This restaurant is on the river, you can eat in or sit out. It is spotlessly clean, portugese meat or fish. The price is very good about 55 euros for 5 people with drinks. People queue and wait for tables.

Me and Mrs Eats had the dorada, beautifully barbecued, great flavour. I'd rate that 5 out of 5. Rest of the family meals were rated as good, hence the 4 out of 5 all round. Service was good and attentive.

This restaurant offers decent food and offers superb value for money. I had the minute pork for lunch (5€) which came with chips, an egg and rice. The pork was lovely. Typical Portuguese restaurant and I'd visit again.

The atmosphere is a bit basic but this is more than made up for by the quality, quantity and price of the food. Excellent fresh fish, dish of the day and menu choices,

Unassuming restaurant beside the river. The food and service were excellent. Very clean restaurant really good value for money. We had fish and meat dishes freshly cooked which were very reasonably priced. Would definitely recommend.

We happened upon this after a recommendation by the hotel. Really good quality food, cooked simply but really well and very very generous portions. The hazelnut pastry was brilliant .

Decided to revisit following previous years visits. Unfortunately the black pork off! My husband had the mixed meat platter, we shared huge plate of very tasty fries and fragrant rice, excellent value

Found this place by coincidence but was pleasantly surprised by the food. Setting next to the river but with traffic. We are outside because of the kids but the indoor area looked the part. The chicken is cooked to perfection. Moist and crispy BBQ flavours....More
