Nice terrasse with beautiful view on the praia da rocha beach. You can also decide to eat inside as it is very welcoming and nicely decorated. The fresh fish is very good as well as the carril de gambas. A very fine meal in Praia da Riocha

We have visited the restaurant many times, which is fantastic but last night just sat in the bar for a few drinks. Fantastic atmosphere and service, good music and the best gin and tonic ever.

Excellent food in this charming restaurant with a nice terrace overlooking the sea. The food is simple but excellent and the staff at your service to advise you usefully and efficiently. The fish is perfect, the vegetables also, and I have not yet tasted all the wines!

We have been visiting this restaurant for many years and have always had a lovely meal and drinks overlooking the beach at the rear. We both had the safari style chicken curry which is delicious I would definitely recommend this. The staff are very welcoming and friendly, do not hesitate to go here.
