Restaurant overlooking the water. Compact, but friendly and quick service. Nice food on our first night experience for a large family party. Well worth a visit

This is a 'must visit' restaurant if you're in Ferragudo, superb fresh fish, expertly talked through and filleted at your table. Have the battered sardines for a starter, you won't regret it!
