I ate with my party of 13 recently and have to say it was an appalling experience. It started well, expectations were high given the resorts reviews and on first impression, all seemed well. The restaurant was stylish, the serving staff polite and efficient, even offered us free cocktails as our table wasn't ready. We sipped our drinks and took... More

Ate at As Dunas last night.table booked for my family of 13 for 8pm but on arrival the table was not available. We were offered complimentary drinks including cocktails. Ummmm so far so good. The staff certainly know how to treat their customers. We finally got our food just before 10pm and it was nothing special for the overpriced menu.What... More

First, the lovely views and location make the restaurant a lovely backdrop for a fabulous meal. The martinhal beach is such a lovely setting. The service is a bit slow but know that the resort caters to families so you will have lots of children around you. The good thing is that children can enjoy the outdoor play area if... More

Packed with families and full of kids crying out loud, this high end resort restaurant, with a great location, throws good food and a pleasant service. With a bit of luck one can have a remarkable experience, being so well built and decorated it's a pitty the core business of the resort it's not going DINKY.

We've been coming to As Dunas for the past 3 years and always loved the kid-friendly, good food and seaside atmosphere. But they've built a solid roof and glass wall all around the terrace, making it feel like you are eating in an airless greenhouse. Such a shame, it was so lovely and unique.

Thank you for your review. Regarding your comment about our new glass windows and roof in As Dunas we would like to inform you that this is fact a retractable roof and the doors open back fully in the summer months. Our reason for installing these extras to the restaurant was to make full use of this wonderful location with... More

Service was very good - almost over eager. Local fresh fish was excellent - as one would hope given the location. Would probably have eaten here more than once if prices were more in line wiith other options outside of the resort.

Very nice atmosphere with play area in front for kids. Super child friendly with average service. We expected the food to be amazing although we were very disappointed. Sea side restaurant in a 5* resort one would expect to be blown away. Anyhow, I can't recommend this to anyone as a great seafood restaurant. The fish and shellfish overcooked and... More

We last visited this restaurant 3 years ago and it was just as great 3 years on. The fresh seafood was fabulous but this time what made it stand out was the service which was fantastic!

Everything at Martinhal is focused on the family and this place is another great example. A area indoors for children to play with supervision as well as a play area outside. The food was good, although the fresh fish was costly compared to Sagres. We had the clam and pork stew which was excellent and would have fed 3.

Visited for last night of our holiday for a meal with our kids. Although service can be a bit slow, found food to be very nice. Kids are treated well too, even had a staff member there to entertain them. Would very much recommend it.
