We arrived late for our booking but were seated quickly. We both chose the sea bass which was delicious. One of the best we have had this holiday. Chips were tasty although could have been a bit browner looked a tad undercooked but actually tasted fine. Glass of wine was good. The atmosphere was really good, busy and buzzy but not mega noisy. Lovely location on the waterfront. Overall great meal and atmosphere and fair price

We were holidaying at Vale do Lobo and ended up here by accident (lost). The location is great - right on the beach, the meals we ordered were perfect and when we ordered wine, our waiter (Santos) recommended a slightly more expensive bottle - Esporao Chardonnay, if I could buy that at home it would become my favourite white wine.
The following night, on my recommendation, we came back in a party of 10 and all diners gave it the thumbs up, we will definitely be returning on my next trip.

Very good place to watch the sunset.
It is a typical beach restaurant. Plenty of fish.
I did not like finding cats strolling between the tables, including inside the room. But maybe it's just me who do not like cats.
The food was good.

I was lucky enough to be invited to a friends after wedding party, all guest in White, we were looked after superbly at this beautiful venue overlooking the beach, great food, atmosphere and wonderful cocktails, roof top bar to finish off the evening.
