Really excellent homemade children's meals, much better than usual kids menus. We really enjoyed our food from the specials board, big portions and excellent service. Definitely recommended.

Restaurant in the centre, easy to be found. We ate 4 plates of the day: lamp stew, soup of the day, fried calamari 🦑, hake with lemon creme. Very good plates. We give an advice: GO TO THIS RESTAURANT.
