Super welcome and service, good food and wine selection, and best of all, they arranged a taxi to our accommodation - and we'd been told there were none.

We ate 4 times here and each time the food and service was just great. Wonderful fresh fish, the sea bass for two persons was so tasty as was the arroz do marisco. And in a brilliant old village setting. A small restaurant but a big welcome received and great value for money. This restaurant alone would encourage us to... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal here, lots of good fish available and tastefully prepared. This restaurant offers very good value for money. The weather was cool when we went, so we sat inside, but there is a great terrace for eating out in warm weather with a nice sea view.

The food at this restaurant was lovely. I went for the veal and have never had so much meat on my plate. Everyone enjoyed their meals. We must also make special mention to Anna, a local lady who sorted us out in putting our requests to the waiters and translating for us. She was an absolute star! It cost €180... More

We ate in the restaurant twice during our stay and on both occasions left fully satisfied. The staff were friendly, attentive and informative. Value for money was excellent. We can't fault the place.

Senhor Bacalhau is definitely the best restaurant in and around Afife. We had dinner there twice during our recent holiday in Portugal and were not disappointed. Great food, a very friendly host - the only downside are desserts, there is a lot to improve in that section!

We recently had a delicious lunch at Senhor Bacalhau in Afife. The service was friendly and efficient. We ordered mussels and green soup as entrees. Both were very enjoyable - the mussels in particular were fresh and very tasty. We decided to have the sea bass meal for two as our main course. Wow! What a great presentation! The sea... More

We were there for dinner twice (the second time only as this was the only restaurant open). The terrace is nice to sit and drink, the staff is friendly. But, I'm sorry to say, the food is really not good. We ordered the fish of the house and the salad of the house - and didn't finish either. The probably... More

For me is one of the best restaurants in the area. The bacalhau is quite good and the staff is very nice. We really enjoyed the restaurant.
