“Beach feeling inside”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2012

We loved the location near the beach and the restaurant with sea-sand on the floor.

“Formerly the Dros, now called Ponto's”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2012

A friend had recommended the Dros to us, but we discovered it's now called Ponto's. It's run by the same people who had the Dros franchise so previous reviews should still apply. We found it one Saturday evening and chatted to one of the owner / manager team who offered us a complimentary glass of wine. We returned the next day, with friends, for Sunday lunch. My wife and I chose the fixed price carvery option and the food was excellent, with plenty of nicely-cooked vegetable dishes which appealed particularly to my wife. Our friends ate a la carte and chose steak(served Portuguese-style with a fried egg on top). It came medium rare, which they had asked for, and was judged to be delicious. Ponto is a deservedly popular restaurant for Sunday lunch and it's probably a good idea to book in advance.

“Excellent location - food could have been better though”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2011

Vast menu - quality was variable though. Pizza was good - steak was poor.
Rather dingy surroundings - needs a lot of money spending on it to bring it into the 21st century - understand that the owner also owns most of the surrounding restaruants so has little incentive to improve any of them.
Sent one dish back - staff gave a refund so full marks for customer service
