Good, speedy service even though the restaurant was busy. Friends enjoyed the steak and egg whilst I opted for the pizza. Whilst the pizza was well cooked, the cheese used was a little unusual.

My wife and I visited this restaurant around 7:30pm when it was fairly quite. Shown to a table by a waitress who neither smiled or spoke, just pointed. Given menus we ordered drinks, nothing complicated, beer for me fruit juice for my wife. The waitress obviously wanted us to order food at the same time which we did, We then... More

We both had fish skewers but they lacked any seasoning and mine had been slightly overcooked. However, the service was good and the staff friendly.

This place was the best surprise of our trip. Amazingly fresh grilled lobster and the tastiest clams we ever had! Staff need training when it comes to customer service but really good for Cape verdian standards. Probably serves the best food in the whole Island at affordable prices.

Was rated the best Pizza on island . Lacked depth and tomato sauce base was non existent . Pretty poor if that is the best they have to offer . Service from staff was awful.

The place looks relatively good, fish of the day was really big and fresh. Lasagne was warmed up and not tasty. Staff fine, not very flexible though. So fine if it was very cheap, but it's not.

Single person walk-in at 7:30pm on a Sunday. Was told it would be a 15 minute wait so I sat on the then empty bench by the door to wait (i.e. I am first in line). Other walk-ins came and joined me on the bench. At the end of my 15 minute wait the pair of Portuguese speakers who came... More

Excellent food with a nice restaurant atmosphere. The service is quite polite and doesn't take that long. The variety of the menu it's also worth to mention.

Family of five was served the best pasta and pizza we had in the last three Cape Verde Islands we visited. Would be happy to get this food in Italy! Very quick and professional service. Kids were tired and we got starters almost immediately and pizzas and pasta right after. Would recommend to anyone.
