    Welcoming and attentive staff, wonderful tasty assorted food. We had a great time. Definitely will be back soon. It's not a big space so a reservation is advised.

    It took too long for our order to be served... We stayed there for 2 and a half hours! The food wasn't delivered at the same time or in a continuous fashion. By the time the next dish came, the previous was already cold. The waiter was sometimes rude and her colleague had to come and cover her mistakes. The food was ok, it wasn't bad but nothing great either. Will not return

    Restaurante com bom ambiente. Ovos rotos, pimentos Padron e beringelas gratinadas ótimas. Boa mousse de chocolate e bom tiramissu. Bom local para jantares de grupo. Vale a pena a visita.

    Booked for 5 guests + 1 baby. On arrival, the table wasn't suitable for 5 guests - it was a table for 4, so 3 people were almost on top of each other and we had no room available on the table itself. The table was placed right in front of the A/C so everyone, including the baby, were under the cool wind from the A/C. Waiting time (for food, service) was way too long due to the fact of only having 2 serving employees - they need more people helping.

    UNFAIR, the guys put extra plates (10 plates more than what we ordered) on the table and force us to pay them.

    All tapas were tasty, and the wine suggestion also very good.
