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.

We followed our nose along the Praia Abraão to a gem of a place just steps from the water. Offering a different menu every night, we were fortunate to experience their skewered bbq. Loads of choices for meat and veggie lovers, very generous servings coupled...More

The BBQ (Saturday night) was excellent value, really delicious food and you can choose two different skewers, generously sized, with a side of rice, veg etc. We also sampled the caipirinhas which were massive and delicious. All this while your toes are almost in the...More

Situated right on the beach (sit too close and you’ll get your feet wet in the sea), this is the perfect place for a morning coffee, afternoon cocktail or evening meal. With a great ambience and friendly staff you can easily spend a few hours...More

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!
