We came here on the basis of other reviews, looking for a good, simple, local restaurant. This place delivers. I recommend that you book because it's small and there is a lot of passing foot traffic hoping to grab a table. The menu is short,...More

I'm a bit late in answering this but I agree about getting the hotel to book. As a rule, I always try to get the hotel to book; particularly if my language skills are challenged, as they are in Portugal.
