The terrace offers a great view over the harbour. Staff was very kind. We had fish and meat and both was very very good. Not the cheapest place in Sal Rei but it's worth it!

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...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.
