Really enjoyed our meal.

Nothing to criticize. Very good, respectful and humble staff. Clean, stylish restaurant. Other clients on the night we visited were having a good time. Beautiful, fresh wholesome food. Low prices helped by the current strength of the £.

Invited by friends and decided to have good old fish and chips, batter was crispy with real chips and mushy peas. I love Portugese food but now and again you need to be reminded of home. Fish kebabs looked good as well. Staff were prompt and spoke good English with a good sense of humour. Good wine, good food, good... More

The service in this restaurant is second to none and the views from the windows and balcony are amazing. The food is generally very good but let down by the use of frozen chips and vegetables. If these were fresh and prepared in the kitchen, the overall quality of the meals would be improved and I would give five stars.... More

Although this restaurant benefits from a truly inspiring view over Ria Fomosa, it hardly makes up for the terrible food and rude staff. Incredibly disappointed.

Have been to this restaurant many times but never before on New Year's Eve. We went with another couple. What a wonderful night the four of us had. The food was really great and there was plenty of it. We had several courses for starters and there was a wonderful buffet of main courses and desserts plus all the wine... More

Found this restaurant on first night and went back several times while on our holiday. Food was great and if you like fish they give you as much as you can eat. The staff are all very friendly and courteous and give great service. In summer months you must book as it is very busy. Great value for money. A... More
