This is the place to eat fresh fish and enjoy the great sunset. Their speciality is fish cooked in salt. It's really delicious. You taste the freshness of the fish and you don't need more. The starters were also very good: schrimps, ham, olives... Very...More

My husband and I had dinner here last night and it was absolutely wonderful! We ordered the sea bass en salt that was the best fish that I’ve had in Portugal! The atmosphere and service were equally as good. We will definitely be back!

The place itself is very beautiful with a great view, the staff is also very friendly. The seafood is good. Although they don't really have a choice of juices if you're going with a child. Other than that everything is great!
