A great place for a drink or a meal with something happening every night throughout the year. A well run place open all year.

You have to stop off at O Artista, The staff and food are amazing. We ate there 2 nights out of the 6 we stayed. I would have ate there more only the others in my party wanted to try some other placed. The sea food is so Fresh and there steaks are simply amazing.

There's nothing we disliked about O Artista. The food was good the service lovely. On days when you didn't want to go too far it was there! It was sooo convenient. See my review on Lius's bar (next door).

Service was cheesy as, as was the sax player (not good) who came around trying to serenade you at your table, we couldn't keep a straight face. Our... More

We stopped for a nightcap and to listen to the live music on Thursday -good atmosphere. We've come back tonight to sample the food. Excellent!!! Nice, helpful staff too. I had the monkfish kebab and Caroline had the lamb chops - both excellent. We'll be back before our holiday ends.
