We stayed at the resort and ate here several times. Great seafood selection and amazing view. The adjacent sandy playground was awesome for our kids.

So many Sagres restaurants are closed for the holidays or renovation mid-winter, not As Dunas. We found the freshest of fish and shellfish. While not currently on the menu, chef prepared Cataplana de Marisco (Portuguese fish and seafood stew) for us. Delicious. Jeni had mentioned that she was looking for freshly baked portuguese tarts, however, the Cataplana sated our hunger. The... More

Great fish restaurant for a late lunch into early evening drinks. There's a playground and trampoline visible from the window so the children can play away safely while waiting for their meal. There's a lovely relaxed vibe and staff courteous as always.

This restaurant is at Martinhal resort. It's a lovely restaurant offering a vast array of fresh fish. The staff are very friendly and great with kids. The restaurant has numerous high chairs for children and a special menu which offers salt free food for a variety of different ages of children. I had sardines on a couple of occasions which...

Incredibly slow service. We sat down at 6.45, ordered no starters and didn't get served our meal until 8.30pm by which time our kid was very tired. His meal never even turned up so he ended up eating bread and butter because he wasn't interested in any of the buffet foods (pasta bolognese and chicken). The food we got was... More

Has the potential to be so good - view, location, clientelle, menu and so on - but let down by useless staff. A 45 min wait for the bill? When the place is virtually empty? Not for the first time either...

Description
As Dunas commands an enviable location overlooking the beach at Martinhal Beach Resort & Hotel and offers a tempting lunchtime menu, serves snacks during the afternoon and dinner in the evening. But it is the wide selection of just-landed fish and seafood that the restaurant is renowned for. A veritable ocean harvest is available and cooked and presented in a typical Algarve manner. Special ‘catch-of-the-day’ options further enriches the choice.
