Excellent local cuisine

Another "stumbled upon" restaurant. Great fish dishes. Local atmosphere and plenty of locals eating there. Friendly, efficient service. Excellent value for money. Try the chocolate mousse for desert !

We went there last summer based on tripadvisor ratings, but it was just disappointing. Sardinhas & fried calamari were terrible, as well as the service. Regrettable experience.

The food was disappointing us. The place is very clean but not worth the TripAdvisor certificates If you'd ask me. I had the feeling that some food on our plate was warmed by microwave. 😭

This Cafe'Restaurant is opposite the Infante Sagres Hotel. It has a varied menu and the prices are unbelievably cheap. Make sure you are hungry as the pportions are huge. Good service from the serving staff as well.

Small restaurant slightly off the beaten track offering a good selection of Mediterranean food with an emphasis on seafood. Plush surroundings with the option of eating inside and out. Staff friendly and attentive. Best restaurant in the vicinity.
