“Great food, great staff. Must visit!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2013

Lovely it here. Had 2 meals here on our recent holiday both were fab. Reasonable food, great selection, staff very friendly and helpful. My husband had the Shanghai Steak (Beef) and it was lovely and I had the Monkfish which was excellent. Would definitely recommend this restaurant.

“Great Food Top Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2013

This was recommended by friends & I've just seen them for the 1st time since our holiday & I thanked them for telling us about it. Slightly out of the way but still only minutes from the marina. We went 3 times in 10 nights, so that speaks for itself. Fabulous cataplana & grilled fish.Staff really helpful & friendly. A must for anyone going to Vilamoura. It's under the Dom Pedro in a precinct but don't miss it. Only a small outside area but we got into these each time

“Fantastic Fish”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2013

This was our first visit to this lovely little restaurant hiding away in this small shopping unit.
The welcome was warm and sincere and the service great throughout our meal.
We enjoyed Spider Crab Fritters to start which were very good.
My wife then had Turbot and Prawns which she said was delicious.
I could not resist a Fillet Steak with Prawns, Noodles, Ginger, Mushrooms and Garlic which was very good.
My wife finished with a very good Creme Brulee.
We had the house Alentajo white wine which was very nice and well priced.
The whole meal came to just under 60 euros which we thought was excellent value.

“A great fish restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2013

The king prawn piri piri is a must! This restaurant is maybe slightly dearer than others, however for 60 euros, myself and my girlfriend had a starter and main course each, a half bottle of wine and 2 beers. The food was excellent as well as the service and they have a tradition of serving the food with silver bell covers and then removing them with a clash - pretty excellent. This restaurant is well worth a visit.

“Kaz”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2013

A local advert recommended the restaurant and we were very impressed with the service and friendliness of all the staff. The food was excellent and good value, in my opinion far better than restaurants around the Marina. It took us a while to find it but very helpful locals pointed us in the right direction.
