Charming restaurant and everyone who worked there was helpful and pleasant. My husband accidently spilled a glass of wine all over me, the table, it was a mess. They were happy to help clean up and bring a new glass. Food was amazing. I love this entire area, it's so laid back.

Fabulous evening, Aunt Gabriellas rabbit was outstanding (if there was a criticism, maybe a little salty for me) as was the tapas type starters we had, service was great, they also arranged an inexpensive taxi back to our hotel1

We visited on the back of previous reviews. The prices were the same as the other top restaurants in Sagres, but this had the best and assume Portuguese atmosphere. We like a happy and relaxed atmosphere while eating and visiting four times we were not dismayed with the quality of the food, the friendly and efficient service. The beef fillets with mushroom sauce were melt in the mouth, the fresh fish excellent and all the desserts were delicious. A place to remember.

My wife and I had dinner there after watching the sunset at Cape St Vincent. We were a bit disappointed with food and service, considering the great reviews and the high prices. Dishes were prepared using very fresh fish, but seasoned with too much garlic, oil or cream... my seafood spaghetti at E30 tated mostly of garlic. Service was hit and miss too: after our main course we were ignored for at least 20 minutes... at that point we had enough and just asked for the bill.
