The fish was not fresh and was dry. I ordered and received golden bream, my wife ordered a steak medium and also was too cooked. Everything went wrong, and the disorganized staff

Fantastic food, enriched by the simple and exquisite portoguese style, accompanied by a good selection of local wines, including an excellent vinho de la casa. Warm and friendly welcome and service. The already extensive menu was further adapted to our taste, and especially to the requests of our children. They remained open overtime just for us. The location remains a... More

Been to this restaurant after visiting Sagres and the food was great. I'm Italian so am very fussy about my clams and mussels and they were fresh and delicious. For mains, my husband ordered something which must have been a local speciality - not my sort of thing to look at - but it tasted great, although a bit 'heavy'.... More

I went to this restaurant several times and I was never dissapointed. Excellent typical Portuguese cuisine and always friendly service. I especially LOVE their fresh fish, wine and desserts. They offer a wide variety of fish every day. I especially recommend the local fish, such as the Sardines, the Sea Bream (Dorada) and also try the typical Alrgarve "gooseneck barnacles"... More

Having tried the number 1 restaurant in Sagres (Mum’s) we thought we would go a bit away from the centre of town and try the more traditional Retiro do Pescador (ranked 3 at time of visiting). We were not disappointed and had a really nice (and very reasonably priced) grilled Turbot to share washed down with a pretty good bottle... More

Great choice on sea food. All fresh as it can be. Good to knoe that the portugesean tuna vomes from the Azores and it hand catched. So, not from those boats that make the whole sea empty.

So, fish grilled, mediocre vegetables all chopped up (and wilted broccolli), mediocre dessert. I think many people reviewing this place finish a cocktail and bottle of wine prior to eating their food, which would of course make the experience better. I was thoroughly unimpressed with our 2 grilled fish, the names of which I cannot remember, but they were local... More

Portugal in general was an amazing place to visit for food- but this little restaurant stands out. The group that I was with ordered the Cataplana de Amejoas as well as the Sardines. Both were amazing! The cataplana was chalk full of seafood, both shell fish and fish, and the broth that it was served with was out of this... More

Fantastic little restaurant located just outside Sagres. Great dishes, the grilled squids were the best we've ever got. We paid for a complete meal (appetizers, soup/ main course/dessert/drink) approx 20€/person, including tips. Free wifi also. Definitely worth the visit!
