Excellent octopus rice, delicious carob, fig and almond cake, but the best bit was the staff: they were lovely with everyone and fluent enough in (at least) 4 languages to make jolly small talk and keep all very happy. Very reasonable price too.

I've been here in 2012 and I liked it, although it was a little bit pricey. Great service (e. g. the main waiter/owner Pedro explained us why they don't have Coca-Cola, for social & environmental reasons, which turned out to be great because we chose...More

We stumbled across this gem as we strolled along the harbour in Santa Luzia. The decor was charming and there were several tables filled on a somewhat breezy May Friday at lunchtime. The owner was charming and helpful. He introduced us to our fish -...More
