We had high hopes for this restaurant having read good reviews but unfortunately they were not realised. Yes the view is lovely ( but no better than El Mirador). The dining area is huge and felt soul-less. The food arrived very quickly and I doubt it was freshly cooked. I would not describe the menu as Portuguese.

Went there last week on the basis of a resident's recommendation, wish we had found it before. Great location and service, and even better food-I ordered lobster, in fact they gave me two beautifully cooked ones. My friend said the chicken was the best he had ever tasted. Throw in the free olives, dips and bread, and the fact that... More

This rooftop restaurant is situated on the third floor and has spectacular views out to seamwhich we enjoyed with a great caipirinha. We started by sharing grilled prawns and rock barnacles, followed by two different prawn in rice main courses. This place is a real gem and well worth a visit.

Rooftop restaurant, attractively set out. Friendly staff and good food - lots of fresh fish and seafood, some with a spicy or fruity twist!

Best place to have lobster in Sal-Rei... The restaurant had a fabulous view over the bay and the food was delicious. Many thanks to Tiago and Sónia for their marvelous restaurant.
