This restaurant is typical of establishments that have a great view or are in a wonderful location, they don’t seem to think they have to try to please. The staff on my visit were uninterested and the quality of the food was poor. There are plenty of other restaurants in Olhos de Agua that are friendly and welcoming.

we ate on the verrandah overlooking the beach which has one of the best view in the world . The food is good and we have eaten here many times in the past . I was encouraged to choose Dorada which was perfectly cooked but on receiving the bill I thought it was overpriced at £55 euro's for the fish... More

Frozen as very chilly and slightly iced however our main course made up for that. we ordered seafood rice which was like a more liquid version of paella... More

Lunched here Saturday around 1.00 when they were understandably busy. Probably the best prawns we've ever had (Quartierian from down the coast) cooked to perfection with a bottle of Mateus Rose (for old times sake!) + bread and olives. Life just doesn't get much better. Great view, great service and lunch in the October sunshine. Same time next year I... More

We only popped in here for a drink, but really enjoyed it. It's a perfect spot to take in the beautiful view.

Having read an article in one of the magazines in our villa extolling the virtues of this fish restaurant we were looking forward to sampling a local fish dish. We chose fish of the day and were told a fish big enough for two would be selected, grilled and filleted and brought to the table. The resulting portions though tasty... More

Nice lunch in a prime location overlooking the sea and picturesque rocky outcrops.. Very pleasant staff who don't rush you even though there is limited outside seating. Have your camera with you.

Firstly I can't believe the ranking of this restaurant given the plethora of crappy looking eateries in the vicinity. They have to have the best location and view in the area. We were very well served to from start to finish, by an elderly gentleman who is about to retire to South Africa, believe me he will be missed and... More

We had lunch at this is charming small restaurant over looking the beach and sea.The food was excellent value and very tasty, we both had fish.Try and get a table on the terrace to get the best view.I would think the atmosphere in the evenings would be very romantic.
