The atmosphere is pleasant, the proprietor is charming, the prices reasonable, and the food is well prepared. Everything we want in a restaurant.

“Didn't Disappoint”
Reviewed January 30, 2014

Many restaurants in this area are closed in January so we relied heavily on Trip Adviser reviews. This one certainly did not disappoint and was a great choice. Very friendly but unobtrusive owners and a good choice of food on the menu despite it being the depth of the closed season. All freshly prepared we were assured. Between the three of us we certainly tested that assertion - steak, fish pie, fish of the day (sea bass). All was cooked and prepared to pefection and was certainly to our liking. Almond tart for dessert was unusual and 'to die for'. Excellent house wine at very good price.
All in all a very good experience which we would recommend.

“Lovely light lunch”
Reviewed January 29, 2014

We were lost and walking back to our resort and stumbled across this lovely restaurant. We were only after a light snack and the sun was shining on the terrace.
The food was delicious, very fresh.
They also offered a tourist menu.
Well worth a visit.

“Excellent food and service”
Reviewed January 17, 2014

We visited Festa de Praia for the first time in October, after having walked by so many times on previous trips. We are so glad we decided to go in! Paula the owner was so friendly and nothing was too much trouble. On a day my son had a poorly tummy, she fixed him some plain chicken and rice, which although plain still tasted good. The food was amazing especially the sea bass and the pork with raisin sauce. The price was good too. We will definitely be returning.

“Wish we'd found it sooner”
Reviewed January 3, 2014 via mobile

My Partner and I came to this restaurant as it was near our hotel. It was the last night of the holiday and we were looking for somewhere quick and convenient before our early flight the following day. I wish we had been sooner in the week as we would definitely had gone back for seconds. The food was lovely and the staff were the perfect hosts. A great little find for traditional Portuguese food. We will be back!
