The location is lovely and the interior of the restaurant is bright and welcoming, the food is a bit hit and miss unfortunately. Our fish was served in a very heavy batter which ruined what was actually fresh and tasty fish. Service was quite slow. Desserts are good and the wine list is extensive.

After a long time, we have been there twice last month. The location is fantastic and the simple and nice decoration gives you the feeling to be part of the famous "Guincho" beach. You have a nice sea view from all tables. The service is excellent, very friendly and efficient. The menu is interesting and you'll find a good value... More

Visiting this tourist trap for lunch. A total disgrace - poor food served with poor service ! We had fish soup ... no taste, little fish, plenty of macaroni (!!!) and served luke warm. Melon with ham was served as a brick-size slice of melon (hardly cleaned) with some ham on top. Garlic shrimps were ok in texture, but salted... More

I visited this restaurant with my colleagues, the prices are high but this worth every penny! Amazing sea food and finish, and the desert was so tasty... The service is also very good.

We arrived for dinner and were sat by the window. For starters we had a new plate on the menu which is black chickpeas with "bacalhau", it was superb and from what we were told a rarity as these black chickpeas are scarce and hard to find. The main course was Robalo in a bread crust which was also excellent.... More

The nice seaview and the beach cottage ambiente is still there, but some changes aren't positive. No more allinclusive menu (3 different set menus 75/85/120, all without wine just "coffee" is in this deal), before the allinclusive menu was 98 for 2 persons, which was ok. The stuffed sapateira-crab was nice, the fish in saltcrust was ok..... but nothing to... More
