Was told by friends of this restaurant. The place itself is not only unpretentious but also like every other run of the mill, portuguese rest.
But we were there for the meal itself, and that did not disappoint. The fried prawns were fresh, deliciously seasoned with garlic and perfectly cooked. That was the starter. For main meal we had the monkfish cataplana - it had clams, shrimp, peppers,onions, potatoes.... it was just amazing ! Again the freshness of the fish and seafood was obvious and the balance of all seasonings only enhanced the fish itself. We ended up eating far too much and had no space for desert. Well worth the visit.

One of our favourite fish restaurants - family service and always very friendly. Pretty much any fish you want and cooked perfectly. The fish stew is great.
an added bonus this year is they now take bookings so you don;t have to be there for 7pm to ensure you get a seat (its a favourite with the locals).

In the center of Quarteira, with fresh fish and with sea food typical dishes. With good quality and a good service, is a place that I recommend. The value is balanced and fair. Reservation needed. Always full

This restaurant is obviously aimed at, shall we say, the wealthier visitor to the area. Surprised other reviewers saw no tourists, clientele was all tourists when we were in, some portuguese, but people on holiday none the less. I imagine they would come from Vale do Lobo and Villamoura rather than Quarteira. This was by far the most expensive meal we had in Quarteira but it was very good, four stars because we had other very good meals at considerably cheaper prices. Tomato salad, monkfish with rice for 2 (huge, would have served 4), bottle of water and bottle of house wine. Couldn't find fault with anything, service very good too, bill E60. Would go back, but only for special occasions, more often if money no object.
