Description: Authentic Flavours of Ria Formosa Born and raised by the sea, the people of the Algarve have integrated the gifts of the ocean into cuisine for generations. Our menu is a collection of flavours, aromas, and textures harvested from the waves and developed at the table with family and friends. At Estaminé, we recognize that community is central to Portuguese cuisine, and hope to foster conversation with dishes designed to be discovered together. Whether you are savoring local clams or selecting a fresh fish to be charcoal-grilled, you are seizing on an experience that Estaminé has been refining for over three decades. We hope you enjoy the food, drink, and experience that Estaminé has to offer, and come back to visit soon! “Bom apetite!” Isabel & Zé

The big selling point of this restaurant is the location on a beautiful island, but it's more than just a tourist restaurant in a beauty spot, the food is also great.

It's hard to pick out a highlight. The catch of the day was sea bass, which was cooked to perfection, the prawn starters were heavenly, the chips were perfectly golden. The only thing that wasn't perfect was the cheese cake, which I felt was a bit heavy.

The service was friendly and helpful, the only thing I could fault here was the hot starters arriving long after the cold starters.

Our wine was the Odelouca, a blend of Viognier and Arinto that was full of flavour and delicious.

At 50 Euros a head this was not a cheap meal by local standards, but it was worth every cent.

What a fabulous way to spend a day
Go to Faro, get on a water taxi or the ferry
And head out to this deserted island. Only thing on this island is the wonderful restaurant. Only open for lunch
Completely self sustained, solar powered, reticulated water system.
Wonderful food, all seafood, fresh from what is available at the time. Go and have a day and enjoy the unhurried magical ambience and an amazing food experience
Well done to everyone

We were really moved by the wonderful service we received here. The young man on duty showed us round the restaurant, and took us down to the best beach on the island. When we returned to the restaurant for lunch, he was kind and attentive, and even gave us an oyster on the house!

We were on a budget so had a cheese sandwich and chips - we were grateful for the restaurant's wide range of options and prices. Very fresh and enjoyable.

Wonderful views across the Ilha Deserta as you eat.
