The food was terrible. Cheap, didn't taste well. Chips were bad, bread was like stone. We didn't like it and we don't recommend to eat here.

Good touristic location, thus also touristic prices. But food was authentic without taste modification for foreigners. For Portuguese standards expensive, for Northern European cheap. Good quality and size of portions. Good and fast service. Safe choice.

We dined here after visiting the monastery. A typical lunch menu was available. We each opted for a salad, tinned tuna & tinned octopus. Food was ok and the price was acceptable. Service was swift.
