A great day with the Madcats

We booked for a late lunch on Sunday and were very impressed with the food, service and then the live music. The salads were brilliant and helped to cool down on what was a very hot day. The food is also very reasonable considering the amazing location (€10 for a salad; <€15 for ribs). Staff were... read more

We went here one evening as a party of seven. There was one member of the party who did not find anything that suited him. We asked the waitress if there was anything they could do for him. She said the chef would not do anything for him and also swore at the table which had two children there to... More

Club Nau sits right on the edge of the beach at Ferragudo, a delightful bay near Portimão. I would go there for the view alone; it’s peaceful and almost tropical. Service is friendly and fast, and the prices are very reasonable. We tried the crispy duck starter, very good indeed, and a very generous portion. The rack of spare ribs... More

We have just returned from 10 days in Ferragudo and ate in the beach bar everyday. The service, food, wine and view are fantastic and as a group of six we happily tried just about everything on the menu. All of the staff are really friendly and Joel (not sure of the spelling) can even throw in the odd magic... More

Half way through baking ourselves on the beach we needed food and drink. This looked clean and relaxing. It didn't disappoint, we had a chicken toastie which was fantastic, lovely marinated chicken breast and a great choice. Hamburger was ok, nothing special but not bad. Also had a couple of tapas items which were also good. Friendly quick service, good... More

Dined here several times, both with small children and also adults only and were very taken with it. The beach is lovely, uncrowded and the restaurant is very handy after a hard days sunbathing and swimming. Only downside are the burrs in the sand, but there is a thoughtfully-provided walkway. The menu is not huge, but that's fine. The Clams,... More

Stumbled across Nau whilst on the beach and have been there for lunch twice this week. Best sandwiches ever, great salad and everything on the menu looked appetising, only regret is that with a little one we can't quite spend the evenings drinking wine until dark there. Excellent service.

Every visit since has been excellent and they work hard and deserve all the success they achieve. On this Sunday with my daughter and son in law and 9... More

Popped in for a few drinks and although quiet could see it will be good later in the season. Need to be careful of the cactus bushes that after a couple of drinks can come into play! Lots of cats around that probably need culling! Otherwise a lovely bar with a touch of Thailand beach bars about it.
