Don't be put off by the rough (but short) road in. The food is fabulous, service friendly and on it'so own private (mostly) beach!
Good vegetarian options, tasty all beef burger and fantastic soup and mains.

Second time we've been here for lunch. Lured back by Miguel and the amazing food. Fantastic location on the beach, great vegetarian options and willing to accommodate. Frozen Strawberry Daquiris are the best in Portugal! Miguel in particular is an absolute asset to this restaurant, so so nice and cannot wait to return.

We have visited this restaurant many times over many years but after an amazing lunch today felt compelled to finally write a review.
The restaurant is bright and airy and has a lovely relaxed feel with great attentive staff and beautiful beach views.
We chose the mussels and a smoked leek and apple soup from the daily special menu to start and followed this with a chick pea and roasted carrot salad and a king prawn pasta dish that was superb, complimented by a great bottle of Chardonnay from Southern Portugal.
Even on an unusually wet day it was a lovely lunch and we are looking forward to returning with the sun very soon!

We visited this beach before the beach bar was built in 2003. It was opened by Vigia as The Blue Wave and started well. The access roads from Salema and Burgau were both a bit rough in the early days but are now quite good.
We arrived at about 1.30 yesterday in glorious sunshine; it was our second visit under the current management. The manager was very professional and attentive. There was no problem moving tables when one with a better view became available. The food was quite innovative: small and unusually shaped calamari with a slightly spicy sauce; my lamb chops nicely pink with good salad, my partner's fish and beer battered chips not quite as successful. We enjoyed the meal and so did everyone else. So we will return next visit and are looking forward to that.

I have been to this beach restaurant several times but yesterday was not the best. I appreciate it is March but it felt like that with the whole experience. I think if you choose to open early in the season the customer should still have the experience of this restaurant and its location. First of all there was no chicken left! Not good for one member of our party. Everything was more rushed than usual, it's nice to have a starter, main course and sweet and a few bottles of wine over a period of time. We ordered 3 courses 2 bottles of wine and beers, it was a special occasion so wanted to take our time but felt a bit uncomfortable. When ordering a sweet we asked if the apple pie was home made and was assured it was but would take longer to be served which was fine as we needed the break. However, we were then told 3 mins later it was no longer available anyway, we were not sure why we were not told this in the first place ! I like this beach bar but was a bit disappointed yesterday.
