“Just nice views”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013 via mobile

Poor service and high prices. The only good thing are views since it's right at the beach. No credit cards accepted. Food is at reasonable price, drinks too expensive!!

“Not just for daytime relief from the sun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

It may not have fancy table clothes and doesn't look that much different at night, however this restaurant is worth checking out in the evening.

You'd best book though as its reputation clearly proceeds it and you need to think a couple of days ahead.

It's certainly worth the effort. Good food served well and at reasonable prices.

“Lovely food, lovely staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

Tried to have dinner here twice but did not have a reservation and no tables available on spec. So visited for lunch on the last day of our stay in the Algarve. Seated outside and still busy serving lunch at 3pm. I had salmon, hubbie had chicken and pineapple skewers and son had crispy chicken salad. All perfectly cooked, tasty and well presented. Food takes some time to arrive but as we learnt throughout our visit to Portugal you have to be prepared to wait. I don't think this is a tactic to get you to buy more drinks as they didn't come round pestering you. Great location and staff are really friendly and helpful. One of the waitresses gave us two alternative recommendations when we turned up without the dinner reservation. Worth the very steep hill climb back to the car! 54 euros for 3 of us.

“Excellent venue!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

Called Saturday 3rd August for lunch. Wow! fantastic views, excellent service, good food. A lovely family feel to the place, with large tables etc but also tables for two out on the balcony for that more intimate moment!
This is a place where you can put your feet up, sip Sangria and watch the world go by, ideal.

Would definitely go back given the opportunity.

“Great family dining , sea views & good service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013 via mobile

Great seafood, superb location. Staff are uber-efficient and welcoming with blankets for windier evenings on terrace with hot chocolate ! Terrace great for family meal with kids playing on beach between courses - deal for kids & parents. Fixed prawns in garlic were amazing. Booked on Facebook too - love wired restauranteurs.
