We went here for dinner and had the grilled swordfish, and the Fish rice. Food was decent - no complaints there. Service was average I'd say. The restaurant is a no-frills kind of place, with inside and outside seating. On a bustling street corner with...More

Service is random and food pretty uneven. Grilled fish was good. The other dishes were not interesting. Appetizers were expensive and pretty small portions. It was nice to sit outdoor on a warm summer day

Lovely sangria. The alentejo steak was good too. A tureen of octopus rice was brought and could have fed all of us. Didn't enjoy the rabbit and clams. Good friendly service and ambience.

We we're not a big fan of this place. We ordered a meat and a fish dish who where drowned in a salty sauce. The service was quiet bad (the waiter was not nice at all) and we got the wrong check. Twice! Would not...More

The rabbit in wine sauce was with mushrooms out of the tin and the plate was filled on one side with awful oil dripping french fries and rice on the other side. There was a micro salad. The caraffe of house wine was quite pricey...More
