“Excellent Breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

We visited this restaurant a few times for lunch and had the set menus available daily very good value for money. It was my fiftieth birthday whilst in the Algarve, my husband arranged a surprise Champagne breakfast for 25 people, the food and service were excellent the views to die for all in all a very good choice.

“Great for some things...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

Hot chocolate and a triple sec whilst listening to some Jazz... perfect. Snack food is quite good, but I felt that the larger meals were not so great. However, the ambience and service makes up for the negatives.

“Nothing Special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

Starters consisted of prawn cocktail. Nice but very tiny portions for over £8 euros a portion. If you'd received this portion in the UK, comments would have been made to the ownership. cant understand this when in a country that professes a rich seafood culture. Mains were swordfish and chicken piri piri. Swordfish was fine although vegetables were on the sparse side. Chicken nice but had to order extra portion of fries as scant portion arrived. We did however receive the usual complimentary thimbleful of port at the end of the meal. So, meal satisfactory, but lacked something and a little overpriced for what we received. felt a little disappointed when we left.

“Great breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Lovely place with wonderful sea views. The owner, who also owns Forteleza, works tirelessly offering daily specials, Great friendly staff too. Lovely place to have good value breakfast and people watch across the gorgeous beach. Well worth a visits. Open in low season too.

“Great location but food average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

A superb location overlooking the beach but the service and food lets it down slightly. It is probably Ok for lunch and breakfast but dinner let it down, maybe because this was a quite time of the year
