What an amazing place to eat. We only had a shared starter and drinks. That's why I haven't rated it higher. The service was ok. The location is somewhat unusual set in rocks, very picturesque. We are planning on going back on holidays next year, so would defineately go again.

Lovely location. walk through the caves for some fantastic photo opportunities especially with the moonlight on the water. bar/restaurant improved by the sunshades and really nice for a restaurant outside of Carvoerio but very close to walk.

Parts of this amazing cliff top walk are fairly rigorous. But there will soon be a great boardwalk along a portion of the cliff. Some sections are already complete. Especially dramatic at sunset and at high tide.

Happened upon this place whilst cliff top walking from Rocha Brava to Carvoeiro. Initially stopped for drinks but ended up staying for food. Bar staff were very friendly and helpful. View was unique and charming. Weather was fantastic but would like to be there when sea is rough!!! We eat off the main menu but chose a selection of starters... More

This place is worth the climb up and down the steep steps as it takes you to a setting that is not seen anywhere else. The blow hole and the rock formation is fabulous and a beautiful sightseeing trip

the cliffs are among the most spectacular of the whole Algarve just east of Carvoeiro. The Algar Seco and other blowholes(portugese: Algar) make the cliffs even more imposing.

This is a fantastic place, beautiful view, but you do need time to explore it. It involves some climbing down and up, but well worth the exercise.

Visited Algar Seco twice over the past couple of years, each time it got better, views from the caves were amazing, the walk was relatively easy, let anybody in a hurry past as it is worth taking your time to soak it all up.
