We really enjoyed our dinner here. The service was great. Portions were big. Our waiter Fernando was very nice and pleasant. The best part is the cosy athmosphere.

We came here for a group dinner which you think would lead to a bad review but we were extremely delighted. Arriving at the table there were buns and tuna tartare (more like a creamy tuna spread) as well as a stick of chorizo slices...More

Although the restaurant itself is very cosy and the location is wonderful, do not go to this restaurant. When we got there, it was so understaffed that it took the waiters nearly 30 mins to take our order. While we were waiting for our food,...More

The place and the view are great, but the food... Our bacalhau with srimps and nata was dry and the vegetarian pasta was ok. Very expensive for what is served.

Food is good and the server was superb! When discussed wine selection, he did not go for high priced wine but selected a really good wine at good price. The lapin was really good as was the sea bass. Cozy location.

No need. Just pop in. During busy times like lunch and dinner this place is easily fully booked. I strongly suggest to come in a bit early. All the very best! 😊
