Unique décor, friendly staff, but most importantly - wonderful cuisine. And at an extremely reasonable price; it's not much more than other local restaurants but definitely a step above. Some very creative takes on traditional Portuguese meals. Highly recommended for business, family, or date night. Be aware that parking isn't the most convenient, but that's a small price to pay...

Great views of the surrounding area as you approach the restaurant. A somewhat unprepossessing front masks an attractive interior well set out and interestingly decorated. A good selection of Portuguese food available served by smartly dressed, professional staff, all eager to please. The owner Dona Evalina also delivers service with a smile and makes sure things run as they should.... More

Went to this restaurant at lunchtime 3 times in 2 weeks. Fabulous fixed price menu (4 courses, including coffee) at 10 euros. The food was fabulous. Menu changes daily. Only open Wednesday thro Sunday. Excellent friendly service from helpful staff. I can't think of any faults. Ticked all the boxes even down to reasonably priced good wine. A busy restaurant... More
