But a good welcome! the food was cooked fresh to order and very tasty. you can watch the fishermen, also,people watch. would go again in a heart beat.

“The only place to eat on the beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2014 via mobile

Amazing, amazing location and views. A small but precise menu, seafood, chicken etc. Just what you want. Great staff - like a portugese surf shack! Have the sardines, local and beautiful.

“Excellent ingredients beautifully cooked”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 April 2014

We went here on a cool early April evening not expecting wonderful things ! The fresh sea bass was outstanding! Along with it I had the algarve salad , which was composed of the most ripe and delicious tomatoes , onions and grilled peppers! My husband had rice to accompany it. We had a bottle of the house wine , a snip at €10 , followed by two espressos! A remarkable meal at a very good price! We shall return. By the way the sea view was also superb!

“2nd home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 December 2013 via mobile

This is by far the best place to go and sit back and watch the world go by. Easy place to get used to, too used to really. Nothing bad to say about it. The staff are great. The chef has been there 24 years. His helper 17 years. Manel, Carlos and Anita are the A Team.. The food is everything you need from a beach bar. And the views are something that money just any buy. A must visit if ur within a petrol tanks distance for an afternoon.
