Reviewed yesterday NEW

Had lunch here on Sunday, fish soup was very average, one piece of soup added to a tomato type broth, Fried shrimp for main course was average enough, shrimps were fresh, loads of garlic but served in some kind of broth which wasnt great. There's loads of places serving amazing fried shrimp in Cabanas

This is a busy restaurant - they also have a tapas bar in Cabanas, but this was the upstairs restaurant on the east of Cabanas. It was full, and continued to be all lunch service. Big portions of grilled fish - really nice... More

The restaurant is in a nice location overlooking the Ria Formosa. The service was welcoming. I had grilled Dorada which is Gilt head Bream. It was fresh and grilled with garlic and was tasty and good value at 12€ with accompanying salad and potatoes. My wife had a fish pie which was not special, a few pieces of fish hidden... More

I had both meals with boiled potatoes in garlic and oil delicious. The fish here is so fresh and that... More

Another lovely meal on a very busy Sunday lunch time. Very popular restaurant so glad we booked in advance for 11 of us. Staff fabulous, very attentive. Food great, fish & chips is a must, also the fish pie went down well. Highly recommended.

Had a great lunch here with fine views out to the island. Tuna and Sea Bream were cooked nicely, not over cooked and tasted great. We were relatively early and first in so had fast and very friendly service. Sat on the balcony with good views. Soon filled up so seems a popular spot for lunch. Without having eaten elsewhere...
