The food took ages to come, and when it came my soup and cheese toast were both cold. The food didn't come all at the same time. They didn't bring enough glasses. On the plus side, the staff is friendly and nice.

It's a nice restaurant - they were very kind to us with our two year old. It's convenient to the Centre of town and the food is good. Nice view of the estuary.

We had two meals at this restaurant during our stay and they were both excellent. The service was great, attentive, but not intrusive and the setting is lovely. Would definitely recommend.

Local prices mean that this place is a catch, right on the seafront with beautiful views you can get a burger for 6Euros or an omlettte for 4 Euros! Had cocktails and hot drinks at night, local beer is approx 1.50 euros for a half draught. Ask for English menu if you dont speak Portuguese, order with the numbers, some... More

I always come here in August. Mainly in the evening. I love the surroundings, the spacious feeling and the atmosphere.

It is ridiculously cheap for a lunch time snack and something for the whole family. In the evening it is a greta place to meet with friends before you head on to the... More

Happened here by chance but a very pleasant surprise: fresh chicken salad (and paste is right, but it is chicken shredded in a creamy dressing), fast and friendly service and water views - what more could you ask for?

The wine started at about €9.50 a bottle so we asked is it nice......no said the waitress, but the €14.50 bottle is not as... More

It was August admittedly, but not that busy. There were six of us. We didn't order more complicated dishes as we were told there could be a 40 minute wait, but ended up waiting much longer. Good location, but I wouldn't return.
