Lonely Planet review
White tablecloths under whitewashed arches equal rustic-meets-smart, and the food is great, featuring some lovely starters (including smoked salmon and clams with oil, garlic and coriander), plus gazpacho in summer. It’s near the former palace. The borrego assado no forno (roast lamb) is especially good (€15).
