We have eaten here on several occasions over the past year or so and have enjoyed every time. The food is great, the service is nice and friendly and the view is stunning. Can't wait til next time.

Steep climb up a dark road from the town but worth it. The fish 'soup' for two was delicious and the prawns very tasty and so much of it. Set above a lovely cove to watch the sun go down very nice indeed. Maybe a little pricey but worth it for a special meal

We've visited this restaurant each year for a few years now - and now with a new manager, this year it's better than ever! I don't think I have ever given a restaurant five stars before...
Really excellent food, fast and friendly service, and reasonable prices. What more could you want? Oh, I know: a magnificent sea view view across the bay to Lagos and superb sunsets if you time it right.
(You'll probably need to book, it was very full even in October.)

We had Dinner on two nights during last week. This restaurant was not open when we last visited the area two years ago. It is a great addition to the culinary scene. Great position to watch the sunset.
The restaurant is still relatively new and in immaculate condition. The owners and staff are very friendly, helpful and understand customer service.
The teal positive is the food. My wife and I shared a Sea Bream on our first visit and Snapper on the second. The fish was beautifully prepared and grilled.This followed fish soup and prawn cocktail starters.
We normally try to resist desserts but the Panna Cotta is to die for, the best I have ever tasted.
Inevitably this is one of the more expensive restaurants in the town but if you want a special night out this is the place.

We came there for dinner on a weekday without reservation. First they told us that it will be difficult to get a table, however, they were able to arrange one outdoor, which was at least for us the first choice :-)
The service team is very friendly and injects you with the good mood which they demonstrate. However, our order was taken wrongly, instead of Salad and Potatoes we got vegetables and rice. Since it took already sometime, we didn't complain and accepted it.
The Salmon Seafood skewer was OK, but we had similar dishes day's before at other restaurants in Cavoeiro, where it was much more tasty and not to compare with this one. Other restaurants are grilling the seafood on an fire grill, which makes a big difference in the taste. This skewer was either with oil pan-fried or made on a flat grill.
The prices are good, especially in view to the great location, the amazing view during sunset and the number of guests I were expecting much higher rates.

The waiter we had is a real champion in taking pictures, guests at all tables had asked him due to the great background view, the pics he took with my mobile are all excellent.
