They were reasonably busy but not excessively. They took the order pretty quickly and the main meal was reasonably quick. Now the issues arise, way too much olive oil was poured over the meat, the exhaust fumes from the traffic was terrible and the wait for service after the main meal was excessive. The price was reasonable however, and the... More

Great waiter, food , wine Waiter took time to help us choose wine. He then came back and said he thought he had a better wine and cheaper than his first recommendation . If we didn't like it he would change it fre of charge. Can't get better than that.

Beautiful piri piri chicken freshly grilled at the front of the restaurant - served with a huge plate of fluffy rice - absolurely delicious. Finished off with a lovely tiramasui and a complimentary nip of port. Outstanding quality plus lovely staff. Will definitely return.

We enjoyed two meals here and would recommend the lamb, either the stew or the kebab, absolutely delicious. The shrimp cocktail starter is also superb along with the service, which includes a lovely tot of Port at the end.

After cycling all day the wonderful traditional Portuguese meal the four of us had here was welcome. On top of the tasty food we had exceptional service as well.

Handy for those staying at Balaia golf village with less than 10 mins walk. Good portuguese food recommend the kebabs (lamb was so tender). Kids (early teens) shared a kebab and they were happy to bring extra veg/chips if we needed. Recommended.
