The table was perfect for us. Soups and chicken wings were a great start to the evening and were delicious. The main courses of hake,... More

You will get excellent fresh produce at reasonable prices. Their wine is by the glass , carafe or bottle and is competitive.A lovely place to eat with friendly attentive staff. You need to book as dinner is only served on Friday and Saturday. You can get breakfast and lunch 6 days a week.
