Food is my priority in a restaurant, and I give this an A +....so was the wine. I love Sabv. Blanc. And the Sauvignon Blanc was fabulous😁

Staff attitude to be desired. Rude, abrupt and pushy for spending more money. Not a place I will go again. Pity that with such nice setting and scenery.

A great end to the holiday with a visit to Porto days Barcas. We had the shrimp with garlic and the scrambled egg with country sausages as starters followed by a tender steak in a Roquefort sauce accompanied by green beans and chips and lamb chops with garlic new potatoes and a rocket salad. Both mains were delicious. A great... More

This is a place where you will eat well and be well served, with a level of detail quite impressive. It may not be that typical 'alentejano' restaurant, however it has a awesome view and that welcoming style. The 'tagine' is so good... Everyone must try.

I visited this place during trek from Porto Covo to Vila Nova de Milfontes. It took me 55 minutes to eat. I ordered only salad, but after finishing it took about 20 minutes to get check and to pay. it was very very slow taking in mind that only one third of the restaurant was filled.

Visited in early April when, despite the charming location overlooking the sea, and a warm sunny day, we were astonished to have to wait until 2.45 to get a table for lunch. The food is extremely good with large portions and I suggest that the lobster rice for 2 (45e) would almost certainly feed 4 people with normal appetites. Good... More

We had a most relaxing lunch outside on the front porch. The fish kabob was very good as was the white wine sangria.

This place was recommended in our guide book. After asking directions we set off on foot to find it, thinking it was not too far from town. It ended up being quite a walk in the heat and several times we nearly turned back. But I am so glad we didn't. This turned out to be the very best meal... More
