What a perfect little spot! We ate lunch at the Lemon Tree almost everyday over a ten day period, and were never disappointed. Fresh local ingredients, generous portions and friendly accommodating staff make this cafe a wonderful place to either have a meal, or just sit and sip while enjoying the ocean and sun. Treat yourself if you're in the... More

We had lunch at Lemon Tree. Service was very good, drinks were cold and food was nice and came out quickly. Great place to fill up before the short walk down to the beach.

We were in this cute little cafe yesterday. The chicken piri piri was delicious. Freshly squeezed orange juice, the best I've tasted. A view to die for. Brilliant service.

Stopped for a drink after a walk from the old town and up the escalators. Polite and friendly staff here and he was quite busy especially after we had sat down. I just drank cider and enjoyed the view although my parter had loaded potatoes, tuna mayo and cheese. Which kept her quiet for 10/15 minutes so I'm guessing she... More

My first time to this lovely bar/restaurant. The staff, especially Paolo are very friendly and helpful, and no request is too much trouble. The food is excellent, and very fresh,if you have any dietry needs they will try to accommodate them. Highly recommended.

The food is quality and delicious, especially the coffee!! One of the workers, Paulo, is one of the friendliest people I have met and gives great recommendations for local places. We ate here four times during our two day stay. Awesome view of beach!

We had lunch there several times (" Chicken the Portugese way"). In one word, delicious. Very nice staff too. A very good place to see the world pass by and to come back to. Margriet Giel.
