Visited with my Son during golfing break. Nice authentic restaurant, friendly staff and fabulous tasting food. We had the Grilled Mixed fish and King Prawn kebabs and both were excellent, would highly recommend.

On the main road, the outside seating means you're effectively sitting alongside the car park, which isn't a great environment. The food was mixed - the clams to start were probably the best I had in Portugal and the prawns were pronounced good too. The...More

Booked here on the first evening of our holiday largely because it was open on Monday, but we were very pleased we had. Very friendly and helpful staff, excellent food, great (and cheap) house wine and welcoming atmosphere. I can thoroughly recommend.
