A sun terrace to relax in & view the ocean

Well worth a visit, good for lunch snacks & refreshments, all tables on the terrace have fabulous views, Pass the afternoon boat watching as it's located at the cliff edge between the beach & the marina, Scottish & Portugese owned & operated.

We walked a good few miles to find this place and weren't disappointed. The views are first class and the cafe has a cosy, homely feel. The type of place you stay for a lingering lunch or a long afternoon drink. The menu is fairly basic but the bruschetta's we ordered were fresh and tasty. Simple but well done. It's... More

well situated restaurant, overlooking and high above Fisherman's Beach. Very friendly and warm welcome. Only stayed for lunch and called in on another couple of occasions for a Crepe Top Up (ha ha), great find, wonderful people and reasonably priced.

Thought we'd pay Iguana a visit after reading the reviews.... and we weren't disappointed! Beautiful view, friendly staff and the crepe and sundae were to die for. Definitely paying them another visit! Highly recommended.

Lovely cocktails, great lunch options including a veggie quorn burger. Some tapas options too. Really reasonable prices as well. The location is great with seating outside overlooking the sea. A must visit.

Nice food, don't prepare yourself to be blown away but has a nice short menu of meals and snacks that are reasonably priced. Also serves drinks including Magners pint bottles, Super bock etc. The best reason to visit here is to take in the great views from their terrace while you enjoy your lunch. Very relaxing atmosphere, staff are English... More

Stopped here on our way back from a boat trip/the marina. Amazing views over to fishermans beach. Great café serving great crepes and sundaes!(theres plenty of other snacks on the menu but we only had the crepes and a sundae). Great service and not rushed either! Definitely recommend a visit here.
