This place must re-think about their food service approach. First of all, while we were waiting for our time slot to get seated we asked for a take away drink and they didn’t served us for no reason. Secondly, mise en place (or set up...if you wish) is unhygienic and seedy with plates (rust spot on it, also the cup container of the bread at the bottom was full of rust) 🤬 and glasses still wet 🤢 Third, food is on average nothing exceptional, but of course they are expensive! Therefore, before opening a restaurant re-visit the basic standard of service, otherwise find another job. Very badMore

The spot is amazing with a nice view on the beach. Nothing to complain about the service which was good and friendly. The food was very good. The fresh fish was impressive. We enjoyed all our food. If you are looking for a portugese place,...you may want to go somewhere else because it is just being in France…:-(More

The staff do not care about customers - it takes one hour and 5 reminders to get one simple drink and a bottle of water. And the juice costs 6 euros! This place is a joke, plenty of other much better places in Costa

Chilled out vibe on a stunning naturalistic beach, think long, wide, uncrowded beach with good waves, nice sun beds and umbrellas (Euros20 a pair). Lunch is either great salads, black rice, good burger or whole fresh fish with nice wine. Its not cheap but its...not St Tropez prices either. Go and enjoy.More

This restaurante is the pure tourist trap. The view is great, the presentation is quite nice but they are focused on taking your money the easy and the wrong way. We decided to have fresh fish, they presented a 1kg fish (60€) and, despite it...was to much for two persons (they said that they don’t have a smaller one), we accepted and ordered it. The fish that came for the table was NOT the same that was presented earlier. It was just enough for two people and have no more than 700g. But the worst was that it was not fresh (near unfit for consumption) and it was made on the flat grill with lots of oil (nearly fried, when it was expected to be grilled)! Worst food ever… never coming back. They may have made a few $$$ today, but missed a customer and all the people I can tell about this experience. This is the kind of choices that normally don’t go well in long term… Avoid as much as you can.More

Nice spot (as many nearby..), reasonable food, zero portuguese soul. Design to accept tourists money. Nice decor, unwelcoming vibe.

Outstanding food, drinks and view. Had lunch with our 2 kids (ages 5 and 7). Not sure why others complain of service… we had a great waitress who was very attentive to us and the kids. Beer and drinks kept coming right on time… we...loved it!!!More

We arrived and waited an eternity for the food. When finally came... the drinks were warm when we asked for fresh drinks.. they didnt seem to care at all. The chicken on the chicken salad was raw.. .... we asked for fresh drinks again.... everyone...said"it is not with me" ...after asked 10 times....ok...enough....so we just got up and went to the restaurant to change our drinks.....half an hour there and we left.. so many better places in Portugal . Bad staff. Deve ser por sermos portugueses .... quando pedi um guacamole w um gin em frances vieram logo dois empregados a correr . Absurdo e a não voltar garantidamente .More

This is a fun spot for lunch, service is a little slow for the prices but it is good enough for expecting something served on the beach.
