What a find this was only dropped in for a cooling drink midday but discovered that this really was the place where we should be coming for dinner in the evening. Only came the first time to see if the promise really did materialise - it did!! and we were here again the next evening as well! The staff were... More

Stopped by here after a great day at the beach. I had the sardines with boiled potatoes, were absolutely delicious, my lad had the pork with mushrooms, not a scrap left on his plate. Very good value for money and very friendly service

Went for lunch with friends. I had grilled sardines which I thoroughly enjoyed. My friends had fresh sea bass which seemed to go down very well with the aid of a lovely bottle of vinho verde wine. The restaurant is actually on the beach and the views from the table on the terrace were stunning.

If you are at the rocky end of the beach you must try A Rocha for a delicious bite to eat and refreshments! Brothers Francisco and Jose are most welcoming and real characters. We loved loved the banter equally as well as the food! Bom sabor ☀️😎 Alison & Kevin

We made a pit stop here one very hot afternoon and enjoyed the wonderful views and cooling breeze in the shade while we enjoyed a few drinks. A completely relaxing place to visit, the music was great and we stayed longer than we meant to. The food looked good but we'd had a huge and late lunch so can't provide... More

We discovered this bar as we walked along the beach from our hotel and decided to visit one lunchtime for a cooling drink and a snack. So glad we did. We shared a toastie and some fries and enjoyed the location so much we stayed for another drink. Very good service from our waiter and good value for money.

Went here for lunch with my partner. Had calamari, tuna steak and lamb cutlets. Everything was delicious. The service was really friendly & was perfectly situated along the sea front. Only downside was noticed on the bill they charged us for butter to go with our bread. And also for a sardine pate which we didn't ask for anyway. Thought... More
