“Great food, company, view and wine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2014

The fish soup was very good, well seasoned and rich. The main course of sea base cooked with shrimp sauce, came with roasted veg and coriander rice, 4 of the 6 of us had this. The conclusion of all four of us was 10 out of 10. The staff were very efficient and attentive when required. Would strongly recommend that if you are in this area give the place a ring and book a table.

“Excellent seafood with a terrific view!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

This restaurant lies on the edge of the cliffs with panorama view of the Atlantic ocean. We had a late dinner here, experiencing the beautful sunset accompanied by excellent seafood and wine. Lobster, Seabass, Tiger Prawns... very, very good! Would recommend a visit!

“Awesome setting, fantastic food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2014

This is a real find and you know it the moment you walk in the door. A very fresh fish of the day selection plus a range of shellfish. The terrace looks over the ocean and is sheltered from the wind. Staff were extremely pleasant and friendly. The clams were sublime as was the pata negra with a few oysters on the side for good measure. Steamed whole sea bass was the best fish we have had in Portugal washed down with Carmo white from the Douro. A total pleasure and so much so we are going back tomorrow! The terrace was full but we were the only non- Portuguese which I took to be a locals vote of confidence.

“Superb”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2014

I was looking fora restaurant near the hitel I'm stayingin. Thus, this was a really happy occasion that I get to tis restaurant. Sadly, I couldn't enjoy the view - it was really foggy - but waier and meal were worth all the money (yes, it is probably will be the priciest meal I've had during this holidays, but fare not as pricey as some places I've eaten in).
Well, this is probably will be the highest review I'll give for a restaurant ever. It was really good combination - a "straight forward" grilled fish like I love complimented by the rest.
As Germans say, "gerne wieder" - with pleasure again.
