Although we were recommended to this restaurant, it was a great disappointment. The large eating area was very busy and noisy, with tables very close to each other. The food was not of good quality, and the service poor, so we made a hasty exit! Perhaps our expectations were too high.

The food was nice and it wasnt too expensive unless of course you want to pick a live lobster from their tank. I had kebab and my boy had the burger which came as two and they were tasty.

Was not a big seafood fan until I came here. Everything from start to finish was superb enjoyed every moment the staff were amazing. The manager was nice enough to stop and have a chat at the end of the night he was a good man. He even let us jokers see the crabs and lobsters up close. Highly recommend... More

I have to say that maybe my first review was slightly harsh. Visited for a second time and have no complaints. Maybe a tiny bit prices but food and service is probably worth it. So in hindsight I apologise if I put anyone off.

This is a charming restaurant where you can eat inside and out. Live music some nights. Children's play area in the garden so that parents can have relaxing meal yet see their children at play. We had sea bass as a main course, picked by ourselves and served by waiter who filleted and cut the bass at our table. Glass... More

Having visited this restaurant on many occasions we were disappointed this time. The service was very abrupt and almost formal. The food which is normally first class left one of our party with food poisoning - avoid the oysters. Everything else was ok, although a bit expensive although there was free entertainment which was as good as ever.

We ate here 3 times as we found it so good and prices very reasonable. Just down the road from Vale de Carros. Ambience great some nights with local artists playing/singing. Very friendly staff and complimentary glass of port to end meal
