We have visited this restaurant several times over the years and have always found it to be pretty good but we 2 different experiences this year. On our first visit with friends the place was very busy but we did get a seat straight away and a free wine tasting while we waited to order. The food and service was... More

Pretentious.......Moi? We ate here for my birthday as it was local to our hotel and seemed busy often We did not have to wait for a table which was good We ate lobster and the crab which are sold by weight and not per portion. So a typical 600g lobster will set you back €50 and the full crab around... More

I tried a cataplana algarvia, a bit disappointed, should have tried the traditional shellfish. A bit expensive the the service is good, fast and nice. At the end i got a free drink maybe because i spent more than 100 euros, for two adults and a child!

I visited this restaurant on our last night in Portugal & had begun by reading some of the reviews about the place before hand. My first impression of the place is that it needs to decide what it wants to be, fine dining or just a restaurant serving good local food. The food was average & the service a bit... More

Food was good and staff friendly. We were a group of 8 and each time had starters and main course, 2 bottles of wine , and lots of soft drinks and the bill was never more that 195 euros. Reasonably priced .

As we are staying just down the road we thought we would pop in for lunch. There is plenty of seating available and the inside is well air conditioned. The menu is very much based around a sea food offering which i love as it is. I went for the salmon, prawn & chorizo kebab which was amazing and quite... More

The staff were friendly enough and the service was prompt. Their was a reasonable selection on the menu, lots and lots of seafood, but very little filleted during preparation. The wine list was average, with mostly local wines. Upon arrival the food was all a little too greasy, especially disappointing with the children's menu. The atmosphere was ok, and there... More

We were a party of 13 (8 adults and 5 kids) and booked for an evening meal and were pleased with the meal, although expectations were high. The quality of the seafood is great, fresh and well cooked and the service is friendly and efficient. The place is nice to look at with lots of warm romantic lighting and nice... More
