Couldn't fault the food and service we received on both occasions we visited this restaurant. Good choice of menu and reasonably priced. Staff friendly. They have their own staircase access from the road opposite the Melia hotel entance but it is still a steep climb but well worth the effort.

What more can I say, problem is I have to write something! Not the worst food at all and mine was nicer than my wife's! But it was just average, nothing special!

Visited on second night after Restaurant Chancellor across the road first night. Tourist menus both times. At 2 euros dearer, thought this might have been better, but very similar if not worse. Overcooked fish, vastly overboiled vegetables. Not a star choice!

We both ordered Espetada, one chicken, one mixed meats. Both were served with chips and salad. Plenty of meat on the skewers, the chicken was thigh meat and still on the... More

Visited here two consecutive nights this week. Sergio and Claudio were very efficient and pleasant waiters. Chose food from main menu as we weren't aware of the tourist menu. However we were very pleased with food for the price and were offered complimentary Madeira as an aperitif and a poncha shot at the end of the meal so a good... More
