This was the most expensive restaurant we ate at during our stay, it was not the best value for money but the atmosphere service and food made it worth the money. The rabbit was very good ,nicely cooked and full of flavour.

I had the Portugese specialities and was not impressed. My wife had salads and these were rather dull. Comparing with other restaurants in this price class in Portugal we certainly do not rate this restaurant as top of the range.

We arrived without a reservation but were able to get a table on the side enclosed porch area of the restaurant. The service was excellent and the food was fantastic as well. I highly recommend this spot in Sagres! Try the rabbit dish - delicious!

The selection, freshness and taste of the seafood here is outstanding. Fresh fish options are brought to the table for selection. The fish kabob was incredible. My friend had the John Dory which was tender and flavorful. The bruschetta and grilled peppers were beautifully done....More
