The first of May is not the right day to have a meal at this restaurant. We had the traditional Caldo Verde soup. It had not much flavour and just one peace of sausage. The grilled fish was a bit of a disappointment. The cod...More

I had the local soup, veg with chourizo, and the cutlass fish. The main dish came with green leafy veg and potatoes. I washed all of this down with a glass of local red. The soup was very nice and the fish superb. Best potatoes...More

After failing to get a table at Linda's, we stumbled on this and wow, it was good. Very good staff and tasty, well cooked and large portions with some great local wines to wash the meal down with.

We can particularly recommend the seafood plate (for two) with rice and grilled sardinhas. Although the restaurant is mostly frequented by locals, they have English menu and communcation is no problem. Nice walk to the restaurant from the new center along the old main street.
