Nice view, not so good food!

A beautiful place to spend some hours. Sea view, but the service... too slow. Many dishes in the tables, to ask or order something I had to go inside were I could see more then 8 staff playing to each other and doing nothing while we just want to eat or drink something.

Is one of the best places, for me, to be, either in Summer or in Winter. Always welcomed by a friendly staff along with good food. The outdoor is TOP - in front of the beach. If you want to have a quick snack and enjoy the sun you use the sunbeds/chairs and place your feet under the sun....priceless when... More

Amazing fresh fish but the worst service I have ever experienced. If you want to wait for nearly 2 hours for your food, in an atmosphere with screaming waiters running around clattering into each other then good luck....

Had a fantastic mojito here and I can't fault the service either. The staff were so helpful making sure we weren't stranded and phoning for a taxi back. Can't comment on the food but I would definitely go here again.

Nice outdoor seating, but a bit too rigid with the rules for the umbrellas. Unless of course you are known by the house, when they gladly ignore them even as they speak to you about it... Anyway, still a nice place to go to.

Beach bar and location is very good but food they serve is nothing very special. I tasted Muquece and i won't recommend this dish for food lovers. Octopus on the other hand was prepared quite well and tasty. It's not so easy to make good octopus so plus for these guys.

Wow what a view!! But the food is totally weird and salads are disaster!! For example we had some salad that had crab imitation in it so not so much fresh from the sea. Anyhow that will be forgotten if the waiters would t be so pushy and trying to almost force you to take the most expensive wine on... More

This it my 5th time in Portugal and I must admit the food in this place was the worst. We had to wait almost 40 minutes for our order. Wish was so salty! Sapateira was the worst I have ever tried. The food was really bad. The service was poor. I have put two points only for the location. The... More

I took a group of about 50 colleagues to Borda D'Agua recently. We had a fantastic evening playing volleyball, eating, drinking and dancing. The food was OK - nothing amazing, but good standard. The location and deco is fantastic. The wait staff were really friendly and fun. They had hired a DJ for us, who really sucked! He was miserable... More
