Perfectly cooked sea bream with a salad and fries with close family. Service great and the view too, one day we will return with the rest of the family to try the clam and fish stew.

Ideal place to eat while looking out at the beautiful beach of Praia da Rocha. We shared a shrimp and monk fish kebab which probably wasn't the freshest of fish but was still nice and very good value for money
