One of our favourite fish restaurants - family service and always very friendly. Pretty much any fish you want and cooked perfectly. The fish stew is great.
an added bonus this year is they now take bookings so you don;t have to be there for 7pm to ensure you get a seat (its a favourite with the locals).

In the center of Quarteira, with fresh fish and with sea food typical dishes. With good quality and a good service, is a place that I recommend. The value is balanced and fair. Reservation needed. Always full

This restaurant is obviously aimed at, shall we say, the wealthier visitor to the area. Surprised other reviewers saw no tourists, clientele was all tourists when we were in, some portuguese, but people on holiday none the less. I imagine they would come from Vale do Lobo and Villamoura rather than Quarteira. This was by far the most expensive meal we had in Quarteira but it was very good, four stars because we had other very good meals at considerably cheaper prices. Tomato salad, monkfish with rice for 2 (huge, would have served 4), bottle of water and bottle of house wine. Couldn't find fault with anything, service very good too, bill E60. Would go back, but only for special occasions, more often if money no object.

First thing that we noticed is that we were the only tourists there, midweek & it was full of locals. The restaurant is quite expensive, but this soon becomes irrelevant when you taste the produce.
I had clams & large prawns as a starter, sole for main followed by the most amazing chocolate mousse. Everything was just so fresh, cooked and seasoned to perfection. I agree with other reviewers comments, the prawns are simply amazing. One of the best, if not best seafood restaurants that have ever been to. Between the 4 of us it worked out at about 55 euro per head. A real gem of a restaurant. My mother-in-law had the crab for main, talked about it for the whole week.
