The sea food is superb, the restaurant is enhanced by relaxed but attentive staff. It has a special ambiance. If you get there when there is music it takes the whole experience to another level. Unmissable.

We had a lovely meal at A Lagosteira, the salmon and prawn kebab was delicious as was the tuna steak with the onion sauce!! The prices were very reasonable for what was a good quality meal!! All the waiters were very helpful and friendly. We would definitely return.

The food here is really poor. We're talking bad British food from the 1970s. The tuna steak was overcooked to the point of having no moisture left, the vegetables soggy facsimiles of their former selves and the Portuguese onion suave was super oily. The calamari was uninspiring too. Our meal was such that it was difficult not to feel slightly... More

We really enjoyed this place. We were staying at the nearby Sheraton. Our toddlers enjoyed the playground as well as some excellent live Portuguese folk music. Wish we had found it earlier in the week as it was the best of the places we tried. Friendly staff that brought huge live lobsters round for the kids to see and hold,... More

Popped in for afternoon lunch based on Tripadvisor reviews as we were staying at the nearby Pine Cliffs. It is a nice spot to have some lunch, at in the outdoor terrace, and the playground was appreciated by our 1 yr old son! Service was friendly enough without being over attentive. Their version of Gambas Pil Pil at €17 was... More
