We found this café on the approach to the beach and decided to give it a go. We ordered an orange juice which was freshly squeezed and my partner had a coffee choc milkshake, drinks were fantastic. The waitress was English and the barman was Portuguese, they were both able to give us masses of local information and willing to.... More

We return again and again to the friendliest welcome, and the best breakfasts on the Algarve. Brenda and Eric always look after you and make you feel special. If you drop in for lunch, we highly recommend their seriously good club sandwiches, followed by a great coffee, and a really generous Maceira brandy! We will be back!! ( Many times... More

The barman was rude and the owner obnoxious. The bar itself was clean and seemed well equipped and reasonably new. I'm sure you'd be able to get a copy of the sun there and a full english!

Having been here a few years back and had a good experience I thought I'd visit again. Ordered a variety of sandwiches which might as well just have been bread and butter. Each were sprinkled with either tuna or chicken in a nice fluffy roll making them practically empty. Poor value for money
