In a wonderful situation literally overlooking Olhos D'Agua beach we have found this to be a great place to eat, the staff remembered us last year from our previous years trip. We called again this year but it was being renovated so can't comment on the final work being done but hopefully we can try again next year.

We visited based on an excellent meal we had last year at La Cigale. This just didn't live up to the memories. The view was as good but the food was just not up to scratch - the Piri-Piri chicken was served last year with a delicious dressed salad, golden fries and had a taste that was out of this... More

Wonderfully situated premises with great views of the beach area, snack food ok and not over priced but apart from the lovely John (ex Passaro Azul) the service could be more welcoming and a bit friendlier. Lacks a bit of ambiance.

Go elsewhere - unless you are hell bent on the views! Having read the reviews I knew that it might be a bit mixed and my visit one evening confirmed it. Very abrupt, grumpy waiter - seemed so bored and fed up - almost that you were an inconvenience to him - we ordered starters, a bottle of average wine... More

This reataurents has a lovely situation overlooking the sea. Not particular large but seems to have a nice menu. Only had a snack lunch but the food was really nice and a reasonable price. Service just ok but most staff seemed to have long faces, not the best when on holiday but everyone is entitled to an off day. Would... More

Looking right over the beach this restaurant is in a prime position. Great seafood choice of food and also provides snacks and children's menu. A tad on the expensive side but this is to be expected due to its position.

This is right on the beach, so you can hear the waves as you enjoy your meal. The staff were nice and the food lovely. We ate here twice on our holiday.
