Description: Izzy's offers you the ultimate beach bar experience. Set right on the beach at Vale Do Garrao, in the heart of the Algarve's Golden Triangle, as a destination restaurant, there is nothing to compare. With amazing panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean, a laid back atmosphere, great food and friendly service, this is a memorable place. Customers return time and time again to soak up the atmosphere and order their favourite dishes. You can enjoy the Izzy's experience at lunch, dinner or just for drinks. Sundowners at Izzy's are something to savour! Live music is played on Saturday and Sunday afternoons - making it a magical place to relax at the weekend. The Izzy's menu is a clever blend of fish and seafood specialties and much loved Portuguese and International cuisine. The beach side location and imaginative kids menu, also makes Izzy's a great family experience.

“Still a good beachside place to have a drink, reasonable prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2014

Have visited Izzy's over a number of years in January. This year it provided a watering hole for two or three visits. We were disappointed with the Sauvignon Blanc. The ribs were good but the meat did not fall off the bone like I like. The coffee and beer was wonderful. They have continued to improve the décor and the atmosphere is still very good. My wife loved the house Rose but we were disappointed with the response from the waitress when we asked what it was, she said, "I don't know" and couldn't be bothered to find out! They need to up their game for me.

“Great spot for lunch overlooking the beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2014

Went here on a January lunchtime, the sun was shining and we sat outside on the terrace. Had a very nice tuna salad and chicken piri-piri with African rice, both were very good. Not as upmarket as some of the other beach restaurants nearby but a more rustic restaurant, and delightful. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and we will return.

“Good but not excellent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2013

A good beachside restaurant in Dunas Dourados but it could have been better. The food was good but not great, the service good but not great, the value was good but not great. The best thing about Izzys was the view. We only wanted a snacky lunch and for that Izzys was fine but I think they think they are a cut above that which they are.

“Fabulous location overlooking Atlantic sea.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2013 via mobile

We were delighted to find Issy's open in January. Quiet but not empty we got a table by the window. Eating plates of fresh sardines and huge prawns in the sun at New Year is unbeatable.
