This is a cosy little restaurant in the historical centre. Friendly place, they offer you a glass of Port Wine when you come in) and unusual choices in the menu: puff pastries with different choices. We had the chicken and the vegetable one and they were both good. In summer it should also be great, as the restaurant is located... More

Nice finding a good restaurant that's a bit away from the city center, pretty much alone on its own corner. The best dishes are puffed pastry, filled with meat, seafood, or vegetables. The meal was good, not great, but service was fine and the location excellent.

Absolutely delicious savoury pastry dishes. Prawn and monkfish and wild meat puffs were amazing. Friendly service.

Arrived there only half an hour before closing time and left late... We did order some garlic pizza and oyster mushrooms and... caipirinha, and were served as if we were to take a menu. And when I did apologize for being that late, the lady said not to worry ab.it. The drinks were fab. and the 'snacks' were delicious and... More

First evening we had a very good shellfish rice but the second one we had spaghetti with mushrooms and prawns which was awful; they just boiled the pasta, fried the mushrooms and prawns and tossed it on top. The atmosphere of the place is nice, though.

Ate there last night and we couldn't finish half the food. My girlfriend loves cheese, and can eat a block of cheese in one sitting, but the amount of greasy cheese they put on their food was ridiculous. - the setting was really nice and they had a good prediner spread. The soup was decent, and cheap. The service was... More

Located in a side street away from the main tourist haunts they try a bit harder than the norm. Been open for just over a year. We enjoyed a lovely meal outside in the square among the orange trees. Seemed to be very popular with the locals and the food was both excellent and original - I enjoyed the monkfish... More
