We stopped here for lunch & sat next to the beach. The food was good & the service too. The atmosphere was friendly & serene. An ideal spot for a long lunch in the sun. The sea lapping at the shore adds to the ambiance.

Went here due to the amazing location sited adjacent to the lovely beach. Seemed well overpriced and quality was not great. Would I try this play again? Possibly!

Beautiful small village. Beautiful beach. Great location. Very good and fresh sea food. Well prepared. Service is diligence. Pricey, as there is no true differentiation, foodwise. Location makes it worth. António Vieira da Silva
