We've been there for lunch (group of 6). Nice cafe food, we had grilled cod, peri peri chicken and some salads. Food was ok, service is Ok too, not a great selection of deserts. Coffee is really good though!

We just had a quick snack but it was good. We also had a breakfast there and was also good. And it's near the beach ;-)

If you visit you must try and fish and flambe banana, was delicious! Good sized children's meals (with smiley faces) and tasty steaks. Unfortunately we didn't have a chance to return but definitely a must visit in Quarteira as one of very few restaurants open before 8pm.

We visited this restaurant for lunch. The sign in the street helps to find the restaurant since its not in the main street. The food is good and the staff is friendly but it takes for ages the food to arrive (>45m), the place wasn't crowded and we just eat a burger and roasted chicken... No couvert was brought to...

This is easily the loveliest meal we have had in a very long time. We shared the clams to start and then followed it with the 'steak sandwich', both of which were perfect! Amazing quality food and really well priced. Would strongly recommend- Oh and you should definitely have dessert as they have an amazing selection :)

My family and I have been to this restaurant 3 times in 3 days; twice for dinner and once for lunch. We have not been disappointed with the quality of the food or the service. Everything was spot on. Prices are very good also. Our server was Daniella (I think I got that right? :/), who was very friendly and... More

We have used this restaurant over the past three years and it never seems to fail, freshly cooked food made to order, daily specials that change regularly, super friendly staff and if you sit in the right place then you get a sea view

We tried the fish and stake, house wine and desserts. Everything was high quality. We visited them 3 times. Our waiter Daniella was very nice and we will definitely go there again.

How good is the food?? The scabbard with flambeed banana was the BEST tasting fish I have EVER had. My better half had a SLAB of salmon which looked VERY tasty. This place is a must try.
