If you're near Praia da Falesia then you must pop in to A Lagosteira. Wonderful seafood and sangria :-) Helpful staff, free wifi and awesome ambience.

Went to this restaurant twice. My husband had peppered steak , delicious . I had the cod, equally good. My second visit though I had a steak in a cream sauce. The steak melting in the mouth. Cooked to perfection. The cooking can be seen. We sat outside and really relaxed and enjoyed both evenings.

Service was friendly, dishes were well presented and the food was amazing. Paulo made us feel very welcome and valued as customers. The squid and prawn kebab was delicious. The champagne sangria was also a real treat! É bom!

This isn't the cheapest place in the area, but has a very large range of prices (if you want to spend lots on fresh lobster you can, but you can also get a delicious pork kebab with chips and salad for 10 euros). The staff are very efficient and friendly and the atmosphere is lovely, it's a pretty restaurant and... More

Very local for where we stay in Algarve which avoids driving/ taxis. Large indoor and outdoor eating areas. Very friendly and helpful staff as ever. Very good grub with decent wine list. No complaints but a few other local seafood eateries as good and cheaper.

Our first visit with friends who had been before. No complaints about the food or service but tooooo expensive! There are plenty of restaurants around this area that charge around 38€ to 40€ per Kg for fresh fish! Unfortunately this restaurant is overpriced at 46€ per Kg and the prawns and wine are similarly overpriced. Don't think we will visit... More
