Menu changes each week. Some items are always available. Alan prepares every dish personally. If you're looking for something different and delicious, this is the place for you. Cash only and slightly pricey but well worth every penny!!!!

The food here is delish and a modern spin on traditional Portuguese fare, the owners go out of their way to accommodate and the drinks are potent.
