We wanted a light dinner and got just that with superbly grilled sea bass and sea bream. They came with salad, a side of spinach gratin and with a glass of rose each we were in heaven! The fish was so fresh, well cooked and with excellent service in a busy restaurant, full of happy customers, there's little here that... More

We had a meal on the 28th of September and it was absolutely lovely. My family have eaten at this restaurant 3 times during our two week holiday and every time the staff and food have been great.

This restaurant offers good service and good food at good prices. We visited a couple of months ago and were very impressed. Service was goose and the monkfish was memorable It was very busy when we visited and this is a testament to its well deserved popularity. We will definitely go there again when we are back in November

Firstly we loved the feel of entering what seemed like someone's grand house. Unfortunately the weather wasn't good enough to sit outside but it was lovely inside. The staff were very attentive and really good with the children- even playing along that my son was having sea bream instead of sea bass. The food was very tasty, quick and reasonable.... More

We dined here Monday evening. Service was very good. The food was excellent. The scallops au gratin were to die for. We will be back.

To start with, the gin & tonic was sublime- no wine needed. Scallops speciality were delicious as was the soup. Sole and steak, with salad, vegetables and delicious spinach au gratin. Couldn't fault the food. And the service was excellent too.

Family restaurant serving Portuguese traditional cuisine, has in dishes like Monkfish "Pituxa" or Grilled Lamb Fillets with Mint sauce some of their dishes of excellence. Fresh fish daily, assorted meats and various desserts. Enjoy our magnificent terrace during midsummer, or stay warm near our fireplace during winter evenings. Moderately priced.
