Home made soup with bread, egg and herbs- well...that was so hot that I could taste nothing else but my wife liked it (the soup, that is). Fish in wine and garlic was rather like in vinegar- no taste of wine but plenty of vinegar....More

Stopped off while visiting view point. Staff were friendly and helpful, with quick service. Food was excellent with large portions. Followed up with their own fresh mixed herb tea from their own garden. Not a tea person but really refreshing in the heat.

After a long walk by the levada near Ponta do Pardo, we drove to this beautiful tea shop near the sea. Great homemade teas and cakes, but they also serve drinks and meals! Very welcoming service as well!

Very good service, pleasant staff. It took 5 minutes to bring meat and fish, the food itself was not very good. I would not advice to eat there, but the view is really nice

We were on our way to the west coast, leisurely driving on the highway. Something "compelled" me to follow a sign to a lighthouse in the village of Ponta Do Pargo and I'm so glad we did. This tiny but beautiful restaurant sits smack on...More
