Our hotel pool wasn't up to much so we were looking for somewhere to spend the day rather than hitting the beach again with our 3 boys. We had a really relaxing day here almost felt like our own private pool initially but it did get busier throughout the day which was fine. The staff were welcoming, the food was... More

Absolutely fantastic food. We both picked one of the daily specialities for lunch, and was both extremely impressed. So nice and tasty food, beautiful setting and great and fast service from the male waiter. Everything was nice and clean. The food has to be the best we tasted while in Portugal.

We were staying just around the corner so we tried this restaurant for a take away on our first night. We subsequently dine here a further 3 times. Very friendly staff, thanks especially Lily. Great food, recommend the monkfish and prawn kebabs, Portuguese style fillet steak. Great for young children too.

Just a short walk from our apartment at Mar Bel Sol and nice to get away from the crowds on the marina. Visited twice and had lovely food on each occasion the steak was enormous and the monkfish and prawn kebab is highly recommended.
