My boyfriend and I went here for lunch and both ordered the swordfish steak. It was good, but nothing extraordinary and a bit pricey (but probably comparable prices to other places in the area). They have all sorts of seafood, and have the fish on...More

We had lunch and started with the octopus salad which was very fresh and refreshing especially with a nice bottle of Vinho Verde. I had the fish and my wife had the prawns and both were fresh and well prepared.

Great food and service especially considering the booking was a little last minute. Fish dishes were great and the chipped potatoes more interesting than normal fries. House red was very drinkable and the G&T's were nicely presented. Great views over the beach.
