Decent place for family lunch, nice view of the sea and cliffs if there aren't cars parked out front. Good piri piri and kids options. Friendly staff, a good experience all round

Nice view of the sea as the name suggests. Slightly on the pricey side and they were running out of desserts because of it being the end of the season. That said, the lobster stew was delicious. Staff very friendly and like a lot if places seems family run. The baker was delivering fresh breads etc while we were there, which looked good.

I spent a week exploring the Algarve with my partner and had a late lunch here, attracted by the outside terrace with great views over the Atlantic. Parking is easy as ther is a large gravel carpark to the side of the restaurant building. Loving fresh tuna, we both ordered the tuna steal with a tomato sauce. It was perfectly cooked and covered in a robust sauce and served with boiled potatoes and a salad garnish. It was perfectly edible and pleasant, though not memorable. I prefer a chunk of tuna, served rare (like a fillet steak) rather than a thin 'escalope'

The view was great and really added to the enjoyment of the meal until two different parties parked their cars right in front of the terrace, despite the carpark being almost empty. As we had almost finished our meal I didn't make a fuss, but we didn't linger for dessert and coffee.

I suggest that the restaurant owners rope off the area in front of the terrace to keep cars away.

The fish is wonderfull and from "the day", so as fresh as you can get.

The Garoupa was amazingly good, however the Espadarte was "so so" . My recommendation isto ask for the fresh fish and have it grilled, Portuguese way :) and there are several option available.

For the desert you have to try the traditional Algarve cake, Tarte de Amendoa

The location is quite nice, by the Mareta beach. The service is fine.
In resume, one of the best options for fish in Sagres.
