    " We have visited before and both really enjoyed our visit, as the food was great and the staff were really pleasant and helpful. Sadly, I cannot say the same for this occasion. It was a different member of staff and even when I called to book, he was quite abrupt but I put that down to the fact that some people are not good on the phone. It turns out that he just wasn't a people person, at all, by phone or in person.

    We arrived at the restaurant and we were the only customers. My partner is heavily pregnant and the only thing that she was able to eat from the menu was the burger, so she ordered it and explained that it needed to be cooked well done, as she was pregnant and cannot eat rare meat. When it arrived, she thankfully checked before taking a bite, as it was bright pink and when she pushed with her cutlery, blood literally poured from the burger. This wasn't just a burger cooked rare but was actually raw in the main. We politely pointed it out and the whole meal was taken away. There was not much of an apology, if any and the meal was brought back 6 minutes later. Upon checking the burger, it was still very pink throughout the middle (probably medium rare, at best) and so she could not eat it. We decided not to send it back again, as this had been very off putting for her and so we just asked for the bill. We mentioned the issue, when paying and there was absolutely no apology given. In fact, the response was curt and rude. Another lone customer had arrived by the time we left and we heard the staff member say that he was going on holiday the next day and so I can only assume that he didn't want to be there but that is far from our fault.

    We were really disappointed, as my meal was lovely and the food and service that we had in our past visit, was of a really high standard but this terrible service has completely put us off ever returning. I have rated the food as 3, based on both of our meals. However, the rating would be much higher, had the dietary requirements of my pregnant partner been taken seriously. This is really not acceptable and the least that we could have expected was an apology. "

    We went on a Wednesday evening so the restaurant wasn't busy. Our food was delicious and the menu was both reasonably priced and wide ranging with the adde bonus of a selection of Portuguese specialities not seen elsewhere.
    We highly recommend it and will definitely return. "

    Came in on a Thursday night on recommendation from a friend and an absolute result. The food was excellent and the discount aside, so cheap. Menu is not vast but varied but we had 7 different dishes between us and all at least a solid 9 out of 10! Definitely something for every taste. Makes such a change from all the Turkish restaurants springing up. Looking forward to trying on a weekend as we heard the atmosphere is excellent. "

    A really good individual restaurant serving fantastic Mediterranean foods. We had sardines and clams for starters, skewered beef and octopus for mains. All the dishes were cooked to perfection and tasted beautiful. The deserts were also quite unique. The staff were friendly and helpful. It was nice for the chef to come out and talk to us about his dishes. We would recommend this restaurant highly. It was our first time but we will definitely be going back. "
