Really poor service. Chef needs a master class on how to cook veg as it was overcooked and not seasoned. Fish was ok but very expensive. We spend much longer there than expected - kept asking for the bill for 30 minutes!!! I ended up standing in the middle of the restaurants trying to pay and the guy kept saying... More

We had lunch and dinner a couple times during our stay. The service was great, food very good particularly the seafood rice. Yes you wait for this dish to be cooked but is worth the wait.

Service slow to non-existent. Accompanying vegetables very poor and overcooked. Sadly the most expensive but worst meal out we had in a week in the Algarve.

We had fish and steaks which were very very good at a reasonable price. One of the waiters with little English made a mess of my steak, but the waiter MORAIS fixed the situation. Another waiter HIPOLITO was exceptionally helpfull every time he served us. These 2 waiters made an average/good restaurant into a great one.

This great restaurant is near to the indoor fish market. They serve some of the best fresh fish and shell fish to be had in the area. Great views of the beech and sea. Good service. Highly recommended

All of the usual seafood on offer here. It become a little hard to distinguish one from restaurant from another here unless it has some outstanding feature and this one didn't. You can't go wrong with the food, it's the same as everywhere else. I guess if you go during the day you will have a sea view but at... More
