We had the seafood shishkebab with lightly cooked monkfish, scallops and shrimp, great but somewhat expensive, and the tournedos Marsala, perfectly pink inside. Service attentive and pleasant, somewhat old fashioned environment.
Quality average, prices too high especially fish dishes and expensive for Algarve compared to other restaurants.
Found a hair in the dish, but was disputed by the staff! Not recommended.More

Rice with Portuguese Rice sounds simple or boring.
I don't know if it is simple to make but I do know it's not boring. It is absolutely delicious !
So is the Monkfish as is the Rabbit.
Not a bad item on the menu.
Having been disappointed by a highly rated local restaurant last night we were concerned about the quality of Sagres fare.......we needn't have worried.
When we arrived this evening at Vila Velha without a booking the staff were very helpful and were friendly throughout. The food...More
