We were staying at the pestana Porto santo which is approx 45-60 mins walk from this restaurant on the beach. We went nearly every day for drinks after our walk as its a lovely setting, drinks were cheap and the service good. It's definitely worth a visit.

If you have plenty of time to do nothing but sit at a table, listening to your kids asking how long it will be before someone takes a drinks order, (68 minutes in our case), how long before they arrive, how long before the food order is taken and how long before it arrives, just over 2 hours for the...
