Very casual dining as you can/have to bring your own beverages. Their ribs and chips are the best in PE. I don't eat seafood, but everyone who does loves their prawns as well.

Ribs and chips with Portuguese rolls. The best ribs I have tasted and the sauce is the secret to their success!

A one of a kind experience! Great ribs, chicken and prawns, chips and toasted portugese rolls. Thats it! Served in large platters and eaten sommer with your hands. Loved every minute. This is what eating out should be like. Remember to bring your own wine.

Literally finger-licking food! Ribs and prawns and chips. Yum. Unpretentious with great hospitality. No frill and fancies just great food (lots of it!) at a great price. Oh yes, you can take your own wine and there is no corkage!
