Description: Izzy's offers you the ultimate beach bar experience. Set right on the beach at Vale Do Garrao, in the heart of the Algarve's Golden Triangle, as a destination restaurant, there is nothing to compare. With amazing panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean, a laid back atmosphere, great food and friendly service, this is a memorable place. Customers return time and time again to soak up the atmosphere and order their favourite dishes. You can enjoy the Izzy's experience at lunch, dinner or just for drinks. Sundowners at Izzy's are something to savour! Live music is played on Saturday and Sunday afternoons - making it a magical place to relax at the weekend. The Izzy's menu is a clever blend of fish and seafood specialties and much loved Portuguese and International cuisine. The beach side location and imaginative kids menu, also makes Izzy's a great family experience.

We had a lovely meal at Izzy's, much more relaxing than neighbouring Julia's. The owner was very customer friendly, heard my father discussing the seafood pasta he fancied but worried about it being too spicey for him so he offered to cook it with no spice at all.
Portions were generous . Not cheap but then none of them are by the beach.

Has a great location by the beach (which it shares with 5 other similarish beach type bars/restaurants) - the decor is in the shabby chic style - prices seemed a little higher than the neighbouring restaurants but given that it is in Quinta da lago (up market resort) not out of kilter for the resort - in line with UK/Ireland city prices, but expensive compared to other Algarve resorts, as is Quinta as a whole....but guessing by the quality of the cars parked outside that is not going to be a problem for most of the clientele.
The food itself was OK, to me more of a restaurant for its location, chic clientelle and decor than the quality of the food - basically to see and be seen.
In our case we had a disappointing experience as having booked for 21.00 we weren't seated till 21.45 and it was another 30 mins plus before our starters arrived (after several promptings) - in effect we bumped by the restaurant for those that were either regulars, more famous or wealthier than us - depending where you fit or not into these categories might determine your view or experience.
We also ate a couple of times at Julia's (next door) - whilst decor wise not as chic, the service and the food was marketdly better - and whilst we had people on surronding tables whom we knew to be millionaires our service and attention by the staff was just the same.

we've been coming here since it opened and know the staff like family. Rory will always try his best to fit you in and the food is very good. Its always fully booked on Sunday afternoons so I would advise that you book well in advance and I mean months not weeks! Location is Brill and the band that play at the weekends just adds to the great atmosphere.

Thank buttsy

My wife and I plan our visit to the algarve to include Sunday lunch at Izzy's. Always looked after by our favourite waiter Rory, a lovely table for two close to the beach awaits us on arrival. Excellent food every time followed by dancing to The Business Band. Looking forward to their annual boat trip this weekend. Thanks guys!

I really enjoyed this restaurant. "It is what it is"!! A shack on the beach, but right on the beach. Its the perfect spot to enjoy an easy lunch or dinner. The foods not GREAT, but where it lacks in food, it makes up in location and view.
Great place to enjoy a few drinks in the sun or whilst the sun sets. Fun atmosphere.
