Worth a trip. Lily works really hard and the fresh fish (sea bass for us) was outstanding. Be nice if its busy it's not their fault.

Having arrived at the restaurant with a booking it took about 20 minutes for the drink order to be taken. It was probably a further 20 minutes before anybody came to take our food order. The food, when it finally arrived was delicious. Unfortunately though we had to go looking for the bill. The restaurant wasn't crowded but appeared to... More

Absolutely fantastic food. We both picked one of the daily specialities for lunch, and was both extremely impressed. So nice and tasty food, beautiful setting and great and fast service from the male waiter. Everything was nice and clean. The food has to be the best we tasted while in Portugal.

We have been coming to this area off and on for over 20 years, and in that time have seen the highs and lows of O Pirata. In the early days it was OK but it wasn't exactly a fresh place to eat. Feral cats and persistent flies spring to mind. More recently it has been closed altogether. It is... More

We were staying just around the corner so we tried this restaurant for a take away on our first night. We subsequently dine here a further 3 times. Very friendly staff, thanks especially Lily. Great food, recommend the monkfish and prawn kebabs, Portuguese style fillet steak. Great for young children too.

Just a short walk from our apartment at Mar Bel Sol and nice to get away from the crowds on the marina. Visited twice and had lovely food on each occasion the steak was enormous and the monkfish and prawn kebab is highly recommended.

Off the beaten path but worth finding! Staying nearby and limited options for lunch thought we would try O Pirata. Appears to be pool bar/restaurant for small complex. Staff so pleasant and helpful. Hubby opted for the daily special, BBQ monkfish and prawn, excellent choice, I had food envy! I had the shrimp curry, both fabulous. Will be back before... More
