We had a dinner here. Although there was only 1 other couple in the staff were very nice and the food was good. Lacked a little atmosphere because of the lack of people but that wasn't the restaurant's fault. We would go back to this venue to eat

We had dinner several times there and each time was fantastic! Food is very fresh and tasty. Espada with passion fruit, bananas was perfect! And grilled sardines were also very good. Highly recommend this restaurant if you want to eat something really tasty.

This place suffers from 3 weaknesses: poor language skills, slow or absent service and inconsistent food. These are all easily solvable and if solved this is capable of becoming a first class place.

We've had lunch here one. My boyfriend had the tuna steak. It was totally overcooked. What a pity. My omelette was ok. I don't recommend this place... I did like the view though.

Such an amazing view from the terrace of this restaurant! We arrived when the sun was behind clouds and the terrace was almost completely empty. We chose an exposed table right in the corner which afforded he best views of the rocks, bays, pools, crashing waves and sea that changed colour from deep blue to shining turquoise with white spray....

Get a table outside and you will be rewarded with great views over the pools and out to sea. Only problem I would offer is the tables being small - there were 4 of us, and the table would be better for only 2. That's fine though, and you can get around it for the views. The food was great... More

Restaurant with very nice view to the ocean and big portions, but most of all we had a really delicious Dorado, the best we had in one week. Service was probably better in our case as we we came late and were the only group. They also invited us to a bottle of wine.

To enjoy this place you should arrive after the lunch rush. In the early afternoon, the setting is near perfect. The view over the lava pool lido is the best you can get in town. Preferably you should sit outside, because the interior is a bit dated - to say the least. The whole place is in desperate need of... More

Enjoyed a large plate of scabbard filet in mushroom sauce with chips, rice and vegetables whilst enjoying the best view available from the large terrace over the natural swimming pools of Porto Muniz. Worth the visit!

I saw the other feedback before lunch but I don't take care about the people that speak dishes' dimensions... They are really big!!! The quality is good and probably just one starter dish could be enough for a summer lunch!
