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.

Excellently located in the cute beachfront of Olhos d'Agua, this is a quite large restaurant with lots of good food on offer. We had the seafood rice, served with a lot more seafood than usual - delicious. Even relatively empty as it's off-season, the service was attentive as well as quick.

With a party of 13 we needed to book in advance to secure the table on the verandah overlooking the sea and rocks. Antonio looked after us on the night we arrived. A wide range of dishes were all praised for content and quality. Price was excellent as was the service. I highly recommend this restaurant.

This a lovely place for an evening meal, sat directly above the beach, listening to the sea. Friendly waiters who are only too happy to help.

As others have pointed out very expensive for what you get and the service is poor to boot. You only get conned once !!

We went for our wedding Anniversay and like to eat early. We arrived at about 7pm and waiters did not seem interested in serving dinner to us. When food finally arrived we were disappointed with both quality and service also very expensive.

A lovely situation overlooking the beach. The food was not hot although the sole was very good. The presentation of the food was unimaginative and lacked style. Quite a lot of money for something quite average.

Thank Richard H
