Agree almost entirely with the review below. We visited in mid-March and the area was pretty quiet. We chose this venue to eat on our first night as it looked the best. We were warmly welcomed and seated by the window, which enabled us to enjoy the lovely view. We chose appetizers rather than starters and we were glad we... More

Beautiful grilled sea bass for two, fresh tomato salad and some fries. Well cooked and served. No pressure as there was few customers on a sunny March lunchtime. Great views, in and outside. Restaurant decoration is typical Portuguese. Grilled fresh fish always to had but check the fresh fish price, ours was 55 euros a kilo. You guessed it, our... More

We arrived very early in the evening and were the only ones in, service was okay and staff friendly. Beautiful to watch the sunset and a lovely view of the beach. We enjoyed our meal, it was slightly more expensive but I suppose you need to pay for the location in some way as well. I would go back there... More

Each waiter refer to another waiter, none of the waiters were friendly they seemed to be under pressure "not to speak to the customers”. When the... More
