Not my scene!

I had the set menu at €12.95 and it was very good value for money. My husband had the beef stroganoff which was a different version than the usual stroganoff but he said it was excellent. I felt the place lacked atmosphere, and was " a bit over the top", it is after all just a restaurant on the... read more

Staying at Holiday Inn so very handy! Automatically bring out olives, bread and pickled carrots(?) which you get charged for. If you don't want this, reject and you won't then be charged! I had the sea bass fillets with salad which was delicious and husband had steak in a sauce which just came with a few scallop potatoes round edge... More

Ate here twice during a four day break, lunch and dinner. The quality of the food has remained consistently high over the three years we have been coming here. Very clean, eat inside or out. Friendly and attentive staff. We choose from the menu rather than the deal option, good value for the quality of the food.

Tried this lovely restaurant whilst staying at the nearby Holiday inn Algarve ( very good also) and not disappointed. This is the type of old style classic restaurant we seem to have lost in the UK. I hadn't realised how much I missed this quality of restaurant as most fare at home is Pub food style. We all had the... More

The 12 euro meal was great value. Starter, main, desert and bottle of wine if 2 persons shared and well cooked.

One of my favourite restaurants in Armacao de Pera. Restaurant is spotlessly clean, food is lovely - staff are very attentive and helpful. Will definitely return next year

We have dined in this restaurant on several occasions over the years. It reminds me of being on board a classic cruise ship, with their glass decor. All the staff are extremely polite and helpful. The house wine is quite acceptable. The meals are quite nice and there is quite a choice, but they all seem to be served with... More

Situated at the eastern end of this broad avenue overlooking the sea, the Clipper is ideally situated, with a large number of tables al fresco, which in the warm evenings is ideal. The tables are set with crisp white linen and the waiters, friendly and keen to help. The usual 'aperitifs' are offered but not if you choose. The menu... More
