Service was first class, choose your fresh fish before from cold cabinet, friendly waiters in particular George,food was cooked to perfection filleted at the table. Toasted bread with pate and olives and garlic prawns to start were a super choice. A must revisit !

We eat at the Rocha de Palha restaurant for top quality food (especially the fresh fish) and for the outstanding beach / sea view. In good weather it is delightful to have an aperitif befoe the meal or coffee and port afterwards at one of the tables outside the window at the top of the beach. We have eaten here... More

This location can't be beat! The staff were friendly and helpful and spoke excellent English. The fresh fish was cooked perfectly. Slightly over cooked carrots and broccoli were not huge let down as the fish was magnificent. The bread and olives to start were a pleasant surprise. We had an excellent lunch enjoying the view. We will return.

Enjoyed a lovely lunch here, attentive service, a great choice of fresh fish you can hand-pick off their daily display and a beautiful position overlooking the beach. The two of us shared a large Golden Bream while our son went for a juicy steak. All served with a smile, washed down with a tasty wine and enjoyed in warm sun... More

The food and service mirrors it's location. Easy to miss, by the church, with steps nearby to the Beach. Recommend with confidence.

Great location. Great value. Starter with red snapper salad beer and bottle of wine for €46 excellent. Go when it's light to watch the waves as you eat your meal.

This restaurant has a fabulous location on the Pera beach. We had a great meal watching the waves roll in. Cataplana was fantastic and the tornedo steak was amazing. Really relaxing ambience with great waiting staff. Check it out.

Stumbled across this restaurant by chance and enjoyed our visit! We had a Beautiful sea bream, which was filleted at our table. All washed down with a nice bottle of altiplano. The setting, on the beach with waves crashing a few yards from your table is magical. Really enjoyed our vist
