We only went in because we were getting very hungry. Ignore that the place does not look very inviting. The food is simple but very good. Try the skewers! There is a choice of different meats prepared on a charcoal fire.

The staff were great. The food took ages, but no problem for us as it was worth the wait! Must visit! Great food and prices....

Thought we'd give it a go and glad we did. It is very unprepossessing from the outside, it looks like it's closed, but once in you feel like you're in Madeira! It serves traditional Portuguese dishes which makes a pleasant change. The staff/owners are really friendly and welcome you in like you're family! There was a large party in when we arrived (14 people) and it felt buzzy. We all had fish and beware, it comes on the bone so can be fiddly to eat but it was good. The place seems to be frequented by the local Portuguese which makes it feel all the more authentic. It's extremely casual and laid back - I like that!

On the 16th of May 2015, went for a First Communion party at El Forno, live in Jersey for 8 years never been there. It was amazing, the food, the staff and the environment.
