“Absolutely amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

This was undoubtedly the best fish restaurant I visited whilst staying in Portugal. The menu selection is vast and it's brilliant being able to see your fish of choice cooked on the barbeque out front! The staff were wonderful as well, extremely friendly, and spoke english as well as the local language. I really enjoyed my meal at this place and would definitely recommend it to anyone in the area!!!

“FANTASTIC FOOD AND SERVICE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

We have eaten the best food in Portugal in this restaurant, and we live here and speak Portuguese. Steaks cooked to perfection garnished with huge prawns and lovely vegetables. Excellent service with no pressure and all the family welcome. Indoor and outdoor facilities. English spoken. A wide choice in the bar.

“A glorious evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

What a discovery to find this delightful restaurant overlooking the bay in Ferragudo. The atmosphere and view were breathtaking and it was a pleasure to sample real Portuguese food. I opted for the tomato and egg appetiser - it was absolutely delicious and the cataplana was so different and so tasty. Can't wait to go back.

Tripadvisor led us to this restaurant in the lovely town of Ferragudo. Excellent service and delicious meals. We had garlic prawns to start then the monkfish and prawn rice. Both were delicious!
