Excellent location right on the beach with spectacular views of the ocean and mainland from the patio. Ordered the famous Praia Sardines accompanied with lovely potatoes for lunch. Though I am not a fan of the dish, the location was the best place to try this cultural dish. The service was very good and much appreciated.

Fresh fish cooked to perfection, a beautiful view and excellent service. An extensive wine list with staff that are knowledgeable. What more can we ask for?

In a wonderful situation literally overlooking Olhos D'Agua beach we have found this to be a great place to eat, the staff remembered us last year from our previous years trip. We called again this year but it was being renovated so can't comment on the final work being done but hopefully we can try again next year.

We visited based on an excellent meal we had last year at La Cigale. This just didn't live up to the memories. The view was as good but the food was just not up to scratch - the Piri-Piri chicken was served last year with a delicious dressed salad, golden fries and had a taste that was out of this... More

Wonderfully situated premises with great views of the beach area, snack food ok and not over priced but apart from the lovely John (ex Passaro Azul) the service could be more welcoming and a bit friendlier. Lacks a bit of ambiance.

Go elsewhere - unless you are hell bent on the views! Having read the reviews I knew that it might be a bit mixed and my visit one evening confirmed it. Very abrupt, grumpy waiter - seemed so bored and fed up - almost that you were an inconvenience to him - we ordered starters, a bottle of average wine... More
