This is one of the oldest restaurants in the city and well known for shellfish. Been here several times and food is good, but service is terrible. Always takes to long to get drinks, starters and mains. At the end you are tired of being waiting for your food!

Loved the prawn cakes. Best. Starter. Ever. Was disappointed in their chilli. Was not spicy at all. Good service. Terrible salad. Awesome vibe and great location.

Had dinner here during week. Disappointed. Service slow, food cold, rice obviously re heated several times. Not what I have come to expect from this restaurant. Menu variety reasonable.

Consistently good quality seafood and other typical Moz fare .The setting is very basic , real old style Portuguese . Reasonably priced and well worth a visit .

The food is great, the fish portions are large. Great view and a brilliant vibe. Service is average, our waiter kept disappearing on us - our orders took forever to come. Wouldn't recommend any of the desserts - esp the cream caramel 😐

Had supper here and ordered the seafood platter for two. Very well prepared and served. Four crayfish, prawns, calamari, fish and crab was more than enough for two people. Informal vendors bugging you constantly if you sit near the beach area.Service was great.

One word: Wonderful... Tasty food. Friendly staff amazing location. What else can u ask for? Their prawns are big super tasty. Vegies are to die for. Chips and rice are simple things but their ones taste special. I can see that they take pride in their food. We went back the next day and wanted to watch a game. They... More

After visiting Sagres many times now it has been constant good food and service. Their specialty is shellfish; i love the shellfish platter. It is a lot of food for 2 people. The atmosphere is always nice and relaxed. Prices are very reasonable as well.

Thank johnpetter
