This is a lovely seafood restaurant with a nice outdoor terrace area. My partner had cod cooked in garlic and served on a pipe slate. It looked and smelt incredible. I had swordfish steak which I found to be a little too dry and salty. Service was excellent and very friendly.

We have been to Olhas De Agua a few times and this is one of our favourite restuarants, food is delicious and staff very helpful and very friendly. It is busy and you wait alittle while but well worth the wait as food is all prepared freshly.delicious.

Got over the look of a cafe from outside and decided to visit on our last night, glad we did. The kids had garlic bread starter which was huge and must have had 10 cloves of garlic on each :-). Our starter which was just the bread and olives was forgotten about but as soon as we asked a waiter... More

Having read the reviews we were really excited about visiting this place for traditional Portuguese food. We chose to sit outside and that was perhaps our mistake as we were largely ignored, service was slow and our food took an age to arrive. When it did, it was really disappointing. The tomatoes for the salad were green, the prawns in... More

Had a great starter of garlic bread but then felt quite rushed as the waiters came to give us our main meals right after our starters, was a bit disapointing but the food was great!!!

Excellent food and staff. Had passed this place on a number of occasions but a little put off by the red plastic chairs. However, after looking at trip advisor reviews decide to book. Reserved a table inside ( good idea as not a spare table in sight the place was packed). Excellent meal and excellent staff - worth a visit.

Service was quite slow. Garlic bread and prawn cocktail starters were amazing. Really tasty. It was ruined when the waiter came over to lift our plates before we were finished, we said we weren't finished and then 1 minute later another waiter came over and said to hurry as our food was coming and we had to lift the remaining...
