First time visit. Had beef skewers Portuguese style. Pretty dull, nothing much to write home about but seemed popular, perhaps because wine was included. Wrong choice for me. Others dishes being served looked appealing. Staff attentive.

This restaurant is near to where we were staying. On looking at the menu we decided to go for the beef skewer. It was lovely and well presented. We also had the house wine which was perfectly acceptable. Good service and helpful staff.
