Ate here with a family group recently and was not disappointed.
The food is very good and all rated this restaurant highly.
Ate the Clam Cataplana which was very good and probably enough for 2 people.
Staff are very friendly and helpfull.
So good that we returned in the evening for late drinks. Could not have been made more welcome.
Recommend.

The gorgeous Algarve in the Alentejo region of Portugal is a haven for seafood lovers, and The Clipper is a jewel along the promenade of hotels and condos overlooking the Atlantic.
But first, ignore the youngish make server who tried to cover up his ignorance with what he thought were clever remarks: Asked what was “Shrimps Mozambique,” he said it was the name of a place. Asked what was “Tuna by Chef Chico,” he said it was the name of the cook. Duh.
Happily Manuel noticed our falling faces and took over taking our order. Despite having his arm in a sling due to a Segway accident, he smiled while explaining how each meal was prepared, whole or fillet, and what aromatics went with it.
My grilled tuna was perfectly grilled with boiled veggies on the side. Sister’s curry shrimp over rice and brother’s breaded sole we’re plum and juicy. Hubby and brother’s grilled pork hit the spot. Each entree cost less than 15 euros, a steal for us San Francisco Bay Area residents.
We were extremely satisfied we recommended he restaurant to fellow group travelers. Like us, several of them returned for a second meal before heading to our next town.
On our second visit we were rewarded almond liqueur, presumably for filling the tables by our good recommendation. That’s class. Worth a return next time we’re in the Algarve.

Enjoyed the food and service here so much, that we dined at the Clipper three times in a week. We had a three course meal on each occasion and were never disappointed with the quality, so I have no hesitation in recommending the seabass and the sole. The service was friendly and humorous.

We ate here twice on a recent stay in Armacao de Pera.
The first time we all enjoyed our meal. The second time my husband’s meal was cold.
The staff are great. Very friendly and attentive. Beware soft drinks are expensive. More than wine or beer!

Had a really lovely meal here - simple seabass grilled to perfection and the most amazing chips. Great friendly service too
