The restaurant is always busy. The covert has typical portuguese products, such as tuna Pate and Azeitão cheese. Food is very good, desert menu looks great. I will be back again for sure!

Having popped in for dinner (we got chatting to a chap on the door earlier on in the day) we returned for lunch twice in the space of 3 days!

The plates are huge, the food is delicious. The restaurant is located just across the road from the beach which is great. Everything is a bit overpriced in my point of view. The service was fast and efficient but a little smile here and there won't make any harm.

Byt as good as it can get in 45... More

Prime location but not the best quality food in town. In September I had the misfortune to get a bad portion of grilled prawns which led to an inconvenient night.
