Its all about the location, looking over a lovely beach and unblemished sky. Expensive for what it is and being next to the fish market. One waiter was really friendly, the others not so. Not much to take away.Pretty average for the price.

Avoid this restaurant it is over priced not very clean every thing is drenched in oil and served on cold plates even vegetables soaked in oil chef needs to go back to cooking classes and be taught about healthy cooking. Very disappointed

Had a couple of lunches here, just walked along the front from Vilamoura. We had the Tuna salad, excellent, lovely salad, crisp and fresh and plenty of tuna, bowl of chips, drinks and a bottle of water. Very reasonable. Staff and service very good....

Nice location. Food not great. All long wait ! Not good in off peak season. Best tip! Be careful if you are on a budget as bread olives cheese or any thing else that you are given and have not ordered! Is extra and not complementary. And can add an extra e5 to e10 to your bill.

Bad service, worst mackerel grill. Salad is old. Calamari is frozen supermarket type. They should probably close in January rather than serving bad food. There are many other decent and cheap places with delicious local seafood. Avoid if you can.

A place for chicken and fish, and also the have pork ribs but not every day. A slightly out of the way place to go to, but worth it.

Really poor service. Chef needs a master class on how to cook veg as it was overcooked and not seasoned. Fish was ok but very expensive. We spend much longer there than expected - kept asking for the bill for 30 minutes!!! I ended up standing in the middle of the restaurants trying to pay and the guy kept saying... More

We have visited this restaurant twice during our Christmas / New Year break. It is situated in Quarteira close to the fish market The setting is excellent and has tables on the terrace. The food is superb.We enjoyed the homemade fish soup and the excellent prawns. Not expensive,very clean and friendly staff. Will definitely return here in April
