    tapas starters were v good. main of salmon on thai veg disappointing as veg were simply soaked in soy sauce. pork medallions were good. we were overcharged for wine and had to ask to have bill corrected - assume human error but worth watching!

    Great good. Nice service. Would defo visit again.

    One suggestion is that the child high chair is replaced for something more comfortable. A comfortable chair with a table means a more enjoyable meal as the type of chair is very basic and hard wood and a child won't stay there a long time. We have came across this chair a few times in Portugal and it really doesn't work for our child.

    Apart from this you will have an excellent meal in a very homely different type of setting but can't fault it.

    Thanks.

    Our first visit but not our last! Excellent food - succulent tapas to start with, followed by the super fish curry and a chicken with a truffle crust in a mushroom sauce. The best meal we've had in the area in years. We had a very warm welcome from the staff who were attentive and helpful throughout. Thank you!!

    We enjoyed our meal, the staff were pleasant. I guess this time in March is off season so it wasn't surprising that the restaurant was very quiet. We'd go again.

    We had a lovely Sunday lunch here. I ordered the roast beef and Yorkshire pudding, my husband ordered the chicken. We had a little wait for it but it was worth it. My husband expected a Yorkshire with his chicken which he didn’t get but on asking, one was swiftly delivered. 3 enjoyable courses for €18 was really good. If we go back to the area would definitely go here again.
