We can see this restaurant from our hotel room, not exactly a beach bar but on the beach next to the Salgados nature reserve. I went on a guided walk around the reserve and we came back to the hotel ( half board) via the beach past this restaurant. We only wanted a small lunch as we were booked into... More

This is a great beach, one of the best for me is just to crowded in summer to come to, as so the restaurant, service is great in a relaxed way, great shrimps for starter, a crab and the best anchovie of a kilo that you can find, if you don't know it, is from the family of the sea... More

Lovely place to have food and drink even on a rainy day. Set right in Salgados Beach next to the nature reserve. We loved it. Not cheap but nice food

I visited with my partner without booking and we were given a nice table by the window with the view on the beach. The staff was very kind and the food that we ordered really really nice. The fish that we had was very well prepared, a little above the average fish restaurants that we tried during our holidays in... More

OS Salgotdos restaurant It is located just a short walk from the Vidamar Hotel in Salgotdos and is situated overlooking the sea. One of only two independent restaurants within walking distance of the hotel. This restaurant majors on fresh fish and has a great selection. There is also a reasonable selection of others items on the main menu. For Starters... More

Visited this restaurant yesterday after the god reviews and was not disappointed with the food or the lovely location but the service was really poor! We were served by 3 different waiting staff none of which seemed a bit interested in us or our eating experience. This is so unusual in Portugal where staff are usually friendly, efficient and seem... More

Gave this restaurant the "honour" of our last night of the hols and it didn't really live up to expectations. Its a lovely spot, with lots of efficient staff, but the food/cooking was a bit ordinary. We had booked and they had given us a lovely table location. Like all restaurants in the area it had on several TVs and... More

The restaurant is on the beach and the setting is beautiful. Service is good. The prices are high and my fish was over cooked. To be honest it was the over cooked fish and extremely high prices which is the reason for the average rating. I think one pays for the view and not necessarily the food which is unfortunate...
