As most everyone else remarks the location and views are just perfect but everything else is a big let down. Apart from a charming Danish waitress I always feel surprised when the bill comes. We always go for the cheap tourist menu but with all...More

Had a lovely lunch here. Food was nice and the atmosphere was enjoyable. It took a little while for the kitchen to kick into action.

First time we've eaten here and I confess the mixed bag of reviews gave us some cause for concern... However, all was well! We had feijoada, which can often end up as a tasteless mess in the wrong hands but which was surprisingly good. Decent...More
