Went twice to this restaurant: once for lunch at the amazing rooftop terrace, once in the evening for dinner. Food was excellent on both occasions, and the wine selection didn’t disappoint you in any way. I do definitely recommand this restaurant in VN de Gaia!

However, restaurants just as nice for better value on the quay. And don't order the breaded mash, a friend ordered this and it was just like baby food. Kept us entertained but not very filling. Our villa had a great view across the river to...More
