My wife and I had come here for dinner several years ago and enjoyed it so much we came back for lunch the next time we were in the area. It is still a very interesting location and the sea views were still great, but this time things did not go as well. We both ordered the lunch special which was a fried seafood basket. The food was badly overcooked to the point it was almost inedible. The waiter was of no help with the poor food then compounded the problem by charging us for food we did not order. It was not simply an error as he knew what the problem was as soon as I called him back to fix the check. I doubt that we will be back despite the attraction of the location.

We live in Avila and keep trying to like Olde Port Inn. We ate there again last week. Just a poorly executed, fish did not taste fresh meal.

We won't be back.

Place was recommended by the wedding photographer. You can actually drive out to the resturant that is at the end of an ancient wooden pier. We had a party of 30. Service was excellent, food (sea) was well prepared and presented. Everyone seemed to have a great time. I didn't hear any complaints. I didn't see the bill, but by what i ordered the prices seemed to be really reasonable. Highly recommended.

My wife and I with another couple stopped by on a Monday night. This restaurant has a great view from the end of the pier where it is located. Service was pleasant and adequate. The food was fine, but nothing unusual. The facility itself was somewhat dated. Overall it was a typical seaside restaurant, one you go to more for the view than the food.
