The atmosphere is really nice, the decoration is done with old tools and items and lovingly arranged.
The service is very personal and very efficient at the same time.
The food is excellent and a mixture of portuguese and mediterranean fare. They have daily fish recommendations presented on a platter in addition to the menu which offers a good range of fish, meat and vegetarian dishes.
The price range is a little higher than most traditional places but the you receive excellent quality food and service in return.

A very nice little restaurant in the heart of Sagres, and worth a visit if you have time. There are a number of good options in the town

We went to Vila Velha without a reservation and needed to take the last table in the glassed in outer room. The main room is more intimate and attractive.The outer room is used mainly for groups, but before our main course, the group had cleared out. Our fault for not reserving.
The meal was well above average. I had fish soup to start and my companion had mushrooms in cream. Mains were rabbit stew and chicken skewer with pineapple and fried banana. All very good. Wine list is good and reasonably priced. Highly recommended, but make a reservation. There is outdoor seating when the weather is suitable.

The food was quite on the average, we had pork - chorizo skewers and fresh fish kebab as main.
The price of the fish kebab was not written anywhere, as part of the daily specials. Fair enough, but when I saw that the price for that fish skewer was 29.40 € I felt a bit disappointed...Also, yes, all good, but nothing particularly exciting.
