Delicious sea food and family friendly staff

We stayed at the Martinhal resort where this restaurant is located. The restaurant was pretty much our daily lunch place. Gorgeous views, excellent food - especially the sea food, very family friendly place.

Great Restaurant with nice fish dishes. ( big assortment of fresh fish ) They also have a kiddy service for the little ones so that you can enjoy your dinner while your Son or Daughter is playing in the kids corner.

A lovely restaurant part of the Martinhal hotel, it caters for both adults and kids. The menu is extensive and focuses on freshly caught fish while also offering an extensive menu for kids, which is even broken down in to age recommended categories. Each table has a high chair, and there is also a kids corner for the children to... More

We've now tried this restaurant twice and both times, the food was ok - really just ok, when it should have been fabulous fresh fish. We had the same waiter both nights - completely hopeless - from getting our order wrong, repeatedly, not bringing our drinks, needing multiple reminders to bring water, etc etc. dinner out shouldn't be that hard

Ventured a few times during stay, both for lunch and dinner. Fish is excellent, albeit menu is quite limited, especially on the starters side.

A very nice restaurant overlooking the hotel pool and beach. Relaxed and friendly, perfect for a glass of vino and a light lunch after an early morning start and long flight from the UK.

My wife unawarely ordered seafood risotto for her, and the waiter did not tell her that it was for two people minimum, so i proceeded to order "cataplana of fish"; so essentially we ordere for 3 adults and the waiter...
