My husband and I had dinner here last night and it was absolutely wonderful! We ordered the sea bass en salt that was the best fish that I’ve had in Portugal! The atmosphere and service were equally as good. We will definitely be back!

The freshest fish I’ve tasted in a long time. The waiter showed us the fish before it was cooked so we could see how fresh it was. It was delectable. Simply served with green beans and potatoes.
