Reviewed yesterday NEW

two beautiful terraces where you can eat either seefront (great view but sometimes windy), or on the other side, cozy terrace. Friendly staff and some of the best and fresh fish we ate during our stay in the Algarve. Not the cheapest restaurant (about 50 eu pp for full meal wine and coffee). We had the house wine (white) served... More

We was here for lunch and find the place so typical and nice that we came back in the dinner. Tasty food , excellent view to the sea, asking for outside better.

Went for a dinner with Family. In an single word- Pretentious. The decor is pleasant although tables are too close to one another giving little privacy. Service was good, polite and fast. Food.... Nothing above average and none justifying the price tag. Pasta dishes - nothing special and would serve as anti-pasta more then a main. Garlic bread as a... More

When we arrived at about 7 pm we were a little dismayed to see the sign - live music Fri and Sat ( we had missed this point earlier... More

A while ago I wrote a scathing review of this place. The food was good but the service was appalling and the visit was in general a great disappointment. I swore to never return. However, for some reason I found myself coming back as we were in the neighbourhood and nothing else was open in the area that day. The... More

Our hotel advised this rest. It was a bit too chilly to sit outside, but if you have the option, I'd sit outside. However, I think also inside this resto has a wonderfull cosy feel. Nothing too much, not too old or modern, just perfect. There was a guy playing on his guitar and singing, compliments to this guy. I... More

Excellent sea food, great setting and lovely staff. Even non fish eaters will find someone on the menu. Heading back in May 2017 for birthday celebrations!

We arrived there in the middle of a storm for our Sunday lunch. Very soon there was a power cut but despite this they managed to create a delicious sole and turbot lunch.

We loved this lovely little spot above the beach at Benagil. It's a pretty restaurant with a lovely view, during daylight hours. The freshly grilled John Dory was impeccable as was the portobello stuffed with goat cheese, nuts, and honey. The waitstaff was attentive and readily willing to make modification to one of their entrees to suit our wishes. The... More
