Expensive for ok quality. Very SLOW service. The whole quarter are seafood restaurants and they seem to have monopolized price level.

Nice lobster salad. Prawns slightly overdone. Rice - very big portion. Fish - mero - nice and juicy. Good overall and a long and interesting wine list. Most expensive meal of the weekend in Portugal - but not sure that it was the best.
