Not sure why this place has such good reviews. Our meal was very basic. For the price, there are much better restaurants in the area.

Booked our first night's dinner on the internet prior to leaving the UK as we know how popular this restaurant is with clients from Pestana Palms. The steak is wonderful! Never disappoints.

HI there. It’s actually quite a long way from the cr7 hotel and probably not walkable but well worth making a trip to it as the food is really good. By taxi it would probably cost you about 5-7 euros to get there. Hope this... More
