves castle on top of the hill.
