Friendly but slow service and average food

We were warmly welcomed and quickly seated but the food was a long time coming. The Cataplana looked good but the meat platter was boring and the steak was tough, with no sauces. The restaurant has a good location next to the Marina but the prices are higher than elsewhere and the food not as good... read more

We had a lovely meal served cataplana for our group of 50. Service was excellent and the food delicious. The view of the marina is as great as the food.

Very disappointed with my visit, should have read the reviews before visiting. The restaurant was very busy but with a good number of staff service should have been better. Didn't have my first choice of wine, my wife had Fried Fish and Bananas very sloppy and not well cooked, just as we were leaving the owner who had been sitting... More

Four of us are here in January 2015 and I was very disappointed. The steaks wer tough and grisly, my travelling companions lamb was inedible. Has to be the worst dining experience I have had in the algarve.

Had table for 8 and food was okay. In honesty we found better - prices, service and quality. I did enjoy the food but we had a very long wait c 1 1/2 hours and cataplana was c 45 Euros.

Took my partner to the mariscada for lunch we had a steak sandwich each and a plate of chips to share. The bill was 18.50€ including 2 cokes. The sandwiches were nice and the bread was homemade. The restaurant is located on the marina and we had a lovely view whilst we ate.

Simply the best place to eat with good and always fresh food. The absolute pleasure of a fresh meal prepared on order, on the moment. Thank you.

Started with the oysters, followed by the Picanha steak. Very tasty. Half bottle of white & half bottle of red, did the trick to compliment the starter & main. Good service. Very pleasant. Will definitely go back!

Plenty of choice on the menu, I chose Garlic mushrooms to start and Portuegese Steak with potatoes, very nice although slightly salty with the bacon topping. Asked waiter to recommend a fruity wine, the one chosen was very nice and not pricey either about 15E so all in all a nice meal, even a few locals in, so always a... More
