Right on the Mareta beach, there is a smart restaurant upstairs and a less formal patio, cafe/ grill downstairs. We loved the view, Vinho verde and salads. A perfect respite from the sun and sand at mid day.

Very fond memories brought us back to this ideally situated spot. Normally I am all over value and food quality and would tend to ignore postings on service as everyone has different expectations and I personally am not so worried. Until today! Bored rather than rude, but not at all interested. Ages to get drinks. Altogether very poor. Food was... More

Food was good (especially fresh fish) but overpriced compared to the majority of our meals. You clearly pay for the spectacular view! We sat on terrace and watched the surfers, a perfect afternoon.

Our second visit. It has changed. Service is bordering on being rude. We felt like we just wanted a light lunch. They were not pleased. Tried to sell expensive fish and a couvert. Quality of food we had was OK. Our son ordered a burger. We had to send it back as cold inside and not cooked. In fairness though,... More

Found this amazing looking place by the sea. We went to the terrace. Nothing happened for at least 10 minutes even though the staff saw us. Then we heard another customer ask for service and the staff casually explained that yeah, they were not serving on the terrace and that we should go upstairs. So we went upstairs. Food was... More

I cannot comment on the food, as we didn't eat, but I have to leave a positive review, as the owner/manager was so kind to us. We had spent a couple of hours on the beach with our 2 three years olds, and were planning on picnic-ing, with my parents in law. Unfortunately it was 33* in the sun, and... More

Went for lunch at this restaurant a few days ago and was delighted by the quality of food and an excellent menu. Furthermore, the service was friendly, efficient and attentive to our needs. Far better in every respect than the other beach side restaurant.

Best meal so far in the western Algarve. Beef excellent, also Portuguese steak and sea bream , going back in a few days. Great lunchtime venue. Should be number one.

Amazing fresh fish. Sole and Seabass incredible. Service a little slow but views and food are worth it.

We sat down stair to have lunch bar snack type but upstairs was the full blown restaurant after having a look it was a lovely setting for a restaurant. I... More
