Just back from lunch at os salgados.. great place. Lots of locals. Fish as fresh as you get anywhere. King prawns and turbot superb. Not cheap but you get what you pay for...

“Disappointed after reading other reviews....average and overpriced.”
Reviewed July 14, 2014

Have enjoyed sitting outside this restaurant during the day enjoying drinks and icecream with kids.Staying in Salgados and after reading tripadviser reviews this Restaurant was a must to visit.
Certainly not a good first impression.Restaurant not busy and poor welcome by waiter No 1.It would be polite to be asked if you would like "Couverts" but bread,olives,cheese,fish pate etc all brought to table with gusto by waiter No 2.Drink order by waiter No 3 and drinks arrived with waiter no 4.Minimal interaction but I am also aware that language can be a barrier but a smile is free.
We all like fish and certainly a very limited menu which accomodates lunch and evening diners.Unfortunately we got another member of staff who took food and wine order.He was rather condescending on several occasions when I tried to voice my interest in choice of wine or explain to kids how the food was served(not a good idea...always keep the mammy happy)
My husband and I shared the grilled red snapper(No 5 pushed that we both share the red snapper and my husband very easy going and was still undecided but No 5 liked making the final decision and also with the wine.It was just ok and certainly not value for money but the view was pleasant.

“For fish and seafood lovers only”
Reviewed July 10, 2014

Had lunch at this small beachfront restaurant while staying in nearby villa. I ordered the grilled sardines which I enjoyed, my sons had prawns and grilled salmon, also fine. My wife who hates fish had chicken, which was ok. Service was courteous and efficient. Their prices are not cheap, but fair given the freshness of the fish and the wonderful location. Best everyone in your party keen on having fish...

“Best Fish in the Algarve”
Reviewed July 2, 2014

Visit Os Salgados several times a year,sometimes for lunch,but mostly in the evening
Best for Halibut large piece shared or sea base.
Also very good with children staff very friendly,however if you are not keen on football beware the TV is always on.

“Excellent fish dishes ”
Reviewed June 17, 2014 via mobile

We were staying at a local hotel so we loved the location on the beach front. We loved the fish - cooked in a manner to allow the quality of the fish do the talking!

The restaurant had a nice, relaxed atmosphere and is an excellent place to view a lovely sunset on the beach.
