We only went here as it was it was next to our apartment but we're glad we did! The service was exquisite and a special mention to Pedro, who was super friendly and very informative about the food and surrounding areas. The goats cheese and asparagus starter is a must and the wine was superb.

We had a family meal here & really enjoyed the whole experience. It's a bit of a walk, on the way down to the Marina, but well worth walking past the likes of Rossio to get there. The staff are very pleasant and the food was excellent. The menu has steak, fish, chicken & pastas on, so something for everybody.... More

I went here for my birthday. We booked in advance for a table of 10 and when we arrived the table was set how we asked. This is a nice restaurant and if you want to dine for a special occasion it is just the job. Service was good. I had the salmon fillet which was beautiful and a few... More

The restaurant has a beautiful setting, with fantastic views of both the Marina and the sea. Coupled with wonderful food, charming service and gorgeous wines, it really is a must do venue. My wife and I have dined there five times and have loved it every time. AND it is really good value!

The restaurant overlooks the marina at Albufeira. The food was excellent. The waiter was very friendly,the overall service was very good. Unfortunately they did not have many of the wines on the menu as they were apparently changing their supplier but that was the only issue we had. We were sitting on the terrace and the waiter kindly offered us... More

In a perfect spot overlooking the harbour, this friendly family run restaurant serves beautiful fresh meat, fish and vegetarian fare,with interesting and delicious sauces. You can sit outside on balmy evenings (warning, it's not open during the day), or inside if it's cool. We went back twice just because we wanted to try as much of the menu as possible!... More
