Best grilled sardines

I love grilled sardines and cant remember how many restaurants I tried. Here they were best. They seem to add some different spices to the dish which make them taste a bit differently. Have been there twice in 4 days.

we ate in Restaurante Tamarillo at Praia Dos Olhos Do Agua and couldn't believe the fantastic value we got for our money. Excellent service and great value for our big family.

Someone should teach the waiting staff to smile - they serve decent food at reasonable prices but struggled to create a welcoming environment. This was a pity as it could have been so much better

This restaurant was open early in the season so we got to enjoy it a few times. They have large beer for one euro (a huge draw on a warm day!!) and they serve the very best-tasting chicken Piri piri. We've had delicious pizzas as well. The waiter, Raj, is a lovely young man who has family in Canada.

We thought to get a burger each and eat it on the beach to enjoy the beautiful scenery, should have known better to eat at a place that's deserted despite having a great location. My husbands burger was not just like "tourist food" like mine, but even decayed. He felt sick and I was too upset to argue with them... More

We popped in for a quick snack, and a pint, after walking from Oura. As our last bus back appeared to be at 19.15, we did not have time for a full meal, and both settled for a cheese burger with all the trimming, for 3 euro, and a pint, for 1 euro. Both items were delivered by very friendly... More

We were a large group with a varied choice from the menu. Sat outside on a lovely December day. Food was good but first person (me) had nearly finished before the last person (my wife) was served.

My friend and I called at the Tamarillo for a cool, large glass of beer on our way to the beach as it was advertising it's happy hour price of 1euro and guess happy hour lasts longer than an hour! We didn't eat here as weren't hungry at the time but the food looked good! Good service, lovely view, quenching... More

We wanted somewhere we could see the sea and watch the world go by for lunch and when we saw the sign for €1 pints for happy hour we thought we'd have a drink and look at their menu. The menu is very good with everything from fish, to steak, pizzas and fresh kebabs to salads. We had a wonderful... More
