what a view

Lovely setting with good honest fish dishes. The Cataplana is outstanding, as is the service provided by the helpful courteous waiters. The view is simply wonderful.

We had a couple of dodgy experiences with Portuguese beach restaurants - either being served bad food, or being overcharged, or both. With its stunning cliff-top location overlooking Praia do Benagil, we were worried this would be the same. My grilled sardines were the best I've ever had - fresh, simple, and delicious.

We went here for our first night and it was so good we went back again for our last night. Cataplana was excellent, as were the shrimps in garlic. Our waitress was lovely, took photos for us and was generally cheerful and helpful. Highly recommended, great views too.

Great food with good service. We had lunch and chose the Cataplana for two which was superb - filling and very tasty. Very informal with great sea views. Not expensive and to be recommended.

On the average this can be a very good little restaurant if the 'cook of the day' is in the mood. Fish is somewhat overcharged. I am always somewhat hesitant to say anything more for you to be disappointed.

Always ask for prize of fish, and above all check weight. They look nice but will treat you as a rich and ignorant tourist.

This restaurant looks like a snack bar but don't be misled as they serve very good food at reasonable prices. It overlooks Benagil Beach. We stopped here on two occasions. The first time we had their Tapas for lunch which was very good. The 2nd time four of us had a full blown 3 course lunch which was excellent. Like... More
