Excellent but discrete service. Mediterranean food , clams and squids are fresh and well cooked. Fish fillets are very nice also for small children. Meat dishes on the stone are also a must. Regional dessert with almonds and "alfarroba" are original and different from current desserts in the area.

Vila Nova de Cacela is a little village with some nice restaurants. Sabinos is one of them. Well decorated, good environment, good food. But that's it...no more than normal recipes and just good food. The problem is the price of the dishes. Way too expensive for the location, for the kind of restaurant and for the quality of the food.... More

After an initial failed attempt to dine without a reservation, we did succeed two days later after booking a table. We had boiled shrimp as a starter and split a Telha between two adults and two small children. The portion ended up a bit short for all four of us so we had to order extra fries to satisfy the...

Great selection of traditional Portuguese food and very well presented. Service from all staff second to none. The restaurant has a great atmosphere too and a mixture of nationalities, which I love. If your visiting the area this is a must place to eat. Great value and portions. Pork and clams are the best in Portugal along with the steak... More
