Visited for lunch on a Saturday. The area was very busy with tourists, but managed to find a table in the shade. The food arrived very swiftly and was delicious. The restaurant has been here since 1985 so service and etiquette were well established.

I will never forget the warm welcoming staff, the delicious grilled octopus, and the totally amazing view. Top it off with some port wine and a dessert in a jar for the best night ever!

Usually in Portugal at 19:00, but I think you don't need a reservation, just seat and wait to be served.
