Had a delicious meal here. Highly recommend 😄. Duck and lamb particularly tasty. Surprisingly quiet. Can't understand why!

This is a very smart restaurant on the vale do lobo border. What it has going for it is good food and a quiet relaxed atmosphere. But it doesn't have the buzz of many of the restaurants in the area and attracts an older clientele....More

Loved this restaurant and have been going for many years. I don't know why but this year they've changed the name and format. I believe it hasn't changed hands though. It was always slightly expensive but the food was top notch so it didn't matter....More

Their tender lamb chops are succulent, however their lamb curry is a nightmare. Tasteless and wet. Obviously not marinaded meat just wacked into a pan and then the sauce poured over and brought to the table. Ordered a cheese cake, have no idea what was...More

We were the only customers as we booked for 7pm due to having young children. This was fine, though a bit weird as it is quite a large outdoor area. The food was very good and especially the lamb curry was delicious.
