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

This is the smartest restaurant in Armacao de Pera, based on our experiences from various visits over the years - difficult to understand why so many very basic establishments have a higher ranking. Tables are beautifully set, with linen, cutley and glasses all perfect. The staff are very attentive, and delighted to advise on the fairly extensive menu. Food quality... More

We ate here at lunchtime , the service and food were very good. We went in the evening a few days later, . The service was poor and we were rushed, I had the same main course. It was awful my dish was sloppy! We didn't go back

We ate there twice while on holiday, and were pleased with both the servings size and the quality of the dishes we ordered. Sat outside both times, and since we were travelling with a child, we went to eat before the big rush started at around 20:00 .. But that also meant that some of the waiters apparently had nothing...
