We visited Friday and really enjoyed our lunch with friendly service. I loved the slow cook pork ribs, my husband will have a challenge to create similar! His hake with clams was also really enjoyed. They were large portions for small eaters. We will be...More

This restaurant is deservedly very popular, great food, good ambience and friendly service. Whether your taste is fish or meat the cuisine is excellent and value for money for the quality offered.

Particularly the tasting menu's are interesting. The kitchen is one of the best in the area, but the interior (somewhat messy at places) is not up to the same standards. It also can get noisy (pets allowed..). Service is correct but not classy. Winecard is...More
