This restaurant was recommended to us by the Conrad hotel in Quinta do lago as being the best fish restaurant in the Algarve. The restaurant is situated down a small but steep lane, on one side of the lane a small indoor restaurant, and on the opposite side, a small alfresco dining area. When we arrived at lunch we were asked where we wanted to sit and chose the al fresco. We were immediately asked what we would like to drink, given the menu, and a short time later the waiter came to our table with a large salver, consisting of a range of fresh fish that had, apparently, been caught that morning (Most fish looks the same when it has been caught, and we we not sure how to evaluate what we were being shown. However we both chose the sea bass, and it was taken away to be cooked. The meal was fantastic. ( it was delivered to us in one piece on a large platter) It was not expensive, It was a long drive from the Conrad (we had a hire car,) but was well worth it. Make sure you dont miss it. (Bear in mind that is closed on Sundays )

Great choice of fresh fish and very nice staff. Restaurant is located a little bit away from the sea shore. Nice and relaxed terrace in the shade. Prices are incredibly low. Very good food!

We were staying on Olhos de Agua but had to make a special trip to Salema to have a meal in this restaurant as we had eaten there when in the Algarve 7 years ago. Food and service as good in 2014 as it was in 2007. Seafood is all very fresh and prepared very nicely. Prices are reasonable and quantity and quality of food super. Highly recommend this restaurant and look forward to returning to it next time we are in the Algarve.

We liked this place so much, we ate here twice! All of the fish were caught fresh that day and displayed to us on a very large tray. There were many, many varieties of fish and you chose the one you wanted. The fish were cooked and seasoned perfectly, and literally melted in your mouth. They had a decent selection of wines and we were not disappointed in any of our choices. In addition, our server was very gracious and attentive. Also, you may want to make a reservation. The restaurant is fairly small and there are only about 10 to 12 tables. We weren't aware that we needed to do that, and we almost didn't get seated the first night. We can not say enough good things about this place. We thoroughly enjoyed it and would highly recommend this to everybody.
