Lovely friendly place, fresh food beautifully cooked. Cataplanas outstanding. The only downer would be that it would have been nice to know we were going to be charged for the bread and olives that were placed on the table when we sat down :-(

We ate in this restaurant 3 times during our weeks Holiday, every time it was brilliant, the staff are very friendly and help with your choice if needed, can recommend the Cataplana and the Skewers, try the Branca Sangria very refreshing.Would advise to book for evening it gets packed.

After we ordered the lunch special I noticed the tripadvisor certificate of excellence! Great simple lunch for 5 euro- chicken piri piri for my wife and fish n chips for me. Both meals nicely cooked and pleasant service. We would go again.
