Views of the sea below are fantastic. Beautiful balcony but after waiting over an hour for a fish dish of the day (being informed by waitress after 30 minutes that our food was on its way) we decided we could wait no longer. No apology...More

Beautiful view from this restaurant in the middle of the road. Tasty dishes. Nice service. It's worth it to step by in your journey discovering this coast.

This is located at one of the most astounding viewpoints you'll ever see.. a vertical drop to the coast and Paul do Mar with incredibly windy road all the way down from here. Average snack bar, awkward parking.
