Don't let the low prices put you off, the food is excellent and the staff are very friendly. Who can complain at a high quality sirloin steak for 12 euros!

Delicious food, great selection, very accommodating for our toddler. Highlights for us were the fried hake - so fresh it just melted in your mouth. Also chicken piri piri also very tasty. Would visit again on next visit to Portugal.
