Absolutely wonderful experience at Ocean Restaurant - it wasn't a meal - it was an experience! They catered to allergies as we gave them notice of limitations ahead of time. The food was out of this world - presented in a way that was honestly astonishing. Highly recommend booking this treat!

We had the clam chowder which was the best I've ever tasted, oysters Rockefeller and pompano then yes chocolate cheesecake. Each dish surpassed our high expectations and we were completely in love with Ocean. Service was the perfect balance between attentive and allowing us to enjoy conversation. Overall a fantastic dining experience.

Second time diferente year because they change the menu every year and the only work I have it's "unique". The place it's beautiful, the service really good but the food it's outstanding. A trip to another world; with local flavors they make eatable art and I thank you for existing.

A great , great experience! If you want to associate Dining to a celebration this is the right and unique place. Art, refined techique and Hans Neuer's knowledge and presentation of the Algarve and Portuguese flavours (fish, vegetables, meat and confectionery) and his team go together with the surrounding environmemt - transparency, candles, flowers, sea inside and outside. Superb environment,... More

What a staggeringly good restaurant. Totally worth the 2 stars and must be pushing for 3. We had the 9 course tasting, with the additional snacks and surprises this meal was one of the best. Compares very well with other Michelin star restaurants. We have had better single dishes within tasting menus but Oceans tasting menu is the most consistently... More

Sweetie and I dined at the Ocean as part of a twenty-person group organized tour. Being part of a group presented no problems however, as several couples got their own tables, and there was one bigger table for those who preferred that setup. The food and thw wines were delicious (we had a six-course tasting menu), and my gluten dietary... More

Great quality of food. Good regional products. Nice wine pairing (great port!). Certainly two star worthy.
