We were told there would be a 15 minute wait on a table however it took a lot longer (around 45minutes). We should have known at this point that the service would be slow! We ordered food and then had to wait over one hour for our food, some of which was the wrong dish so had to be sent... More

When the food eventually arrived it was nice enough but we had to wait an hour for a table (we were told it would be 15 mins and thereafter 'just a few minutes' each time until they got half of our party to sit next to the party they were waiting on to leave at the other side of their... More

We had several long lunches and one dinner here during our 2 weeks holiday in Olhos d'Agua and the food was always good. As it's close to the beach, it does get very busy, so we sometimes had a little wait, but who cares when you are chillin' out and relaxing on holiday. Very popular with the Portuguese, who are...

Good food at a reasonable price with views across to the beach, gets busy later on. Fine for couples or families. Good sea food.

Great meal after being let down by Nelsons Restaurant booking fiasco. Mussels were plentiful, chicken PiriPiri is not huge but big enough to keep a 17stone Rugby player amused. Shrimp and Squid Kebab looks good and service is second to none. Reasonably Cheap to boot!!

We have been here a few times this week and have tried a variety of dishes on the menu. So far everything apart from the chicken curry has been amazing. The chicken curry was not my type of curry at all but others may like it, tasted fruity and coconut. Piri piri chicken is my absolute favourite. After visiting on... More
