“Lunch meal”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014

Miserablle waiteress, waiter was good, asked if we needed help. With the boning of the fish. Had to pay for bread, tiny tin of fish paste, olives and carrots, food was freshly coked on BBQ and tasty but to pay for the extras without knowing was bad, what should have been a average price lunch was escalated by the hidden extras. Setting ok over the estuary but not outstanding

“Amazing fish, service not so much”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2014 via mobile

Went to Sueste last week, great looking restaurant, it wasn't too busy, got a table straight away. Must say that the fish that I got was definitely the nicest i have ever tasted! Lovely gentleman cut the bones out in front of us, he was a funny character. The lady that served us was running around like headless chicken, anytime we asked her for something she didn't look impressed. We asked for a salad to go with the fish but we never got it. The beer took quite a while to arrive too... Overall it's a nice spot, great food, but if it's in anyway busy I would avoid the place. Cause at the time when I went there it wasn't hectic and still there was no organisation I'm the place.

“Great sunset and great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2014 via mobile

Really enjoyed this place and even though the actual location is not great you do get fresh food well cooked, great service and a wonderful sunset. After a previous experience a o barril this reminded us what the food should look and taste like. Well done.

“Busy even in winter!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 April 2014

On the quayside at Ferragudo, fish cooked on the BBQ outside.
Large glass doors so you can watch the ships, fishing boats coming and going. Patio heaters when it is really cold!
Very friendly staff, happy to explain local dishes.
Very good Piri Piri Prawns, clams etc.
Visited twice this winter holiday for lunch, always busy, welcoming and a good mix of locals and foreigners.

“Good fresh fish, but some fishy service too maybe ?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 March 2014

Sueste seems to be one of Ferragudo's best waterfront fish restaurants serving fresh produce. On arrival we were shown a well stocked fish cabinet and had it explained that not being the sardine season, we were probably best advised to let them serve us the catch of the day. As it happened that ended up being Stone Bass, which had been frozen. Notwithstanding, it fried up very nicely and was served with boiled potatoes and a green salad. The staff de-boned it at the table and we were very happy with what we had.

Service was most attentive and we heard quite a bit of anecdotal colour about Jose Mourinho's house on the hill and other celebrity diners etc. The only slight reservation was that the catch of the day seemed to be the most expensive fish and the staff constantly brought us more wine without it being requested. Maybe just very thoughtful service, but ever so slightly pushy...
