Not sure what all the hype is about. It was okay, service okay, food okay, but just okay. The restaurant was very busy, and very noisy. The staff seemed a bit too stressed to be attentive. The food was presented beautifully, as is the building itself, but the dining experience didn't live up to the reviews we had read. Sadly... More

The atmosphere is wonderful, the food is exceptional and the service couldn't have been better - despite being a group of 8, all meals were served at the same time. We were made to feel incredibly special, can't fault the whole experience. Thank you very much!

I visited this restaurant with my boyfriend last week. I cannot find a bad thing to say about this place. It is simply amazing. The location is great - if you get there at the right time and sit outside, you can watch the sun set whilst you eat. It's breathtaking. The food is amazing - we ordered chicken curry... More

We visited this restaurant as a family twice during our stay in the area. On both occasions we booked beforehand and were pleased we did as the restaurant got very busy as the night went on. They had run out of one of their key steak dishes but we were not informed of this until the time of ordering and... More

Well I would like to tell you about the restaurant and the food, but we never actually got to experience it!. A party of 8 adults, we arrived and waited in the doorway for 20 minutes without being acknowledged in any way. The manager and waitresses passed us several times, but nobody spoke to us to ask if we had... More

This is definitely a restaurant worth finding as this was rated the best dining experience of our trip so far. From entering this modern stylish establishment the service was professional, friendly & attentive and the menu is well thought out and it's nice to go somewhere where you have to really deliberate over which dishes to choose. All our food... More

A fantastic venue. Superb food and the staff couldn't be more helpful. Comes highly recommended and would most definitely return. A truly wonderful end to a very special holiday in the Algarve!
