Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A lovely setting, friendly service but the food was a let down. I ordered the salmon bruschetta with cream cheese and onion. The salmon was tasty, the cream cheese paper thin and “csrmelized” onions were stale canned onion crumbles. The accompanying chips tasted like leftovers....The side of fries also failed to measure up. Not crisp and lacking flavor. Might return for a drink and the view but would skip the meal.More

Perfect location for lunch in the sun looking at the ocean. The food was really good, we shared octopus and chips, plentiful and very reasonably priced

Nice bar, not elegant but the food was Ok. Big portions. I recommend tuna sandwich (you will get 4 big pieces ), cuttlefish was salty, a Little Bit like fastfood but i recommend.

Lovely view across the ocean when sitting on the first floor of the restaurant but very exposed to the wind. Staff were polite and we were served quickly. Food adequate and filling. ( octopus and cuttlefish) . However the place lacked atmosphere.

The location is great, parking next to the Portinho was pretty easy, also maybe because of the weather. We've been to this place twice as the service, the dishes, and the poncha are so great. What I would recommend: the fried cuttlefish, the shrimp and...the bolo do caco. The maracudja poncha is also great!More

We came here to enjoy the sunset. But the service is the total disaster. The waiter was ignoring us all the time. Didn’t even gave us the menu and didn’t even asked what we would like to drink. Very sad for this nice location…

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 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
