Fresh fish and vegetables. Nice decoration and friendly service. More pricy than other restaurants in Sagres, but still good value for the money.

I stopped off here for lunch one day whilst walking around Sagres. The food was great. I had prawns with rice, which was a good portion and quite tasty. The service was reasonable. Not overly friendly, but nice enough! The view was lovely. Overall a reasonably priced place, with decent food and a view to eat at in Sagres.

Lovely venue. A nice view and friendly staff. The fish was well cooked. With the fish we had vegetables and potatoes which were fab. We found it hard to get nicely cooked and a variety of veg in sagres hence loved this place. Nice homemade desserts and orange juice too.

Very friendly staff, only too happy to explain dishes. Ate local portugese delicacies. the Cataplana fish stew we shared was fantastic. Simple yet amazingly flavoursome. had baby squid as a shared starter, again very tasty, although looked a bit odd. tried the local port, which was great. And enjoyed a wonderful bottle of white Vino Verde that was priced extremely... More

Previously we've been very happy with this restaurant, but on this visit, the service was inexplicably slow and the food was not really up to standard. We waited more than an hour for food despite getting there early at 1240 for lunch and there were only 2 other couples seated before our party of 7. The seabass and sole were... More

Wonderful ocean views, but it was a little too windy to sit outside. This restaurant has a large indoor dining area, several waiters, fast service, and very good food.

We ended up at this restaurant almost accidentally after visiting the fort. Finding anything in Sagres via GPS is a challenge, and we were willing to eat anywhere. The View is spectacular, and the service was friendly when they were around. The problem with eating anywhere with 10+ people without calling ahead is that service can be a challenge, and... More

We stopped here for lunch on the way to Cabo do Sao Vincente, just because it overlooked the sea & we were hungry.We were rewarded with good food but just too much of it! We both ordered avocado and prawns for starters - we each got a whole, very large, perfectly ripe avocado filled with delicious prawns & beautifully presented.... More

I went there twice. First time for diner. The grilled chicken with peppers was very tasty, good price, service very average. I went back for lunch on the terrace. The salad was not good at all and the price was almost triple of what I usually pay for the same dish at any other small restaurant in the area. They... More
