This restaurant is right on the harbour with a large patio and has great ambiance. Our server was very friendly and attentive. After ordering he brought out a plate of fresh bread and olives. I had the Swordfish and my husband had the Steak...we both enjoyed our meals and the portions were a fair size. Afterwards, our server brought out... More

Excellent seafood restaurant with outdoor dining that sits on the waterfront facing downtown old San Miguel and the bustling harbor. We enjoyed multiple meals here, always excellent fresh fish. My favorite was the fish kababs that provided many different types of fish on a skewer, delicious. The restaurant is located on the harbor that extends to the lighthouse near the... More

Everyone was right about the garlic shrimp....they were great! The Octopus was in a delicious sauce...of course they put some potatoes in as well. The swordfish was ok. Nice atmosphere. Our service was great and enjoyed the atmosphere

As a starter me and my girlfriend shared the garlic shrimps. A simple dish, though heavenly tasty. The "polvo" my girlfriend ordered was okay, but sadly tasted as ordinary meat. The steak however was out of this world, with honestly the best pepper sauce I ever had. For wine, try the "Faria's Wineyards" red. A delicious local wine with a... More

The service is bad. The waiters will be a little bit more dedicated if you are a foreigner. The food is not bad, but it's not good and definitely doesn't worth the price. This is basically a tourist trap. I you are Portuguese don't even consider in going there. You can easily find much better and cheaper food and with... More

Nice and fast service. Excellent shrimp with garlic and fish soup. Could also recommend trigger fish. Beef was decent quality, but nothing special.

Were seated, ordered and food was not served. When we inquired where the food was - the people next to us sat after and were on dessert- they said we must have ordered something that took a long time to cook. It didn't as it was what they were eating. Poor service and lied about food. Don't go there if... More

Sometimes you have to surprise yourself and refrain from asking too many questions about the menu. I chose the clams as a starter and they were delightful. Followed by braised swordfish and pineapple carpaccio. Lovely evening with fellow sailors...

We had a bad expirience at 100 Espinhas. To start with my wine glass was dirty. I then got a new one - which was also dirty.. For the main course I got the wrong dish 3 times (!) and I decided to eat the 3rd they gave my anyway. My wife ate her dish alone due to this. The... More
