Had trouble finding this place as it is quite tucked away off the strip. But once we did I was very impressed. Great food and a lovely waitress who chatted away with us. Would have gone back if our trip had been longer

Wandered in on our first night not knowing what to expect but came out having a great meal , reasonably priced and we'll looked after - the woman whom served us really looked after us and was really fun . Not quite on the strip but that made it better as away from all the madness

Visited here with my husband and 3 children...yes it's a few meters off the strip, but worth every step! The children were made to feel incredibly welcome, the food was fantastic and the atmosphere relaxed. Not rushed, nothing was too much trouble. Wished we discovered this before day 10! Great value too.

We went again last Thursday with a family of nine, and the food was as good as ever the mixed grill and chicken peri-peri were particularly tasty. Service was friendly with our 18 month old granddaughter getting special attention, and considering we were a... More

We were approached by a lovely man on the main strip . It's only 1 minute walk from the strip but it's worth it! Cataplana is so amazing! Lovely staff and true Portuguese experience

We were approached by a very friendly gentleman called Tony who promised us that The Blue Sky was an authentic Portuguese restaurant with good food and good prices. He wasn't to pushy in making us go there (Which my partner finds really annoying) We were welcomed by a lovely lady called Cecilia, very relaxed atmosphere, no TV Or football as... More
