If you want seafood, this is the place

Fantastic lunch we had, just walk in, we were welcomed straight away. We had a seafood platter, it was for two people, but easily could feed 3 or 4 people. Delicious and fresh!

I hadn't been to this restaurant since last winter. The owner has redecorated last year to a very high standard. Difficult to beat in this part of the world for fish and seafood, despite the slightly higher prices. Highly recommended.

Delightful Portuguese owned restaurant in Quarteira serving excellent fresh fish, shell fish and meat. Charming staff and a spectacular signature dish with loads of shell fish served for sharing, displayed on a very large model of a local fishing boat. Spotlessly clean. Well worth a visit and not overpriced for what you get.

We had fish as well as seafood. The variety and quality was excellent. The decor is pleasant and the staff very friendly. It is a family run restaurant with the owner on site at all times and it shows on the quality and service.

Away in a group of golfers and looking for a bit of local seafood, we decided to try the Sol e Mar again in Quarteira and were not disappointed. The new outdoor area was very comfortable and easily sat our group and the service was excellent. There were many different tastes in the group but everyone agreed that the food... More

Visited early October on the recommendation of Vanessa from lizzies in vilamoura. I was expecting good food but was blown away by the presentation, service and above all the quality of the seafood. This was probably the best meal I have ever eaten in a restaurant. Their unique specialty is a platter served in a boat. Not a small boat... More
