The restaurant is situated on a cliff above the ocean with a great view on Ponta do Sol and the ocean itself. The service is very good and the coffee delicious. We could not try the food because the kitchen is closed between 4pm and...More

The view from here it’s quite amazing :) it’s better to go at sunset. Also the food it’s very good - I recommend the limpets+ marinated octopus (as a starter) and the tuna+ squid&prawns as main dish.

I had a terrible experience in this restaurant. I had cow meat which had a fish taste. The service was terrible and very unfriendly. Not a single 'You are welcome' nor a 'thank you' or even half a smile, for my many 'please' and 'thank...More

The service was very good and staff keen to ensure we were looked after. Our food, however, was disappointing. A fish dish was extremely overcooked and the steak dish a little confusing. The coffee was very good.

We came with the suggestion of our guide book, it turned to be a great experience! We got a perfect table to watch the sunset and we ordered the fish there with white wine. Service was fast and helpful, would definitely recommend anyone passing by.

This is a perfect place to enjoy to sunset. It is part bar and part restaurant. I have no idea about the food as we only had a drink.
