We had very accomodating service. Local ingredients cooked well and with the restaurant’s own twist. The grilled octopus was delicious.

We enjoyed our meal on the veranda overlooking the spectacular west coast of southern Portugal. Off the beaten path but well worth the detour. Food was very good. They were quite busy on a Sunday afternoon but service was good.

Very nice location in front of sea. Excellent food and grilled fish. It is a very crowded restaurant so I recommend that you make a reservation in the summer months. Finally, the personnel are kind and diligent.
