Good but Expensive

We had been recommended to go here, otherwise would not have chosen it from the look of its exterior. It is a big restaurant on the road parallel to but away from the beach, and we were the only diners. Good choice of fish which we were able to inspect before they were cooked. Fish was excellent... read more

We only discovered this little gem a an hour before flying home and wish we would have had the time for the full boatload of seafood special platter on offer, as it was the crab pat'e in the shell and prawns in garlic were great. Must return some day.

I hope you know what I mean. This place is not cheap (not ultrageus expensive either) but is definitely one of the best restaurants in Algarve. Awesome perfect cooked food makes drive so erimes a couple of miles to enjoy it. A must to visit if you love simple things in life like me....

We were a party of 4 with two babies and arrived around 3.15 pm for Easter lunch. At the door we've noticed that we were not that welcomed but decided to stay in the windowed balcony. Has we were about to seat the waiter informed that the baby chairs could only used inside the restaurant, we got up and started... More

Great food here.Not too expensive,as far as seafood restaurants go.Bill came to 55 euros for 2 people,but that included drinks,bread,olives etc.Wife had stuffed crab,and I had a salmon fillet the size of a small house brick.Needless to say,she couldn`t finish it,and the waiter boxed the crab up,and she had it the next day for lunch.

I live in Portugal and have visited this restaurant twice now. It is grossly overpriced, an example being that they charge €17.50 for a bottle of white Planalto wine, which would normally be about €12.50 in a restaurant. €3 for a bottle of water, €4 for a small basket of bread, €5 for a few slices of Goats cheese, and...

Excellent food and great service. The seafood is amazing, and the fresh fish selection they have is great. We look forward to go to Portugal again as this restaurant is enjoyed by all the family. Thumbs up guys!!!!! Hope to go back soon.

Our second night in Portugal and we dined here on the recommendation of our hotel. The food (octapus salad, vegetable soup and a mixed fish grill) was wonderful but the service was distinctly unfriendly and rushed. The restaurant was no more than half full but dishes were delivered and cleared away with indecent haste and no friendly smiles. Our question... More

The restaurant looks unassuming and doesn't have a charming exterior or interior or even a very good location, with a road instead of beach frontage. The beach is just a minute's walk away though. There are tanks of fish and lobster at the front, as well as posters of the menu. The food was amazing - we had a seafood... More

We'd been here before and had the Seafood that comes in it's own fishing boat. So, this time we decided to try the more standard seafood dishes on the menu, my wife having a massive salmon fillet and I tried the Dorado or sea bream, neither of which disappointed. The price is set similar to other similar restaurants in the... More
