Visited 3 times during our stay in Faja da Ovelha, the food was delicious and the staff was very friendly. The fish dishes were very good and the deserts and the maracuja mouse great. Large portions and great food. What do you want more. Highly recommended. Next time we'll visit again.

We had chocolate mouse and passion fruit ice cream for... More

We kept going back as the food was delicious and the staff was very friendly and welcoming. We enjoyed the fish stew, the calamar, the beef kebab amongst others. The portions are generous. We recommend the passion fruit mousse as it is the best we have tasted on the island.
