“Beach, ocean views and good fish!”
Reviewed September 16, 2012 via mobile

The restaurant is located in the beach, near the Vila Galé Hotel.
The place offers excelent views of the ocean, specially if you eat outside.
We have had a very good "Camarão al Ajillo" (shrimp in garlic sauce), followed by a good "Grelhada Mista de Peixe" (mixed fish grilled).
The service was quick and friendly, and the price was fair.
In summary, a very good option if you like beach, ocean views or good fish.

“Better than expected !”
Reviewed September 2, 2012

Coming to think of it, only the service was bad, all else just perfect.
This is not a fancy restaurant, the atmosphere is very casual, the prices are very very good (considering you're sitting just above the beach with an amazing view).
The menu could be a bit more diversified but it's about right and the food is excellent!
I believe they take pretty normal everyday kind of fish plates and take them to a new level.
Only if they could add a decent service with nice, helpful and effective staff and this restaurant would be "excellent" instead of "very good".

“Abundant and tasty!”
Reviewed August 29, 2012

I ate on the terrace, a few meters from the beach: great view!
We shared some salada de ovas (boiled fish eggsacks salad) and a wonderful, tasty, huge kettle of açorda de marisco: it's been served with 2 lobsters on top, it was full of flavours, spicy and delicious.
Good white whine sangria, informal service. The sardines and seabass my friends tried looked tasty too, and they surely didn't complain.

“Good food and good view”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

This is a great restaurant to sit outside for lunch with a good view, both fish and meat plates are good and the fact that you can sit outside, see everyone going to the beach and enjoy some nice food makes this restaurant special. The service can sometimes be slow but then again, the people that go there are never in a rush...
I personaly recommend
