“Don't stay in this resort & not visit the Clipper, it's a must!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012 via mobile

Fantastic food, fantastic view of the sea but unfortunately had 2 sit inside as no room outside. Staff couldnt do enough for you and ensured you had plenty of drinks. Slightly more expensive but dont mind when the quality is so good.

“Worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012 via mobile

We ate here twice during our stay in Armacao de Pera and the food was excellent. The staff were great and spent time getting to know us, very friendly. Yes, a little expensive, and they do automatically serve and charge for bread and olives...but anytime we were there they always treated us to a free nightcap at the end of the night!

Wine is overpriced, the service okay, but we were automatically billed for bread/olives/carrots at start of meal.

“Not to bad at all”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

Our first main meal whilst away, wasn't to bad, wasn't worth a visit again, but was ok, and food and service was pretty standard and comparitable with all other restaurants bar the really good ones

“Best restaurant in Armacao”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

There were 4 of us that went to The Clipper last week for a thank-you dinner. I can't remember what every one had to eat but I know that my food was excellent - I had the prawns in garlic as a starter and sole meuniere as my main. The dessert was good although a bit on the large size (as were all the desserts it seems from what I observed). The staff were attentive without being over-powering. Everything arrived promptly but at no time did we feel rushed. Would I eat here again? Definitely. Would I recommend The Clipper to friends? Certainly; I couldn't fault it.
