The most breathtaking view I have seen in a long time, from a restaurant table. Out of this world location, set on the cliffs, overlooking the Paraiso beach. Great menu, including very large steaks and fish dishes. The owner takes the dishes of the day to guests for them to view and choose. Staff and service are excellent. Do book ahead. You can walk here from beautiful Carvoeiri. Quite a magical place. Definitely recommend

My favorite restaurant since 2000. New owners now since 2015. Higher prices but excellent food and service!.
Terrace now partly shielded with glass and individually adjustable awning, perfect!

We visited at lunchtime after walking from ferragudo along the coast. Greeted by immaculate and friendly staff who served us impeccably for the whole meal. The food was some of the best we’ve had for a long time, all beautifully seasoned and great use of fresh garlic, parsley and chilli. The clams are amazing. As for the monkfish & prawn curry, all we could say was WOW! Not over spiced but delicate and creamy, described as serving 2 but would easily do 4 after starters.....I need the recipe! Finished with great coffee and the most incredible chocolate cake. Oh and the house wine is really good. Will definitely be back next time we’re out here. Would highly recommend.
