Had a very nice meal here. He had the "covers" which was bread, pate and olives. This is quite filling so we decided against a starter. For main course we had grilled sardines and fresh sea bream. Both were very good. The sardines were big and meaty and the sea bream was tasty. The wine was good. The service was... More

One of the nicest restaurants in the area. Good location right on the front overlooking the sea. Good choice of dishes and friendly staff. Always have a bottle of the house red, excellent. Always have to pay a visit anytime we are there.

Ate a late lunch/early dinner on the off season. It was very quiet but nevertheless we were welcomed. The food was delicious and the portions generous. We ordered the Portuguese steak and crab omelet, both hearty and well prepared.

This was one of the few well patronised restaurants at Armacao de Pera out of season, and after visiting it was not hard to see why, with excellent service and reasonably priced food

We ate here for dinner, the food was very good, beautifully presented with excellent service. On hot days most people eat outside, but they are missing the really great interior, it is air conditioned and if you can get a window seat the view is not to be missed. There was the most amazing sunset when we were there which... More

Very good restaurant on nice location near the beach. Don't be in a hurry as waiting times can be long. The staff could be a little more friendly.
