A beautiful location. The food is interesting, a varied menu with a good range of prices, depending on what you want to spend and how hungry you are. The restaurant's clientele is quite captive, as it's located on its own at the far end of the island, with amazing sea views, so who wouldn't want to stop there? There's a lovely terrace, and the amenities are very good. Staff are friendly but not quick to attend to your order, so be prepared to take your time and wait. I've been here in the past too, and found the same each time.

The restaurant is right next to the beach looking over the southern tip of the island. Good food and service. Recommended.

This fish soup was highly recommended and guess what ?? It's spot on hearty portions though unless you are absolutely ravenous you can share this with a partner! Would recommend all versions of the fish soup as we tasted all of them! I liked the squid one best!

This is where the guy who rented my boyfriend and I a Twizy recommended we charge it midway through our afternoon of exploring. I did wonder whether he was related to the owner or something, as he seemed insistent on us buying something and not just sitting in the car park, a piece of advice we were glad we took as we ended up eating the most amazing seafood spaghetti. We had a couple of beers too, it cost around £30 and we left with full stomachs and a full battery ready for some more traffic light hunting (don't bother, there aren't any). The setting is lovely, right by the sea, and if the weather is clear enough you can see Madeira. We could've sat there all afternoon had we not had the vehicle to return. We walked back one evening for a drink and the place was full of locals, which is always a good sign.
