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 drank in this bar every night of our holiday last year before going on to a restaurant . We thought we would do the same this time, so on our first night we went and had pre dinner drinks before going to a restaurant but before leaving the waiter told us about an African band that would be playing...

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

We recently visited this delightful cafe for lunch with friends and returned for a second time as it was so good. Excellent friendly service fresh and imaginative food good choice of wine with jazz playing in the background. Live music also some evenings although we did not manage to go.
