Good, fresh seafood (some of it straight from an aquarium if you want) overlooking the beach and sea. We can vouch for the salt cod and the sardines - well cooked with good garnish.

We went to Mar a Vista for my mother's birthday dinner. It was a very special night, the staff even found us a candel to put in her dessert. I recommend this place for a nice seafood dinner. Excellent fish soup.

They managed to fit our party of 6 in without a booking into an already busy restaurant. Friendly, helpful, good choice of meals and a very acceptable house wine. Thanks for a great evening

Went here twice during our 10 day holiday in Sagres first time we had tuna and squid mains very nice and generous portions. We then went back on our penultimate night and shared a pot of monkfish and prawn rice. Absolutely delicious! Fresh, hot and huge portion, mopped up with bread. A lovely way to spend an evening sitting outside... More

The lady looking after our villa recommended this restaurant and we were to disappointed. The fish was beautiful and my ginormous prawns with curry sauce a real winner. The outlook is great and staff very friendly

We went on the recommendation of our hotel ( Mareta View) and had an excellent meal washed down by a superb rose provided by very friendly waiters in reasonable time. The fresh fish cataplana was excellent but the almond tart was even better. The restaurant is classy and has a fantastic view over the sea but fills up quickly so... More

From the restaurant terrace (looking across the car parks) you can see the sea and cliffs of sagres. The tables on the terrace fill quickly as this seems to be a popular lunchtime spot. Service was professional to a point but it was busy and we waited an hour for food (table of four). Not unusual I know but no... More

We came here for lunch with the children, it overlooks the beach and as such has wonderful sea-views. Although quiet when we arrived the terrace quickly filled up for lunch and as it got busier more staff began to appear so service was always prompt. As we had hoped the sea food was fresh, simply cooked and really very good.... More

Fresh fish and vegetables. Nice decoration and friendly service. More pricy than other restaurants in Sagres, but still good value for the money.
