Quite expensive and somewhat pretentious restaurant, and the quality of the food doesn´t measure up. Eat somewhere else, almost any beach restaurant will offer you a better price/quality ratio. If grilled fish is what you are looking for, try "Dois irmãos", one kilometer away, in the centre of the village Altura, not far from the church. You will pay less... More

What an awful place this was! The typical mass tourism restaurant, very loud and noisy. There was a party going on in the room annex to the restaurant with also very loud music. In the restaurant there was live music, which really is not our style! It was a cacophony of noise. Our starter (creme de mariscos) was floury and... More

We have eaten here while a football match was shown on the television. Clearly the match was more interesting than the guests as the waiters were watching the television and had almost no attention for the guests. The food and wine were good, but not special. Another unpleasant experience was that at first we were placed in the smokers department.... More

Very pleasant decor, attentive and helpful service and enormous portions.This is not fine dining, more an everything-you- can- think- of on a plate type of cuisine, but........very high quality meat and fish, very good olives, bread and cheese cover ( and one of the cheapest covers in the area at 1.50) and a good range of wine, cheaper by the...

By mistake, we followed the little road down from the E.N.125 to the cluster of houses above the Praia Verde beach and decided to try this stylish restaurant, drawn in by its bright blue entrance. Since most of the other restaurants we visited this trip were almost empty, we were completely taken aback to find the interior of the restaurant... More

Sea food and cilantro above the rice; besides that the quantity of waiters per table were enough not to have problem to order

O Infante is renowned in the area as one of the best places to eat.The food is always top notch, the staff are so attentive, and an experience always to remember, however many times you visit. The meals are enormous, so I usually have to share with a friend, or take the remainder home for the next day. The staff... More
