This restaurant we frequently visit during lunchtime. It is one of the few restaurants where I eat and enjoy the grilled fish. Their menu is simple and very well prepared. Also the views on the beach and the sea are spectacular.

The restaurant is quite basic on many levels (see what I did there?!), being essentially a wooden shack on stilts perched precariously on the cliff, with the main food being off the barbecue, and the staff being efficient and helpful. However, once your freshly caught and freshly grilled fish arrives the simplicity pays off big time! The desserts were one... More

Found this amazing location while exploring the lighthouse from our hotel. Ran back to get the husband before the sun went down. Didn't eat, but had a glass of wine while watching the sunset. Fabulous array of rock cairns on the beach.

Sitting on the wooden deck overlooking the beach, the location is perfect. We arrived very hungry after a long walk along the cliffs and beaches with out dogs. They were also welcomed with a big bowl of water! The grilled dourada was simply delicious - grilled to perfection! Friendly staff , relaxed atmosphere. we will be back!

We ate here late on a Monday lunch time and the place was busy. The view is stunning and the building is amazing. We ate a whole sea bream with salad and it was cooked perfectly. The service was very attentive and the price very reasonable.

The best thing about this place is the view and especially the sunset. Fish wasnt very fresh and best quality... it was grilled too long and dry because of that. Clams - really low quality and small Desert - disaster Service - disaster Stay away !

If your idea of Portugal is a Restaurant on the beach with views of crashing waves, a glass of cold white wine and fresh grilled sardines then it would be hard to beat this place. Had lunch here which was a thoroughly enjoyable experience after a long coastal walk. Great basic food well cooked and served and can't wait to... More

A wooden restaurant on the sea shore, where fresh seafood is grilled over hot coals in the open air. Excellent service, delicious food, and a beautiful romantic place for dinner while watching the sun set over the sea. The best food we've eaten in Portugal!! Excellent!

We enjoyed a late lunch in this lovely beach shack cum restaurant, which is right on the edge of the beach and has stairs leading down from the open air balcony straight onto the beach. The waiters were friendly and attentive and service was at a pleasant pace. We ordered fresh sardines and sea bream. The whole bream was brought... More
