Food was not too bad but tool of a waiter was arrogant and unprofessional. Pricey for quality of food

We were staying in the Sofitel hotel where the restaurant is located, and ate dinner there on our first night. We both had risotto with fresh scallops -- and they really were fresh. Overall the service was professional and friendly. Perhaps not true "fine dining," but very good indeed.

Along side this we paid €10 for 3 glasses of wine to compliment each dish. We had a lovely evening staff were very friendly not... More

We spent a week in Portugal, and this restaurant was one of our favorites. After a drumbeat of delicious Portuguese pork, seafood and boiled potatoes sorts of meals, we enjoyed this French-influenced restaurant. Good food and good presentation. Attentive service. My wife really enjoyed the Magic Tree appetizer.
