Our family recently had a most enjoyable dining experience at Restaurant Pipa Café. All of the dishes we tried (fish, pasta, steak) were excellent, and the service friendly and attentive. The view over the bay is very nice. Prices were very reasonable for the quality of the food served. We will definitely come again during our next visit to Pipa.

The food is nicely served, but otherwise nothing special. The same offer as most other restaurants: tuna, shrimps and meat. I might be a little hard on the place, but it just didn't deliver anything special, which a number 1 ranked restaurant should. Maybe it was the overall ambiance that was the weakest, no real vibe in the place. If... More

I ate only one plate and loved it: the Shrimps with avocado. I hated the service though. 5 stars for the food, 1 star for the service.

Beautifully few from the covered terrace. The dishes described in detail by the staff. Big portions, the tuna in sesame crust is a dream, cooked as required. Sure a place to go back.

On a perfect spot in the idylic village Pipa we found this excellent retaurant. The menu is in Portuguese, but the very kind waiters are perfectly able to translate it for you and whatever you choose on this menu is very tasty, perfectly prepared, of an exceptional quality and, as the man outside the retaurant tells you, everything is PERFECTO!!!!...

One of our favorite restaurants in Pipa! Nice place with a great view. We where welcomed by two nice waiters. They helped us out with the (Portuguese) menu and advised us the specialties of the house; fish (tuna & shrimps) and meat. Great choices! Also the desert was very nice. Tip: if you go, check the English menu online.

Thank Joost K
