We had promised that we would start our third visit to the region with a meal out and arriving on Good Friday glad that we had booked. The restaurant is very charming with three distinctive rooms. The staff are very good and we choose off the menu with a starter and then a sharing main course plate. The waiter advised... More

Great fish at reasonable prices. Outstanding wine list at modest prices. Friendly service despite being VERY busy on a Sunday lunchtime in April. The position is nothing to write home about in a quiet back street, but very well worth a visit.

We walked to this restaurant and found the whole street was torn up, blocked with heavy equipment and workmen. Not a great beginning. Then we finally found the inauspicious entrance, walked in without a reservation on a Tuesday night about 6:45pm, not knowing they didn't open until 7:30pm. We hadn't thought it would be a problem but wow, they were... More

We ate here with our hiking tour group and were impressed with the ambiance and expertly prepared Portuguese cuisine. The mixed green salad with fresh cheese, bread salad, black pork, sea bass, and seared tuna were truly amazing, and followed by equally amazing desserts. We were so impressed that we returned the next night, reordered most of the same dishes,... More

Beautiful restaurant with top quality food. Ate there 2 nights in a row since we thought any other place in town would be a disapointment on the second night in town.

Very lucky to get a table for two on a February Friday night off-season. Our waiter did a great job serving us in a timely manner. My wife had the Peixe Galo and I had Arroz de Ameijoa. Pre meal we had olives and bread and a bottle of vinho verde. Total was €60. Live music begins after 10. We... More

Recently a small group of women travellers had the great pleasure of having our noon meal at this establishment. We were initially invited to a selection of appetizers in the front bar/pub. The restaurant has the atmosphere and ambience of yesteryear, complete with a roaring fire in the original stone fireplace. Excellent wines accompanied the local and completely "homemade" food....

Very Nice place to go to! We had a lovely diner and the service was great. A lot of wines to choose from and the atmosphere was warm & cosy. It really feels like home.

Very nice spot in Milfontes, a lot to choose from the menu, great food, should be nice to have a sommelier to help with so many wine references. Good service too.

We made a reservation for 19:30 and thus were the first couple. This meant that the staff had time to explain things to us. We went to their fish display and ended up with 2 dishes that weren't on the English menu - monkfish and shrimp skewer with mixed vegetables and fillets of a big fish with tomato rice both... More
