“Windy but tasty !”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

Well, what can I say? I've been visiting Ribeira Brava since I was born... but it never captivated me enough to have a meal there. Well, after having lunch in Borda d'Água I have noticed it was pure ignorance of mine!
Service is not excelent but what comes to your dish is very rewarding ! Tuna steak and Beef Steak with Mushroom sauce are definitely approved !
The wind issue... well.. it is a place where you can easily get a windy weather.

I must go back there, totally !

“An enjoyable lunch...”
Reviewed October 18, 2013 via mobile

We had a lovely lunch here. Service was good and the staff are friendly. It is not over expensive. I would recommend this as a good place to eat.

“Nice food at a reasonable price with excellent atmosphere”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

Ate here last night on our way back from Porto moniz, the food was good, plenty of choice at reasonable prices but the sunset views and the excellent service made a really nice atmosphere. The owner has obviously listened to previous reviews because our waiter was fairly new and couldn't be better! In fact all staff we encountered were really friendly and welcoming. Would recommend if you're not looking for Michelin star food, but good food and a nice atmosphere.

“Fantastic restaurant and host”
Reviewed September 26, 2013

Borda d'agua is run by Vieira who is one of the most genial hosts I have ever encountered. The food is excellent, particularly the fish, of which there was a fantastic selection, which makes this restaurant a "must visit" for fish lovers. The restaurant is set in a beautiful area right on the seafront at Ribeira Brava and was a joy to eat at. A superb restaurant experience.

“Food is okay but view is splendid”
Reviewed September 12, 2013

The food in this restaurant is average to good. As described before, the service is quite terrible and non efficient, the manager should clearly do something about this. But the view is stunning. Dining here with a view on the setting sun is really cool. So i would rather give 4 stars, but this would give the restaurant to much credit.
