This small design- restaurant ( about 30 pax max.) served us a perfectly prepared 1000 grams Steak for two. As starter we choose a Tuna Tataki that was not less in best quality. Rich wine selection and very friendly service.

Best food experience in Portugal. Salmon and tuna starters were excellent as were the octopus special and aged port rib main course. Great pairing suggestions for food and wines. Very quiet before 8pm and busy by 9.30pm. Excellent service.
