A People Watching Paradise, as you partake of your food. And, when you've had enough, there's the sandy beach and the waves! We left, with a contented feeling. The food was good (fish with faces and bones, but so very fresh) and, to finish off, the superb coffee that's available in Portugal. I had Golden Bream: my friend had the... More

A good stop on a sunny day. Sit on the sand and enjoy fish from the local fishermen whose boats are parked on the sand within a throw of a sardine.

Had an evening meal here, both my wife and I had fish, tuna for her and seabass for me. Really enjoyed the meal and price very reasonable. Good location although it was dark the moon was shimmering off the sea which enhanced the ambience. Worth a try.

Very nice restaurant right on the beach at the "fishermen beach". Great lulas (squid) and seabass. Warm and friendly atmosphere and very reasonable prices.

We have been going here every time we are in Algarve. This place always has a very fresh fish. Service is quick and friendly. If you are seated outside, which is our favored, you are practically on the sand, which adds a very nice authentic touch.

A great little shack restaurant right on the fishermen's beach. A really lovely spot for a late afternoon lunch. Freshest, tastiest sardines you will find. Everything else is good as well, but those sardines are just brilliant. Great value for money too.

This was our second visit to this town as we had stumbled on it a few years ago. This time, we decided a bit of fish for lunch was required and we stopped here. Ok it's not 5star but the view of the fishermen on the beach mending their nets, the children playing in the sand and the general happiness... More
