The food was very good, the service was friendly and the atmosphere was relaxed and comfortable. The shrimp risotto was very nice and the vegetarian burger also nice.

We enjoyed the squid risotto and the grilled tuna - each perfectly prepared. A calm atmosphere, good food, and I recommend this restaurant based on our experience.

Stayed at the Charming Blue Hotel which shares the facilities of this restaurant. I must say, we really don´t get all the good reviews for this place. The food is alright, but price much higher than the surrounding restaurants. The risotto was not really anything...More

Nothing but the best in quality, service, and price. You simply can't go wrong. If you're not staying at the hotel, you MUST dine at this restaurant.

Probably the most upmarket choice in Vila do Porto, this place offers a stylish interior and caters to tourists. We started with the fish soup, which was rather average, followed by the local pork and the beef dish. Both were excellent and went well with...More
