We had a nice meal at this restaurant. It has fantastic views over the sea, and the boardwalk starts here.

Read a few negative reviews on here which almost swayed me from eating here. Thankfully we did try it. Fantastic service and an extremely delicious cataplana which was worth every penny. I only wish there was more daylight to appreciate the view from the restaurant

This place, if you eat outside, has a fantastic view of the Ocean; almost worth a visit in itself. The menu is fairly extensive and whilst we only had a salad, it was obviously freshly made and nicely presented. Service good. Nuf said.
