Nice with pick up at hotel. Very nice atmosphere. Shrimps with garlic and a superb pato negro jamon. Nice Espetada pork just a bit dry, goat really juicy. Different but good.

Wonderful meal! I tried the codfish based on TripAdvisor reviews, and my wife took the salmon... our plates came very quickly...the waiter virtuously filletted my site's salmon, and posed my meal on a table warmer... We both enjoyed every bite of our meals Warmly recommended!

Excellent restaurant if you go to Cabo da Roca. Beautiful place and amazing food. Great service, the quality/price ratio is very very good. I strongly recommend this place even if you don't go to the Roca.
