Fantastic find. Right on the beach in a remote location. Lovely fresh seafood, and when we were there live music. Faultless food followed by a walk on the beach, what could be better on a sunny day.

Nice place, right on the beach, meticulously organised. Food was good and came out rapidly, reasonably priced too. Kids food was good, we had fully stacked baguettes served up by small army of waiting staff. It’s rightly a very popular place even though it’s off...More

A fantastic spot with an amazing view. The food is of a good quality, varied menu and reasonably priced. If only the waitresses smiled or were even polite. They just stand there when you enter and don't look at you or even greet you (shame)....More

Good spot for lunch overlooking a great beach. The service was good and the food was at a reasonable price considering they have a monopoly.

Big terrace, with shade and beautiful views. Serving food from 12:00pm until 21:00pm. Advice: always good to book your table, gets busy on lunch and dinner time. Try a orly dinner to see the sunset (the mountain in the end of the beach reflects the beautiful colors so the sun). Very relaxing spot, with soft chilling music. Recommendation: lamb Kebab, grilled fish of the day, Fish & shellfish Cataplanas, Zavial prawns in special garlic sauce. To drink, try the red and white sangria (freshly made). As a desert, Lemon pie in a cup, apple pie and chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream. Cappuccino Zavial and Algarve Coffee (with Medronho). Credit card accepted (but, it's better to take money, some times, because of the old telephone lines it doesn't work). The place is far from everything, surrounded by nature, beautiful views, clean and white sand, cold and light blue sea, relaxing atmosphere. If you wish to relax and recharge, this is the place.
