“Really nice location but such bad service!”

Really big restaurant with a lovely vew over the ria formosa. As soon as we arrived the service was quite poor: the waiters were running around like headless chickens and no one bothered to show us a table. After several attemps to be seated a waiter pointed out a table and told us to sit there if we wanted to, almost doing us a big favour! We ordered the oysters that were really fresh, and the seafood cataplana was also quite nice although a bit expensive (40€) for what it was. The steak was terrible and half of it was sent back. It's a shame, because the location is really nice, but overall service was terrible. Definitely will not be going back.

Razor-clam rice is a typical shellfish dish in Algarve, Portugal.
Here we had an exquisite version, quite delicious.
We also had oysters and grilled sea bass that were fine.
The deserts were regional receipts from Algarve, well performed.
The restaurant is over the Ria Formosa, and the view is beautiful.

The location is idyllic, next to Ria Formosa and in a very quiet spot. Cooking is rustic and unfussy, relying on the quality of the ingredients. Service is attentive and informal. Prices are a little on the high side in comparison to nearby alternatives.

We went there recommended by some friends and they were right. We had dinner outside in the terrace by the lagoon, an excellent location to see the night fall and the stars. The staff is sympathectic and helpful. We had a shellfish rice that was excellent, in fact all the sea food looked really great.

Personnel was nice and helpful, view of the lagoon amazing, fish super fresh and skillfully prepared and prices affordable (coming from Switzerland). 4 adults with 3 children, we paid 140 €.
