“Best restaurant ever”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

Staff are very friendly and helpful. Always welcomed when we come. Beautiful views, ten steps from the sea. Brilliant fresh local food especially the fish, caught that day, expertly cooked and you can hand pick them yourself if you'd like. If only we could remember the Portuguese for all the home grown fruits from Zea's Fathers garden, delicious things that we've never tasted before but they take time to explain even if they're busy we never feel hurried. We've spent very very many happy hours here and not been thrown out yet, even when we're the last ones to leave as we frequently are! Favourite place in Portugal

“Excellent in Every Way”
Reviewed 17 June 2014 via mobile

If your idea of heaven is eating the best food especially fish as you watch the fishing boats returning from sea this is the restaurant for you. It overlooks a beautiful beach. You will great excellent food, service and the view is free. You get to choose the fish you want cooked fresh of the fishing boat. Lovely homemade desserts if you have any room. Give it a try.

“Wonderful welcome”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

We have been coming to stay in Ferragudo for many years - we began with the usual two week holiday,but now upon retirement we have stretched to a six week break May to July and another four week break in October - without fail we eat out at Restaurante Praia Grande!

Lovely freshly cooked food -that's why you have to wait - especially if or when it is busy- but who cares we're away from home- we don't have any dishes to do, we can just watch the yachts come and go or bob around in the beautiful tranquil bay as we sit and wait - no problem!

Besides the lovely food - we have the wonderful, welcoming, forever smiling Zea and the charming Paulo the owners who ( even when really busy) spare a moment to greet you and for us we have a Portuguese lesson added to the welcome! How can I go on without mentioning the wonderful staff especially the ever entertaining- multilingual Bruno- what a terrific asset he is to this wonderful restaraunt! Nothing is too much trouble and the atmosphere is so relaxed - you won't want to leave - lovely food, lovely people lovely ambiance -perfect!

“A regular, sometimes combined with the market in the town”
Reviewed 17 May 2014

This is one of our favourite restaurants with a fantastic view overlooking the beach. The food is excellent, particularly the fish which is freshly caught, and they display the fish for your inspection.
We normally go here with a number of friends and we always have a wonderful meal. The service is excellent, but not too rushed. Do try the Sea Bass if possible. The house wine is excellent, both red & white. We all had one of the ice cream confections but on a subsequent visit we tried the home made puddings, in fact the owner made up a mixture of them for us - do try them, they are traditional Portuguese and delicious..

“Good food, friendly service”
Reviewed 15 May 2014 via mobile

We love the atmosphere , views and the food at this beachfront restaurant. There is a playground on the beach below the restaurant where children can play in view of their parents. The staff are friendly and the food is fresh. The fish is particularly good.
