“Nothing outstanding.”
Reviewed August 4, 2012

We called in here on an evening for a light meal. This is situated in one of the many ugly looking cafe/restaurants/bars which litter the promenade in Costa de Caparica. The buildings are functional but how anyone could inflict such ugly architecture along a lovely beachfront amazes me.

This is a big restaurant space and Caroline do Aires was in existence in a former building when we visited in 2005 and had a lovely authentic feel to it. We ordered omelette and french fries and it fed us! The chips were soggy and grey looking and the omelette was okay. We did have a nice bottle of wine. We were presented with rolls and cream cheese as we sat down but we did not partake....so were not charged for this.
The omelettes were €8 ish so not very cheap for what we got...maybe we ordered badly as we did see lots of customers enjoying fish dishes.

“Very Disturbing”
Reviewed May 13, 2011

We went here for a late night drink and snack after a very nice day touring around. We left with a very bad feeling, the guy that served us had major problems with the time he stood over us and made some tutting sounds whilst checking his watch....they charged us for appetizers that in other places had been complimentary, when we stood up to leave the waiter barged us aside and took our drinks before the glasses were empy......apart from the horrible service we had kebabs and chips which were pretty good drinks were a fair price also.....definately not go back though!!
