Excellent food very reasonably priced. The octopus rice is highly recommended and even something a simple as the BBC chicken is divine.

Fried little squid again plenty of them chose salad and potato. My friends first choice of fish wasn't available and the alternative one was a big fish grilled on the barbeque. Excellent

Good honest home cooked food all at an excellent price. The squid was amazing and the chicken cooked on the BBQ grill was great.

If you want simply prepared and deliciously honest food, with very reasonable prices and don't mind if the somewhat uncommunicative (yet NOT unfriendly) owner is distracted by football (a common malady in Portugal) and The Price is Right while simultaneously feeding his family and friends...More
