“Portuguese hospitality at its best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2013 via mobile

Used trip advisor as a recommendation and we where not disappointed . Table for 5 with no reservation, No problem, Once we where seated we had to choose from either the daily specials or from the menu. We all had a starter and a main course,no room for desert as the portions are quite large. The service was excellent, professional with a bit of fun thrown in and all for €120. Traditional Portuguese hospitality at its best.

“AS GOOD AS IT GETS”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2013

just returned from the algarve for the second time this year, you can rate this restaurant by the number of people using it and the number who are their regularly.
My wife and I have visited the area several times once found we go every night, the service is first class, the staff are fantastic and most important the food is superb and great value.
Whether you prefer seafood or great quality meat dishes you will not be disappointed.
The restaurant has a great feel unlike many on the edge of the marina.
My wife and I have been lucky to travel the world, this rates very high on the list.It would be in our tip three.

“The power of trip advisor”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2013

Like many others, we were guided here by the consistently good reviews. And it certainly lived up to expectations. There are many restaurants to chose from in this little square, away from the 'glamour' of the waterfront. But if you go for excellent food, and high standard friendly service rather than to be seen then this is the place to be. The high number of regulars / repeat visitors tells you all you need to know. The fish came out of the display and into the pan - and was probably in the sea this morning. Delicious. Wine is amazingly good value too, and I liked the retro sweet trolley!

“Amazing food and great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2013

We have been here quite a few times and it never disappoints. The welcome is friendly, the service and food excellent. The night we visited, it was so busy they were using outdoor tables of the cafe across the pavement yet still the service was attentive and the food brilliant.

Between us we had a fish special dish, steak and prawn skewer, monkfish and prawn skewer and the argentinian skewer which was a meat-lovers dream, several different meats and sausage. All were excellent and the price was still lower than anything, even the bog standard, would be at the marina.

It is no wonder this is a favourite restaurant for so many people
