Food and ambience

This is one of a string of restaurants on the beach just outside the center of town that don't actually have addresses (as far as I know). Others of its ilk are included in major guide books, like Foder's. I'd really like to give this restaurant a review because it was amazing food, fantastic atmosphere, and wonderful, English-speaking staff (a rarity on the island). Thanks!

We went by for lunch around 2pm, so it was pretty empty. Waitress wasn't very polite, food was only ok (we split the chicken, which was a little rubbery, and some fries). Drinks were good. The view is definitely the best part. We heard good...More

Good service and reasonable prices. We ate here three times during our stay and loved the view. They have a barbecue night, which we had twice, and which my meat eater companion considered very good.

We enjoyed several hours on the beachfront at this restaurant.. so relaxing. It was a Wednesday night and we enjoyed delicious BBQ beef and chicken skewers. Other guests enjoyed fish, steaks, lamb or prawns.. excellent!

This is by far the most relaxing beach side cafe experience I've ever had. Great drinks, good BBQ, and awesome vibe. The staff was also very attentive, friendly and spoke multiple languages (Portuguese, English, Spanish).

We came for the bbq night (mon, weds, sat) and had a table on the beach. Great caipirinhas, freshly bbq’d fish and you could choose other skewers too. Friendly staff who spoke good English. Would definitely recommend.

We stopped here for smoothies and sat on the beach and took in the views. Smoothies were good. We were tempted to stay for food but it seemed quite expensive.
