I have no words to describe how pleasant it was and what a good time we had. The food was so worth coming twice in less than 24 hours and the working people as well as the owner are just as great!

Authentic and a really fine restaurant! Top grade service and high quality food. And thanks for not showing fotball in the dining area, like all other Portimao restaurants ;-)

Decor is quite a statement - don't imagine it would be to everyone's taste. Food is bog standard takeaway curry at 15 euro each. Overpriced.
