Our favorite place in Sesimbra! Great food, great wine selection and great service. Highly recommended! One of us is vegan and they make wonderful veggie dish as well. It’s a small restaurant, so better book in advance

All went fine until they went mad about giving the table to others. Obviously their table booking management or the lack of it is awful... Or maybe just trying to maximize profits above all.. don't go you will be kicked out during desert! Want a...bunch!More

Excellent food, service and atmosphere. Tastes like home made with an even better taste. I would recommend this place anytime. We ate octopus and steak both were surprisingly good.

We had the most delicious meal here and the service was excellent from start to finish. A young man explained everything to us and gave his recommendations. He also recommended the Sangria that was out of this world. We ate the lobster in green curry,...shrimps in chilli and garlic and Moquera. All of the dishes were wonderful. We liked it so much we booked for two days later.More

Everything was great, especially the octopus and basil-strawberry mousse. Not just a dinner, but an experience to remember

The place is small and hidden in the back streets of Sesimbra, not too far from the marginal. It does not offer many tables, nor a very large menu, but everything that is being offered is fresh and made to order. Do not go if...you are in a hurry. We ordered a caldeirada and waited for it to be prepared! The service is efficient and friendly. If you want traditional Portuguese cuisine, this is definitely the place to go!More
