Every day on our recent two week holiday we passed Pedra & Sal at least twice when either leaving or returning to our hotel, and at least twice a day we were accosted by the waiter trying to tempt us into Pedra & Sal. One day we decided to give it a try, mainly due to the perseverance of the aforementioned waiter. I ordered a steak in a mushroom sauce and asked for it to be medium cooked and my wife ordered the sea bass skewer. My wife asked if the fish was fresh before ordering and the waitress said "all of our fish is fresh". The skewer duly arrived after a very long wait and the fish on it was still partly raw as it had obviously been frozen and not thawed properly before cooking. The peppers on the skewer were well cooked through. My steak came rare, which wasn't a major issue as it could be returned for a little more cooking but since the sea bass skewer was a disaster and we were lied to regarding its freshness we departed and left the food behind, without paying obviously, telling the waiter the reasons, while the waitress hid inside. There are too many good places to eat in and around the area to put up with amateurish cooking, lies and under cooked fish . Does the chef realise what the consequences of serving almost raw fish can potentially be? Pity he wasn't as driven or had the high standards of the waiter who persuaded us to eat there.
