We used this bar most evenings for a sharpener before dinner, and also listened on Thursday to the Blues Singer (5euro cover charge). They make a mean Gin and Tonic, (Gordons is the cheapest) and serve nice extra cold beer. The best thing we found was their cheese, tomato, garlic and oregano toastie, it is superb, I never though I... More

Relaxed atmosphere complimented by jazz music. Friendly service. Coffee and local baking were very tasty. Nice views if you sit outside. Lovely place to relax and to soak in the local vibe.

The owner of this delightful little cafe is so thorough and very concerned that her guests are happy and satisfied. I had a lovely salad. It was very big and tasty, and had been carefully cut up, and arranged. I can thoroughly recommend this place to anyone who wants a really nice snack.

It's an alright place, but if Jazz isn't your thing, it isn't the best place to be in Olhao... I personally find the music irritating!!!!

We have been to this bar a number of times, always a friendly welcome from the owner. Drinks are reasonably priced and there's are good choice of them. A nice place to sit and watch the world go by, watch it on Saturdays as that's market day and it does get a little busy.

Great little bar. Delicious rose wine and staff extremely knowledgeable re-wines. The ones recommended were so good we brought some back home. Enjoyed the laid back vibe and jazz playing subtly in the background

We had lunch here overlooking the small marina and watching people come and go from the markets. They offer something a bit different in salads and tapas - worth checking out

Very surprised to find a bar in Olhao with a reasonable selection of Belgian beers, served in the correct glasses and by very friendly and helpful staff. Priced cheaper than you would find them in UK which we were surprised by, considering the comparitive longer distance they have to travel. Specially selected Portugese wines available by glass too which were... More
