Restaurant O Telheiro do Infante could be one of the most exciting restaurants on the Iberian peninsula. A impeccable white beach, fresh but cristalline seawater and all together surrounded by impressive cliffs and rocks. But o Telheiro do Infante missed this unique opportunity, a gift of nature, painfully. It is not only the quality that fails but the total concepcion... More

Just an amazing place to put a restaurant in the cliff face overlooking the small bay surrounded by cliffs. The food was excellent and staff friendly and attentive. Reasonably priced although I did baulk at the lobster at 85 euros ! Well worth a visit

The location of the hotel affords a beautiful spot for lunch, with marvellous views particularly across the bay toward the fortress of Sagres. While seemingly somewhat sheltered in the bay, it was quite windy - borderline to be outside. Food was rather average, some good, some not so. Service was hopelessly slow. There seemed adequate staff, but little organization and... More

I found the whole restaurant really terrible. The wine was watery, the soup was really old, the 'hamburgers' with mushroom were uneatable. Really horrible. I was sick during the rest of the day, and night. The whole restaurant smelled bad, nothing was fresh. Really a big disappointment at such a great spot. The owners should be forced to eat that...

Visited out of season but there were a few diners so werent put off. Service was slow. We waited about 10 minutes for our drink order. Waitress was surly. Drinks were so slow to come causing my 8 year old to say how bad the service was. Felt that the waiting staff were doing us a favour the whole time... More

We did not get to eat here due to Xmas closures but the location overlooking the beach is first class and the large dining room looked luxurious and well equipped. We had coffee on the terrace at 11am and 2-3 couples were eating lunch when we left. It does all look very nice. I would think this is a 'typical... More

Sit and watch the surfers and enjoy some good sea food. All the food was good but quite pricy for Portugal as was the wine. In saying this, still worth a visit but just check the prices before you order, as bread is an extra! Easy parking but as the restaurant is on the first floor, access is difficult for... More

We chose this restaurant for its beach view. Parking is down a rather steep hill from the road. The terrace of the restaurant has a great view, especially if it is not too windy. Service was slow and error prone. The menu was translated into English and it appeared that the server understood basic English but perhaps we should have... More

Had lunch here today during a trip to the old fort. Great view of the beach from the outdoor dining area. We both had soups - chilly day. Both were very good. Service was a little slow but the allowed us to enjoy the wonderful setting even more!

We had lunch in the restaurant and enjoyed the atmosphere and attentive,friendly service from the staff combined with great food. Clearly a family run restaurant committed to providing a great experience.
