“A hidden gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

The best sea bass in Portugal. Fantastic friendly restaurant, great food, sea view (bring a jumper can get chilly) and Nico the dog whom resembles a cuddly black hyena! Stayed at CS Rafeal Suite hotel but ate here regularly. Hosts are superb as is the service. Good value and highly recommended.

“Fun family friendly restaurant in nice location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2012

A fun family friendly place. Service is reasonably prompt. Food is good. Wine selection is good and the complimentary glasses of port even better!
The seating on the upper balcony gives you some lovely sea views but can get a bit blustery when the wind gets up. Bring a cardigan or scarf!
We went twice during our short break and loved the dog- Niko!

“Picturesque”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2012

Praia Grande at Sao Rafael is a beautiful sandy beach in a very picturesque setting with dramatic cliffs providing a stunning backdrop and wonderful photo opportunity. The walk down has been graded to make it quite easy.

“Great Food, Great Wine. Eduardo is a Gent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2011

Short and sharp. Food is really good. Eduardo the owner only stocks Portuguese wines and all are brilliant. His knowledge is second to none. Views and atmosphere from the outdoor area is stunning.Very enjoyable whether for a light lunch or a more substantial evening meal

“FANTASTIC TIME AT PRAIA GRANDE!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2011

We initially dropped on this restaurant at lunch time on the first day of our holiday and loved the setting and the food. Went back again for a evening meal to celebrate a birthday and were not disappointed. Restaurant was full - food fantastic - wonderful service and atmosphere. Very good value for money - around £25 a head for two courses, side orders and wine.
