Highly praised by various guide books we hoped to have a nice evening. Failure. Music was far too loud for a restaurant. Tables at the railing with the best look down and over the old harbour (a splendid excellent view!) were badly lighted. We saw a couple who flashed their mobiles to be able to read the menu. The waiter... More

Our fod was okay but no more than that. We had to wait a long time for it. There was loud and noisy music and when we asked to have it tuned down this was done only for a very sort time.

We were staying on Boa Vista for a week and most of the time this lovely place was closed. Right up on the roof of the building up several flights of stairs when you catch them open the food and hospitality is good. Very atmospheric low lighting and stunning views over the bay at night. Our helpful waiter talked us... More

Absolutely amazing service and stunning views over the harbour. Food average, but very fresh. Delicious tuna dip for the bread. One had a nice tuna, the other a nice chicken.

Great to find such a superb seafood restaurant. Service was second to none... very attentive and informative. The server convinced me to try the barnacles and I'm so glad I did! Grilled lobster was cooked perfectly although I think I'll try it boiled next time. Local liqueurs were shared and enjoyed as well.

Wonderful place with a great view of the bay and harbour. Excellent service: Leu makes you feel like everything is possible. Great Caiperinha and the grilled fish is perfect. Don't forget to request this on beforehand as they have to go catch it during the day! 2 good vegetarian options, with possibility to ask for something extra. The only downside... More

Porton de nos Ilha is a sea-food restaurant in a privilege area of Sal Rei, in Front of Praia Diante's Bay, on the 2nd floor (roof top) with an exeptional view over the ocean. We are knew for our special menu (grilled Lobster, shrimp with mandioc and Banana, garoupa rice and many others), for our service and our sunset cocktail (only in season - 5p.m. to 8p.m.). We will be welcome to receive you and give the best of Boa Vista in the time of a meal.
