“Poor service and very average food”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

We were very dissapointed during our visit to Tony's Bar. We waited best part of an hour for our starters to arrive and then we were only half way through eating them when our main courses were 'chucked' on the table for us!! Poorly cooked food (although we did have meat maybe the fish would have been a better choice)

Desserts were at the best average and were also small portions.

Staff were not very friendly and we got the impression that we were not really welcome and they without doubt favoured the Portugese customers!

On paying our bill one of the waiters was most insistent that we purchased wine to take away, he was not very happy when we declined!

Would not return or recommend this restaurant.

“Great Caipirinha!!!”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

Tony bar is Ok...but not the best. Its fun, staff is engaging, Tony is there also engaging and I guess that's what makes the place stand out. Food is good and plenty . But plase try other places as well. They make really good caipirinha (brazilian drinks)

“Excellent fish, simply cooked”
Reviewed August 15, 2012

We ate at this busy restaurant on two evenings, outside and inside. The outside tables have nice view of the little square/sea. On both occasions, our fish were simply grilled by the owner on the outside grills and included a generous serving of boiled vegetables. My husband thought it was the best pudim flan he ate on the holiday. It's a busy place with queues for the outside tables, but the service was very friendly and both times, we felt it represented excellent value for money.

“Yuk Wont be back”
Reviewed August 12, 2012

From dirty cutlery and bread baskets to staff who were totally charmless. My wife and I both had the touristique menu simply because it included swordfish and Chocolate Mousse for which Lonely Planet guide had rated the restaurant - it was awful. The fish was appalling and the mousse when it arrived we were told wasnt chocolate mousse but some disgusting coconut charmless thing and as my wife hates coconut was simply poor. Not to mention they ignored my daughter and almost seemed unwilling to take her order despite her eating adult meals (and paying adult prices).

The food was poor but the staff made the food seem good totally charmless and I wont be back I hope.

“And met Eusabio as well !”
Reviewed June 21, 2012

Our group of golfers stayed in this neighbourhood recently. We spent two evenings in this restaurant/bar. Excellent seafood and good value wine made for good enjoyable evenings. During chats with the staff regarding a special bottle of Port on display, we were told that it was a limited edition vintage in honour of Portugals famous footballer of the 1960/70's. On our second night I was introduced to the great man and he offered to join our group for photographs. Happy memories of a great evening !
