We took a villa nearby in September 2018 and ate here several times. The staff were friendly, the ambience was great whether seated inside or outside and the food quality was excellent. Make sure you book I advance - they get busy.

We have visited this restaurant on several occasions and have always received a warm welcome from the efficient and friendly staff. A beautiful modern restaurant with lovely interior design and decor, great menu and wine list. Try the Tomahawk steak, absolutely delicious.

Hi Rachel, Normally off season in Portugal is Nov~Feb. If you are going before or after Feb it will be open. But if you are there, make sure to have dinner there. You won't regret.
