One of the friendliest restaurants on the sea front, not to mention some of the best fresh seafood around. My girlfriends family have been coming to this restaurant for over 30 years, which certainly says something about it. If you are in the area, this should be top of your list

Joao, beta and George served up an amazing meal. They are located just steps away from the beach and every detail to the meal had passion right from the selection of wine right to the shot of port wine that was given complimentary after the meal. The meal was so good that I'm writing this review from my table at... More

I went to this restaurant last night (Monday, July 11th). I was walking the boardwalk in Praia da Roche checking the menus & this restaurant seemed to have a good variety, had English on the menu & good reviews on TripAdvisor. What a disappointment! I was dining solo & stood for quite some time before a waitress acknowledged my presence.... More

With so many restaurants to choose from we liked the look of this menu as it did not have any pictures of food. The welcome was warm and the service attentive. Good explanation of the dishes and the fresh fish choices were brought to the table. The chefs local knowledge of the fishing was a bonus. We enjoyed the good... More

Great restaurant on the beach in Portimao, Portugal. Relaxed & very friendly atmosphere. Simple but varied menu. I had the Monk fish & Shrimp kebab & local Super Bock beer. Really delicious, reasonable price & my waiter George was so helpful & friendly. There was also fast, free WiFi. A very enjoyable couple of hours.

Been going here for years. A wonderful family run restaurant fronted by brother and sister Paulo and Betta. Nothing is too much trouble and it is a place visitors always return to. Excellent freshly cooked food, good fish selection and a varied good fried menu The Sangria is excellent and always prepared from scratch. Try the white one, it's good.... More

There are quite a number of decent beach side restaurants in this area and after trying this one, on the recommendation of a life guard !, we had a most pleasant lunch. The enthusiastic owner was very keen to point out the advantages his place held over many others and it must be admitted that the quality of the fried... More
