"Wow! Just one of the top restaurants in Portugal for me now. Located in pretty location, graceful interior, spacious, what a friendly staff today were serving our lunch, we appreciate so much that we were welcomed to have it even if we came almost to the closing time. But the most important is the FOOD! It is so so so delicious, that we were just murmuring our pleasure loudly, from everything what we have ordered - everything was so so delicious and interesting, presentation of food with little details also worth applauses. Thanks amazing people, who make this food. But manteiga de cabra - just blowed our mind away! That was incredible and new! Wow! Wow! Wow! Wines - such a big collcetion. Thanks a lot! We will come back 50 more times to your restaurant. Yumm!"
