Really enjoyed visiting this cafe. The view is gorgeous. The cocktails are delicious and the Sundaes are amazing as well. Very reasonably priced drinks. If only I was back there!

Have been coming to this wonderful cafe over the years and have found the service and staff to be polite and efficient. Everything and more can be expected here, the view is still one of the best. What I like is the fact you do not have to put up with the noise of the old town while enjoying just... More

This is a great place for lunch or a drink, the staff are very friendly, the view over the bay is excellent, the lunch menu was very reasonable, it's a pity they do not do evening meals as we would probably have gone in again

Checked this little gem out after spotting in sitting on the cliff top from the beach. Popped in for a late lunch sunning ourselves on the beach. Cant remember exactly what we ordered but had a mojito each which the lovely Scottish waitress apologised for the delay in making them. But to be honest we didn't notice the time as... More

I went here with some friends and I really enjoyed it! The view out from the terrace overlooks the sea and the fisherman's beach and you can also see the coastlines of Vilamoura to Faro. Also the owners and staff are very friendly and helpful. I definitely recommend it!

This cafe doesnt really even look open from the street where its situated, and this is a bit off the beaten track but it opens up into a really nice spacious indoor bar area and a beautiful terrace area raised up and looking directly on to the beautiful ocean. The food is excellent and beautifully presented and the staff and... More

we found iguana café near the end of our trip which was a shame, it is very well situated for some of the best views in town. The outside seating area is a lovely little sun trap, a great place to enjoy a jug of their great sangria - I recommend the white it was delicious. We did not get... More

I also could not let the comment I have read go without a comment as I think is was extremely unfair. I am a frequent visitor to the Iguana Cafe and it is what it clearly states a Cafe selling light meals and snacks. It is not a Restaurant selling Authentic Portuguese food which clearly the visitors where looking for.... More
