Lunch

Visited based on trip advisor ratings. Lovely setting including a little play area. Chose large prawns which were brought to the table to choose from, then pay by kilo. Lovely meal but all agreed there are better places, perhaps we'd been spoiled earlier in other restaurants.

The Lag as it is known by locals is a real institution. We went with a regular who introduced us the the owner and his son who are real characters. Menu offers a great choice of traditional Portuguese fare, plus kebabs steak and great choices for children. Fresh fish,lobster and crab on show both tempting and great entertainment for the...

Very friendly staff and a very good menu variety (including children), you should plan a visit/meal here. Often you can hear good local musicians and the atmosphere is very good.

14 of us had a late lunch here whilst waiting for our villa to be ready. We chose it because of these reviews and because it was close to the villa. It was very quiet because it was afternoon. The service was friendly and helpful. Most of us had seafood, and enjoyed it although it was fairly expensive.

We had a great night here, the food is very good, great seafood and the prices were not too crazy. And bonus that it had a little playground so it kept my little one quiet. Would recommend although slightly pricier than O Antonio up the road.

Tinned Pickled Carrots upon arrival as an aperitif 😱😱😱 Had drinks then left couldn't face the food Be wary of the trip advisor reviews we were duped in to thinking this was a high class establishment It is not it is distinctly average from service to appearance Much nicer places close by

Great selection of snacks, meat, fish and seafood traditional Portuguese dishes. Paulo the manager does a great job catering for a small party... More

I used to love this restaurant whether we were having a casual lunch or a nice dinner but in recent years I think the prices have made it uncompetitive compared to its peers in the area. Recently a basic meal (no lobster/crab) still set us back over €100. There are better places in the area such as O Antonio or... More
