We thoroughly enjoyed the food, the fish cataplana was excellent, and service was good. We went on a very quiet night, right at the start of the season, so cannot comment on the atmosphere or ambience. We will certainly return as and when in the area though.

We were walking along the beach following the good recommendations of this restaurant and were positively surprised! It is a little hidden, but it's definitely worth it. The owner was super friendly and took some selfies with us. We felt that he really loves his job. The fish was excellent, the sides could have been a little bigger though. We... More

Decided to try this restaurant as it was fairly close to the hotel, and I must say the food was excellent, we both had fillet steak in mushroom sauce and it was the best steak I have had in a long time, we then had tropical fruit cake with ice cream and that was divine, the owner was very friendly...

When looking for a restaurant near our villa we used trip adviser reviews when choosing Praia Grande which can be found above a small beach west of Albufeira in the village of Sao Rafael. We ate there every night hosted and served impeccably by Eduardo. The food was delicious (we tried most of the menu in the week) and unlike... More

If you're in the area (Sesmarias / Albufeira) and you enjoy seafood then this is probably a must visit restaurant. There's a huge selection of seafood (although the octopus and the paella like dish is their speciality) and to sit out in the roof top area, with the sea view is a great experience. The prices are reasonable as well.... More

Thank you for your visit and for the excellent comment about our Restaurant and very well described, both in relation to the excellent view and location and in relation to the food and it is true our octopus and the seafood are without a doubt the best in Albufeira and maybe Algarve, as well as our steaks of excellent quality....

It was a treat. We went there twice. The food was amazing, the steaks are superbs. Really felt like a treat. If you go and decide to eat outside, take some mosquitos repelant, especially when the sun goes down. We loved the place
