We were a party of 8. We went for dinner and it was slow - it was Thursday evening. The waiting staff were attentive and swift. The menu is extensive. I found it a tad pricy. The place is relatively small but very well decorated. It's cosy. We were satisfied, so will probably go back.

First there is the broken down decor, I am not very picky with such things but really this is truly unbelievable, the chairs have a lot of its fake leather leaving the yellow foam showing, lamps are missing from the wall decor, and generally the smoky unclean environment isn't a good for a place to eat.

Good restaurant with nice environment. Very comfortable. The meal was good and well cocked. Many options between fish and meat I eat the steak with pepper sauce (photo) Good wine choices Bad thing... It's allowed smoke inside. Bad option from the owners. Medium price, but have quality.

I have had many meals here with a Portuguese colleague. The meals are very good from salmon, octopus, steak and pork. I am quite partial to there stuffed capsicum entree.

We were a large group and the food and service may have been good but the restaurant allows smoking and that's a big turn-off as far as we're concerned. Surely Europe has moved on from this?

Really nice decoration, good food but they do push it on the price. It will set you back around 20 euros per person. One of the best in Beja

Last 3rd of Sptember me, my wife and son decided to celebrate my wife's birthday by going to a new place in town. I stopped by to have a look and take a pick at the menu. It sounded just fine.
