“Lovely Food and Friendly Staff”
Reviewed 13 June 2014 via mobile

9 of us went there after being recommended to try the place. It's a hidden gem the food was excellent. Monk fish kebabs or the Fillet millignon with tiger prawns is a must try for everyone. Staff are excellent and the setting is amazing

“Delicious Cataplana!”
Reviewed 26 May 2014 via mobile

Beautiful setting overlooking Praia Benagil, beautiful restaurant and delicious fresh fish. We had a Cataplana, a traditional Portuguese fish stew, which included huge pieces of white fish, prawns and other shellfish with potatoes and a tomato base. Absolutely delicious and enormous, we had one between two and I think it could have easily fed three, if not four, people.

Staff were lovely, highly recommended.

“a hidden gem”
Reviewed 17 May 2014

Beautifully set on the hill overlooking Benegil beach. Fantastic fresh wild fish on display as we entered. I had mussels to start, absolutely delicious. For my main I went for a small sea bass. Filleted at my table by our friendly server, it was cooked to perfection ... i could taste the quality of the fish as each bite melted in the mouth. Great wine, great relaxed atmosphere. Fantastic food amazing view!

“The name says it all”
Reviewed 5 May 2014

I hate fish with a passion, yet this place, which majors in it, is still one of my favourites in the area.
Being honest, my choice from the menu is very limited, but what I can eat is beautifully cooked and well presented. Try to get an outside table, overlooking the harbour/beach.
