The view from the restaurant is what makes it the most interesting. Dishes are not great quality nor sophisticated. But for a nice drink in the sun overseeing the ocean, that's a good place!

The location and the food were good.BUT the staff and their attitude was shocking.I would say the reason for this being when we were presented with the menu and the drinks menu.We both chose beer,and the waiter asked no wine.IF we wanted wine we would have ordered it.That was the waiters mind made up,we must be British and common.And they...

Dear Sir/Madam, You are complaining that the staff did not ask you if the food was ok, but then you complain that they asked you if you wanted wine... following your logic, if you wanted a blanket, you ask for it! If you want only vegetables or potatoes, or rice with your fish, you ask for it, as in EVERY... More

We have been to the beach at Olhos de Agua and we decided to stop there for lunch. We just loved the terrace overlooking the sea and the staff was friendly. We had dorada and salmon, with a couple of bottle of great white wine. I warmly recommend it!

Set to the right of the beach this restaurant commands a great view of this small bay. Drop in for just a drink or stay longer for lunch it doesn't matter. Enjoy the view. All of the usual dishes can be found here with a lunchtime meal for 2 costing about €25 depending on your choices. The property is well... More

La Cigale is a great place to spend a long lunch out on the deck with views over the beach and sea. We are seafood and enjoyed the house wine, it was all excellent and very well priced. Would highly recommend visiting for lunch.

Visited this restaurant last night. It has to be the best restaurant on the Algarve for, location, menu choice, & service. The decor is very chic. The food was absolutely delicious. We had Avocado & Prawns to start, Chateaubriand & the tastiest veg to go with it. Wonderful wine choice of Lancer. The staff, particularly Luis, were very very friendly... More

Incredible location right on the beach . A good selection of fish available however really quite pricey. Service was very slow and they just couldn't stop pouring the wine to get it down us as quickly as possible . Restaurant very white and really quite sterile . Terrace outside would be fabulous for lunch . We won't rush back .
