Very good food, fresh cooked so a little wait. Very friendly helpful staff. Can be a bit expensive. Seating outside or in, very near the road so can be a bit off putting, good decoration inside. Most important, very clean.

We passed this restaurant several times before deciding to try it. To be honest we found it over priced, with small portions & we don't eat a lot ! Staff not brilliant when they discovered that we weren't going to spend loads of money on wine ect.

They offer you olives, and bread as you take your seat, beware it's not free, just say no thanks if not required. Lovely place

We visited with kids, had our nicest meal of the holiday. Kids menu and good selection of drinks. Only problem is the add ons. Kids meals are €6-7 for fish fingers and chips, fine, at least they have a kids choice unlike most on the front. It's just the bread and Olives, you don't ask for them, they arrive, then... More

We've eaten here twice and have been very happy with the food and the friendly service. The grilled fish, the clams and the garlic prawns are very good and the options for the non-fish eater are decent too. They've bent over backwards to make the kids happy (including collecting all the clam shells in a bag for our daughters to... More

My husband and I are just home from a weeks holidays and dined twice in The Clipper. The king prawn in garlic starter is amazing and the steaks were divine. The only disadvantage is you can wait a while for service esp if restaurant is busy and it is a little over priced in comparison to other eateries in the... More

We went to this restaurant once during our 9 day stay in Armacao de Pera. We thought the food (and wine) to be quite good (and it was) but later in the week we realized that there are other places that will serve you a meal for 30% less with minimum the same quality. The Clipper is however a very... More
