The host of our B & B recommended this restaurant and we were delighted. Ambience, food, presentation, and service, all were the best we've had in Portugal. Try the white fish with shrimp sauce. It is superb!

We had a very good meal here with our family. The service was great and the atmosphere had an old time, upscale feel. There is a small terrace and a much larger interior.

After a trip in Spain, we took a pitstop in Portugal. We were super happy with our food in Portugal especially after the trip in Spain with salty and oily food. The grill fish was fresh, juicy and tasty. It was wonderful. I cant use...More
