we were in Porto Santo last week and were recommended this place. It is sincerely superb! They fetched us at the hotel (they were really on time !!) and brought us back after dinner. The place is ideally located at the very end of the island, where you can see how the sea plays with the shore and rocs. Sooo... More

We had dinner here this week and were really pleasantly surprised with the quality of the fish. I had the king prawns and they were really delicious! The views aren't bad either! Best meal I've had on the island during this stay and I would strongly recommend it's worth a visit - especially if you like fish.

Walked for an hour along the beach to find this restaurant! Lovely selection of sea food & fish. Very large portions we could have shared & still had enough to eat! Only down side was slow service, we waited 20 mins to get a drink.

Staying on half board terms at the Quinta Do Sarrado, we forwent our evening meal there and joined some new found holiday friends (one of whom was celebrating a wedding anniversary) after hearing good reports about the Restaurante O Calhetas. We were seated indoors, owing to the coolness of the evening, with menus promptly offered and our meal orders taken.... More

The standard was very good, fresh fish excellent, lots of king prawns as one of the starters. The portions are large and taste lovely. You... More

We visited this restaurant a couple of times during our stay. We had been told that it was more pricey than some on the island but didn't find it overpriced. The menu is varied and portions ample to say the least. We had charming and slick service . WEll worth a visit.

Every year I visit every year and runs well. The food is good the service is attentive. Do not expect to be always at your table and it takes little time, but it will be so in any restaurant in the port saint. But they are extremely friendly and the food is fabulous, I would strongly recommend the "seafood feijoada".... More

After walking a couple of miles along the beach to reach the end of the island we thought we would stop for a drink and check out the menu of Calhetas. Realising it was later than we thought we also decided to stop for some food. Bad decision! Pretty much from the moment we arrived the waiting staff ignored us... More

Stopped to see this end of the island and ended up staying for lunch. The food was good but the service was like in most of the island, a bit slow. I recommend the bolo de caco; the typical garlic bread and the typical fish with garlic and onion. Would return particularly for the fish!
