We went twice as it is authentic Portuguese food unlike the food found in Villamaoura Marina. However the service was slow on both occasions and the waiters had to be prompted for the menu, drinks etc.. The waiters were polite, but hardly spoke English. The manager was rather rude with his staff and clients and it appeared that no decisions... More

We like our visit. The fish was so tasty and the service was not fast. The restaurant was not good decorated.

We visited on the evening of the Euro 2016 final and it was very busy with Portuguese families enjoying the match with their meal. We were made very welcome and shown to the last empty table. We both had the sea bass and were pleasantly surprised by the portion sizes. It was lovely. The service was excellent and very friendly... More

Having driven past this restaurant lots of times we finally decided to stop for Sunday lunch and it was well worth it. Always a good sign is that it was full of Portuguese families. My husband had sea bass and I had Portuguese steak, both were tasty and were good size portions, my daughter is vegan and they made her... More

Having heard good reviews about the fish here and staying less than a 5 minute walk from the restaurant, my family and I chose to try this for a quick lunch. Arriving at 1, ordering by 1.10 - still not served come 2pm. On asking the manager where the food was 'one minute' was the response to which he chose... More

This was our third or fourth time on this restaurant. We have arrived late to dinner (around 9.30pm) and there were only 3 qualities of fish to be served in the rodizio. So, in a group of 8 people only one had the rodizio and did not like it. Rodizio is cheap (7€/person) but salad, bolied potatos or fresh fries... More

Don't drive past this place... you have to stop and eat there! The grilled fish rodizo is amazing... today I had sardines, mackerel, sea bass (whole) gilt head break (whole) and a fillet of fish that is local.. no idea.. it tasted like a light blue fish. . With a salad of tomato and green pepper, drink and a coffee... More

Saw lots of custom in here so went into the back restaurant, from the front it looks like two different, it isn't . In fairness my daughters loved their Portuguese style steak and cleaned up. My wife loved hers until a very long hair intervened, sadly my squid was not good at all and we weren't charged for that, so... More

Have passed this place many times and was finally lured in by the €4.50 fish rodizio. You can eat and eat and eat but what you are eating - that's another matter. Many of the fish are small and, although hot of the barbecue, are not recognisable and all require a fair amount of work to separate the flesh from... More
