“Very popular with tourists”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

We ate at the Clipper one evening because it was always very busy and we didn't want to wander too far from our hotel because we were tired.

We noticed that there were a lot of tourist eating at this restaurant and the menu did reflect this with slightly westernised menu option such as steak or other meats with sauces and served with chips or potatoes etc.

I chose fish and my husband had pork in a mustard sauce which he said was very nice. The waiting staff were very friendly and the restaurant has a very nice atmosphere. If you prefer to eat slightly English style food or fancy a good old steak one then this is the restaurant for you.

It is worth remembering restaurant closes at 10.00pm unlike the Portuguese restaurants in the centre that will stay open until the last person has gone home!

“average”
Reviewed 19 June 2014

The staff were very unfriendly, the food average I had a starter of a prawn cocktail and it was very poor four prawns and small ones.
We thought it was all over priced and uncomfortable.

“ate here three times in a week!”
Reviewed 14 June 2014

Garlic prawns to die for!!!

Also the Fado red wine was fantastic, and we had tried quite a few ropey wines before we came across this one at The Clipper.

Well worth a visit.

“So good we went twice too!”
Reviewed 8 June 2014 via mobile

Lovely location, warm and welcoming surroundings, modern and clean. Waiters were very welcoming. They bring olives, carrots and bread with sardine spread and butter, it was lovely so we found no need to order starters although do charge a few euros each for this. We had streak and tuna cooked to perfection. My son ate from the children's menu. Desserts delicious and my son enjoyed his complimentary kitkat and we our liquors. On the second night they remembered us and where we had sat. We will definitely return if we are in area again.
