Don't like leaving bad reviews as I'm a pretty positive guide! But we had a really frustrating time here. Beautiful village and the restaurant came highly recommended. However, we waited for 25 minutes at the front of the restaurant - with a few other people...More

Very good food, especially the fish. Good staff members. In the summertime the best is to arrive early or prepare to wait a while. A place to visit by everyone.

What a lovely little dining experience! This place is a little secluded and totally relaxed. While we were waiting quite a while for our food to arrive, it was worth waiting for.

Always crowdy, a stunning view towards it's island beach is a great evening. Good cuisine only service a little confusing due difficulty to work around tables. With small children, try an early dinner. Anyway, make sure you reserve in advance. A must in St.East Algarve.
