The restaurant only opens for dinner and it is recommended to book earlier. The food was tasty and well presented. We had a moonfish fillet with sauteed potatoes and cooked vegetables. For dessert we ordered an apple pie with a vanilla ice cream which was pretty good. To drink we asked for house wine. So, at the end we paid... More

The food at this restaurant is very good , the ambience is excellent and Paulo the owner is very attentive but not overbearing. We have been many times and the quality is consistent. The house wine is so good there is no point ordering a more expensive type.

Four of us went to Agua na Boca to help celebrate my wife's birthday. We could not have chosen a better place --- ambiance was great, service was first class and meals as good as we have ever had anywhere. The lamb was superb, the chicken was scrumptious and the fish dishes were excellent. Moderately priced and very good value.... More

Paulo the owner and his wife Irina have worked hard to make this one of the finest restaurants in the Western Algarve. Since opening in 2008, their aim has been for "excellence" - they have certainly achieved this. The addition of glass walling to the terrace makes eating in the cooler months enjoyable and warm. We have a holiday home... More

Quite simply one of my favourite restaurants in the world - the highlight of our annual holiday to Burgau We return year after year, making at least 2 dinner visits in an 11 night holiday, as we love it so much. The food is never less than fantastic; the welcome from Paulo and his well-trained, but always friendly team, is... More

We have been going to the region for 12 years now and have a place in Almadena so tend not to travel out this way too much. We looked for new places and used TA to find Agua na Boca as the most recommended place. Rang first night but fully booked so made reservation for next night. The place is... More

Our second visit this year. This time it was Linda's birthday so we thought we'd push the boat out. Every time a winner here. Including champagne, the bill for 4 came to €232. This is a popular spot and with good reason, so make sure you book well in advance particularly in the tourist season.
