“Fresh fish overlooking surf beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2015

Having lunch al fresco, with a beach view is on my 'must-do' list when visiting the Algarve. This is the perfect location. We got a table in the sun, overlooking the surfers on the beach below. Drinks arrived quickly, but the food took a long time. We didn't mind, because we were relaxing, but some diners might have been annoyed. The fish was very fresh, as were the salads. The prices are quite high, but worth it for the view.

“An excellent choice! The only place open on the beach on Jan 2nd!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2015

We arrived for a late lunch hoping for a seat on the balcony and a choice of food. We got the lot! It was warm enough to sit out without over-heating! We were told immediately that they had been and still were very busy but they would serve us within half an hour. They did! We were happy to wait and watch. The food was excellent although not cheap, drinks were fine. Good service as well.

“Lovely seaview, food and friendly staff..the best Restaurant in Sagres”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2015

This Restaurant is located in a small bay, close to the beach. Just to start, the location is just beautiful (always better to book in advance, preferably - if sunny - on 1st floor). Regarding food, you´ll have a wide choice. I recommend the fish - really fresh, locally catched - but I had, once, grilled meet, and it was, also, really good. A wide, and good, variety of wines. The staff, specially the lady that owns it, are very friendly. You pay far less than what you get. Strongly recommend it (if you want to have a nice day, take your bathing suit, have lunch - or dinner - and enjoy a wonderful day).

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!
