4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2014

We lunched here after visiting Cabo Sao Vicente. Reasonably priced menu with good fish choices. Situated overlooking the beach giving a pleasant dining experience.

“Do you ever have that uneasy feeling when....”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2014 via mobile

.... When the Trip Advisor logo on the resto door is decidedly faded looking?.... We are not fussy folks .... We are satisfied with good service,.... decent food ,,,, at at a fair price and ok wine is all it takes to please.... So let's talk positive ... Service was a decent.... We asked for the house Rose.... To describe it as awful would be generous (it was essentially vinegar and had obviously sat out for an extended period.... And believe me this is not snobbish) ....but to their credit the servers did not blink in the slightest or for that matter seemed surprised when we asked for something else....they obliged quickly. Food for the area decent but for the price? You have to be kidding us! Pretty much $25 to $ 35 euro a single fish product? Vegetable or anything else separate at additional cost. The location is terrific which no doubt brings in many folks but should they wish to remain in business they will have to be realistic. We ended up there because we did not read Trip Advisor reviews in advance and were darned hungry. The further positive? The beach below the resto was amazing and throughly enjoyable!

“For the view only”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2014

Visited a decade ago, and fondly remembered the situation - lovely views along the bay and out to sea. Failed to check TA.

For lunch had grilled white fish, which we later learned was of unknown type having been bought frozen, and seabass. Sides extra. Unknown fish was ok but overpriced. Seabass in addition to being overpriced had been grilled sliced open (not the only restaurant to do this) which made it a little dry and harder to fillet. The seabass was €16 plus sides. Two days later we had far nicer seabass in Lagos at €8.50 including sides, but no view.

3 stars is generous and reflects the plus of the view.

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2014

Visited on a Saturday night and the warning bells should have sounded when there were only 3 other people in the restaurant. On reviewing the menu we discovered that whilst the mains are priced slightly above other similar restaurants in Sagres, this doesn't include side dishes, each of which is extra! Oh well, perhaps we would be wowed by the food?

Our sardines and Portuguese style steak arrived but the restaurant has mixed up our sides, to quizzical looks when we complained. Both dishes were ok but no more.

To top off the experience, when the bill arrived we'd been charges €4 each for the couvert... even though we'd only had bread and butter!

In short, this restaurant is trading off it's location with views of the beach, which of course is irrelevant on a dark evening. Avoid.
