Myself and 6 other friends stayed in a villa near Praia Grande and we stumbled across it accidentally (as it is kind of tucked away!) and we were glad that we did! We visited twice; the first time was for an evening meal and we were given a complimentary glass of port afterwards. We again went the next day for lunch and their chips were amazing! The service was friendly and very welcoming, we were sat on a table outside so we could enjoy the view and the sun. A 5 star local dining experience perfect for tourists I believe!

We stayed at the Sao Rafael Atlantic hotel and wanted a local restaurant to dine out and found this one aprox 7 minutes walk away ( turn left out of the hotel and you can't miss it). The owner is very attentive and the food is terrific. My wife said it is the best spag bog she has ever tasted, and the steak is to die for, and i know because i am a butcher. You can sit on the balcony and look over the sea, give it a go, especially if you are staying at the nearby hotel. Dave

Having seen the restaurant a couple of times on my way to the beach, we thought we would give it a try, but to be honest, thought it would be quiet as it was late in the season.

Very wrong... It was very busy, and having eaten there, can see why!

The owner greeted us like friends and we were made to feel welcome all evening.

The starters were lovely. Simple but packed with flavour. I went for pâté with breads bring chosen by family.

Mains were perfect! Can thoroughly recommend the 'surf and turf'. Don't be put off by the 80s name, this was a decent piece filet, cooked perfectly (rare) and a decent grilled prawn. Sauce complemented the whole dish.

Desserts were all home made... Try the bananas! Yummy!

When the bill came... Very reasonable considering the amount we had... We were also given a liqueur each and some biscuits... Which the house dog loved too!

We will definitely be going back.

Friendly manager, most welcoming we ordered sea bass however when our food arrived our fish was so fresh the head and tail still on- I am a boneless foodie person. The Manager did get the chef to fillet my fish but was not the same however my partner said the fish was excellent! Would visit again and ask for fillet fish next time.
