Nice place with outdoor seating in several locations making it cozy and private. Food was from nice to very good. A little bit hard to get to Jardim Do Mar when they are repairing the road from Calheta but worth the drive.

We spent a couple hours in this pretty little village recently. After wandering its alleyways, we fetched up descending to the waterside, where the surf was breaking over the rocky shoreline. Walking along the flower bedded promenade, we finally came upon this cafe/bar overlooking the...restless waters, and found a table right by the upperfloor, again overlooking a pebble beach, and wooden and rock built jetty. Ordering fresh fish dishes,Camarao Grelhad and Dose Lapas, we were not disappointed either by the quality or portion sizes of the dishes. Nice, chilled white wine.More

We came here for dinner and some beers a few nights ago. Ordered salmon bruschetta (a little odd), tosta portinho (good) and picado (okay). Lacked ambience and food was nothing special.

Wonderful spot to see the sunset while having a drink or snacks. Not the best food ever but decent for snacks and extremely friendly staff.

Summer restaurant situated near the beach. You can sit outside. Food there is mostly fried. Or they offer some sandwiches.

We enjoyed a lunch and a few evening beers at this restaurant at the far end of the promenade. It’s quite popular and we were pleased with the quality of the food and the prices were fair. For lunch we shared a sautéed squid, fries...and a salad. The squid was deceptively simple as a dish yet one of tastiest versions we’ve ever had. We enjoyed watching the kids below taking running approaches then slide down the boat ramp into the surf. Service was a wee bit slow however given how popular this place is with tourists and locals, this can be forgiven. If you visit Jardim Do Mar having a drink or a meal here is a must.More

We had great sundowner drinks and snacks (doses) here... it's hardly fine dining but sweet service, tasty seafood and great value drinks. Worth a visit for the gorgeous promenade too
