Off the beaten track on the road to the spit, dont let the location put you off. Overlooks the Guardiana, very friendly staff, excellent food, good service and reasonable prices.

We have a home in Castro Marim and visit regularly. We found this amazing place by accident and it's now our favourite place for a special meal when we visit. It's nothing posh - very rustic but good service amazing views and the food and wine are reasonably priced. We always book so we get a table overlooking the river.

We went to this restaurant on a lovely sunny Friday lunchtime and managed to get a table on the terrace overlooking the river. I had lamb chops and my wife had grilled prawns, and both were delicious. The waitress recommended the wine and we had a delightful white. The service was also good but it did take a while to...

A excelent restaurant in Vila Real de Santo António, had some good sardines with a good salad, and a glass of house wine. Everything was well cooked, tasty and on time. The restaurant has a excelente view and relaxed atmosphere. Relation price quality is good.

My wife and I were visiting Vila Real and it was lunch time. TripAdvisor said that this place was worth a visit and our GPS showed us that we just had to walk along by the river and we 'd find it ...and we did! We didn't order a starter but they brought some bread, cheese, olives and sardine pate... More

After driving down the side street past several warehouses, we found the restaurant (thank goodness for google directions). What a find.....we had booked a table on the terrace, and happily sat there from 1pm until 430pm.....absorbing the breathtaking view, watching fishing boats, fish jumping out of the water, just gorgeous. The food was great.......not sensational, but very good, and the... More

Located by the Guadiana river. The outdoor terrace overlook the river and the Spanish town of Ayamonte. Enjoy the sailing and fishing boats traffic. The decoration is simple and has a naval flavour. Try the grilled sea fish. The house wine is very decent. Do not miss the regional deserts. Staff is ok. Prices are medium high whenever you chose... More

Returning home from summer vacations, TripAdvisor lead us to this great Portuguese Restaurant with typical Portuguese grilled food (fish and meat), as well as, with typical Portuguese Wines available. Because the Restaurant was crowded, we were requested to wait for some minutes (around 20min), but it was OK as the food as really good, as well as, the fresh "Sangria",... More

We had lunch here mid August. We booked the day before. I'm glad we did as they were people being turned away when we arrived. This restaurant is located down a dusty old road with a few tired buildings. It doesn't look like the place for a restaurant. However once parked up you were realise that this place is a... More
