The view from this restaurant is amazing! The food was fine, as were the wines. The service was good to start with but the waiters tend to forget you're there after a while. We had to ask for our coffees twice and the bill twice.

Went with my family of 6, not a lot to choose from on the menu. Apparently it used to be the best restaurant but it's clearly outdated and think it needs to be refreshed! Quite overpriced in my opinion and probably wouldn't go back.

The restaurant La Cigale is a beautiful setting overlooking the sea. We had dinner early so we had a good choice of tables. The food was excellent, and the... More

We went to this restaurant as it was right on the beach and the views were amazing. The price was a little high but the food was delicious and worth every penny as was the drinks, this was the only place I found that did a blue lagoon that was made with real lemon juice it cost €5.75 but again...

This used to be the best place in this pleasant fishing village. The location is still a main attraction but the food is really only average with the smallest "couvert " we have had anywhere in Portugal. We had the fish cataplana which was fine but nothing special and quite expensive. This is one of those places which sells the... More

Good location overlooking the beach. Most of the staff were friendly and pleasant. Fish was very good and crab well presented. More expensive than other restaurants in the area, probably because of location. Would probably return.

The location of this place is incredible, sit on the terrace with panoramic views across to Vilamoura. I had fresh oysters to start and sea bass to follow which was delicious. Didn't have any room for a pudding !
