My husband and I had dinner here last night and it was absolutely wonderful! We ordered the sea bass en salt that was the best fish that I’ve had in Portugal! The atmosphere and service were equally as good. We will definitely be back!

The freshest fish I’ve tasted in a long time. The waiter showed us the fish before it was cooked so we could see how fresh it was. It was delectable. Simply served with green beans and potatoes.

The place itself is very beautiful with a great view, the staff is also very friendly. The seafood is good. Although they don't really have a choice of juices if you're going with a child. Other than that everything is great!

We went with a group of 27 and had pre/booked a table. We probably got the best table in the house, right overlooking the stunning coastline. From there we watched the sun setting into the Atlantic. The interior is nice and bright, the staff very...More

Service was a bit slow as the place was quite full. But the view of the hills in the background and the cliffs as the westernmost point of continental europe plunged into the cold and windy Atlantic ocean was superb. In a while our orders...More
