Remarkable lunch €8.50 including great wine. Four large sardines, 5-star salad presented like a top restaurant. We'll be back for the rabbit.

Went here last night and service is pretty good but the food was fairly bland. All pieces of fish on the skewer tasted the same and the fish Madeira style was also bland. Prices are fairly good but would not return.
