Dont go to this place. I am sitting here for 1.30 hour still waiting for appetizers. 10+ useless and rude staff. Avoid this place at all costs.

Just had lunch for 6. Glad we booked as really busy and service slow but well worth the wait. Good value too

Very nice place, rather touristic..overloaded in during Hot season..we arrived at 14:00..main course was served at~15:40 😅 Prices moderate, dishes are simple but tasty and very generous😋 Good to go with friends and family. Excellent fish, fresh, ideally cooked.

This is probably the best restaurant here. It offers indoors and outdoors seating. The menue is local Portuguese food and a lot of fresh sea food. Delicious.

This was, without a doubt, the best Portuguese meal I've ever had. I have, frankly, been disappointed that average Portuguese cuisine simply doesn't compare to average French, Italian, Spanish...or even authentic rural Mexican. Tonight Sitio do Rio made up for some of that. We left...More

If you are in the region of Carrapateira/Bordeira (beautiful beaches), then this is the restaurant for you. It is very big (outside and inside areas) and gets very busy. Have only been there in off-season and it is usually possible to find a table There...More
