“Wonderful sunny lunch on the shortest day!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2013

After a lovely walk along the beach on Faro island we decided to stop for a late lunch. The setting is fantastic, right on the beach. THE place to be on the shortest day of the year. We had a great lunch, the dourada, batatas braves and calamari were great. So was the non alcoholic capairinha. We'll definitely return when we're back in the Algarve.

“Great Restaurant & Stunning setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

On a 5 day break to the Algarve last week we visited this beach bar 3 times for lunch it is stunning whether you just want a sandwich or a lazy lunch with Tapas & Wine this is the place to go! The stunning setting literally requires just one step and you are on the beach! The staff are great & friendly and the food is just great! A must try as most think Faro is just an airport!

“Sun, sea and great burgers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

My buddy picked me up at the airport and this was the first stop on the way to the villa. I'm not fan of burgers but I must admit that this one was pretty good. Perhaps the great view of the beach and relaxed atmosphere had something to do with it. It's now on my list of lunchtime restaurants.

“Location, location, location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

We tried this restaurant after making a swift exit from O Costa (see our review) as it was just across the road. The food is good, if not ground-breaking, but you really come for the location. You could hardly get any closer to the beach without being on it. There's a large inside area if the weather isn't great, but pick a day when the sun is shining or the surf is up, and this makes a great last-stop before the airport - or first-stop if you're picking up guests who want to see the sea within minutes of landing. The pizza and the steak we had were good, although the Thai noodles need some work. Friendly service, a nice bottle of wine, and what more could you ask for from a very welcome find. It's not a beach we would normaly go to for a day out, but this could be our new airport pit-stop.
