    I can’t say that I was impressed with this place. Pretty calm and quiet, lovely and nice. There are not many dishes on the menu, so, you choice will be limited....

    The squid is beautiful, as are the Portuguese wines. The cafe has just expanded and the menu re-focused on Portuguese specialities.

    Great food and coffee although the place is small enough for the 'dine in' prices to be high. There's also no toilets facilities.

    I would go as far as to say the chorizo omelette sandwich is among the worst sandwiches I have ever eaten and extortionate for a cold omelette with minimal chorizo in baguette
