About
The location on the cliff of Benagil beach in a century old house with a unique view over the immensity of the sea is a constant stop for lovers of authentic cuisine of sea roots. Fish and seafood come to the table with the fresh taste of the sea breeze followed by the amazing Portuguese wines. From the land, we offer the best cuts of meat in a succulent trip of unique flavors. In a relaxed and cosmopolitan atmosphere with Terrace, Inside Room and Lounge where eating becomes an authentic gastronomic experience.
