One of our favourite restaurants in the village, great selection of fresh fish cooked/grilled to order at reasonable prices (relative to the one 50 yds down the harbour....). The waiters will help you pick your fish and weigh it, so you know how much, then cooked to perfection along with garlic new potatoes and fresh veg. Also the fillet steak... More

We ate here 3 times on our recent trip to the Algarve - you will need to book a table in advance especially if you want to sit outside. All of our food was very tasty and plentiful, with all of the fish really enjoyable. The staff were very friendly and professional and the restaurant itself was spotlessly clean! The... More

We have been holidaying near Ferragudo for nearly 15yrs and recently moved to Luz. This evening we decided to head back to our favourite place on The Algarve and this time tried a new place for us, outside of the square and a bit more off the beaten track and how we wish we had done this before. The food,... More

We had a wonderful meal at A Ria last week. The staff were excellent and really helped us with our choice of meal. We loved the Sea Bream and Sea Bass and we all agreed this was our best meal of the two week holiday. The fish was perfectly cooked and very tasty. Thank you

Had the best meal ever, whilst holidaying near here recently. Don't be deceived by it's somewhat basic appearance from the outside, it is truly a little gem. The staff are all very attentive, very helpful with meal & wine suggestions & so friendly. We had walked past earlier in the day & seen the staff cleaning the fish at the... More

Small Restaurant, fish a speciality, cooked on a BBQ in front of you. Beautifully flavoured, great salad and potatoes which are often rubbish. Deserts all home made are terrific. Really warm attentive service. Best meal we had by far. Not the cheapest, but worth every penny. Go visit!!!
