Fabulous fish restaurant and delightful staff. We were picked up from our aparthotel and dropped back as soon as we asked for a lift. Had the fried squid as a starter which was delicious. Not your deep fried calamari but gently done with onions. Then I had the octopus and rice stew while my husband had the bacalhau. The octopus... More

We have only had drinks and light snacks here but the staff are exceptionally attentive and very friendly. There were quite a few diners in when we arrived and the meals seemed to be of good quality and reasonable quantity without being overpriced. The view past the island and out to sea is lovely and the position of the restaurant... More

First off, this is the best beach on an island known from its beaches. We spent a leisurely day enjoying the water and sand and views. Stopped at the cafe for coffee and ice cream and were instantly taken with the adjoining dining room. Decided to book dinner for sunset time. Granted we were not there at the height of... More

This is one of our favourite places on the island to eat. The fish is amazing - especially the fish stew! You should sit outside and then you have a great view of the beach and sunset as you enjoy the lovely food. Well worth a visit!
