The Galley is a nice place for lunch overlooking Praia Da luz. The portions are very generous and service is fast.

Unfriendly welcome and long wait for the most boring Caprese (not a leaf of basil in sight!), fish fingers and sausage for the kids didn't offer any vegetables at all. Nice location by the beach, but that's really all.

This restaurant has a terrace at the boulevard, and on the first floor tables with great and romantic seaviews, esp. in the evenings. The staff is very friendly, the food is served with care and great taste. Excellent restaurant!
