Walked along the beach from the pestana hotel and enjoyed a couple of drinks here. The views are fabulous and the staff very good. Didn't have anything to eat but what we saw of the food it looked good.

This restaurant is in the west south corner of the island. It's a great place to have a meal and the food is very good. I would prefer to go with the most traditional food in this restaurant that is the Picado.

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
