Description: Beach bars are a great tradition along the Algarve, but finding something special is really worthwhile. Club Nau is one of those special places, an oasis of excellence. Overlooking, literally, the superb beach of Praia Grande in Ferragudo, you can step off our terrace right on to the beach. It's everything you dreamed a beach would be like, plus some! On Sundays, from 3pm (15:00) there's always live music with local artists, and this makes a lovely atmosphere at Club Nau, we call it 'Magic Sunday', and regardless the weather or the season the place is filled with a great 'party' atmosphere. What could be better, right on the beach, great food and live music. Another plus is our range of the best Portuguese wines, and host Rafael Cavaco or his staff are there to guide you through the wine list. We also stock sparkling wines and great cocktails. Just imagine, sitting on the beach sipping cocktails and perhaps enjoying a great meal if you are hungry. Your dream has come true at Club Nau. Come and find out for yourselves, a great welcome is waiting

“Wow!”
Reviewed 1 September 2013

The place itself is stunning as is the location, which aroused the usual suspicions that this is what we would be paying for rather than the food itself. We needn't have worried as it was sublime. Possibly the best meal we've had in Ferragudo which is saying something considering the stiffness of the competition. My octopus with potatoes and spinach was as perfectly cooked as it was beautifully presented, and my wife's steak on a stone was an experience in itself, a hot slab of granite being brought to the table with a chunk of raw fillet steak and various condiments so you can cut it up and cook it with various levels of seasoning. The only small criticisms would be that the portions were on the small side compared to a lot of places in Ferragudo, and compared with the smaller restaurants the service was not as friendly - though maybe this is to be expected as Club Nau is relatively big and it was very busy. Anyway, the food was so good that you shouldn't let this put you off. We'll definitely be back.

“A bit rushed”
Reviewed 16 August 2013

Good place but felt a little bit they wanted us to leave to get the next people in, the problem with being popular I guess.
