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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Had eaten here the last time we came to Praia and was good. Sadly, it looks like the place has been taken over by new management and it was fairly poor. Might just have been not to our taste but I had fish and it...wasn't good. Service was also all over the place and I was brought my main before the starter and my wife was missed out altogether. Would not come back here.More

Stumbled upon this place quite late in our holiday but ended up visiting again the following night. Superb food, a lovely atmosphere and excellent service, i fully recommend. Special mention for the wonderful waitress Saaliha who is an absolute gem and a person who the...restaurant would do very well to keep hold of. All in all a fantastic dining experience!More

I wish I could give zero stars because this “restaurant” should be allowed to be open. The staff is super young and inexperienced, when asked to explain some meals they clearly had no idea themselves. After ordering we waited more than an hour. What arrived...after an hour honestly made us lose our appetite. We got “batatas assadas” which should be potatoes in the oven but ended up being old cooked potatoes just throwed into the fryer. They honestly tasted like they had already gone bad so we couldn’t eat them. The salad came without any dressing and already super mushy like it has been sitting in it’s tiny bowl the whole day long. The vegetables that come as a condiment are just bagged veggies you can buy at every supermarket. It’s just warmed up with no salt, pepper or whatever. Plain veggies out of the bag. The portions are pretty poorly served since you can’t eat the condiments they come with. Overall an horrible experience, just walk past this “restaurant” for your own well being.More

A very handy place to eat in Praia De Rocha at the Alvor end of the strip. Great Value and quite relaxed with no fuss or hassle. Great variety on the menu and after eating here maybe 6 or 7 times in our last 2...visits to Praia De Rocha I am confident enough to say we will be back again on our next visit. The rest of the family with me have steaks and fish but I usually stick with the €9.95 for 3 course meal. Now being Irish the starter and dessert are miniscule for the likes of what we are used to but the main course such as pork in a mushroom sauce ( with extra roast spuds of course ) is often enough on its own to fill me up. Staff can be a bit manic sometimes but I suppose its quite a long season there. Nice port with your meal is a huge advantage to dining here.More

We went for the €9.95 menu plus a beer each! Soup was light and delicious, didn't taste at all like British tinned soup! Had the piri piri chicken, really authentic and spicy. Had the creme brulee for dessert, was a bit runny but otherwise lovely....Excellent value for money and easy to find.More

Great venue. Hidden from seaview but at the far west of the 'strip'. Lovely interior. Friendly attentive service from Min Hazul, Mou and the team. €9.95 menu includes fish dishes (hake, marlin) but my fave was the liver and onions. Loved the soft rock background...music and there is a happy drinks period 10am to 5pm. Plenty of outdoor seating south facing for the sun and an interior restaurant for cooler January evenings.More

My daughter and I visited Claires during our holiday in Portimaõ. We ordered carbonara and a chicken salad. Both looked delicious on arrival but two forkfulls into the salad I removed a long blonde hair belonging to the lady who could be clearly seen working...in the kitchen without a hair net. This put me right off and I sent it back and was given a free drink of my choice. I nibbled at the carbonara ordered by my daughter, it was creamy but very thick and heavy, she only ate about 1/2 the portion. When we went to pay the very apologetic owner now informed me he didn't accept any form of card payment. Very disappointed.More

We stumbled across this little restaurant on a walk along the strip and decided to try it out for a meal. Upon entry we were seated in front of an elderly gentleman playing the keyboard and occasionally singing, this would have created a nice atmosphere...if the volume hasn’t of been so loud! The service was average with a young boy who spoke very little English struggling to find the correct tables and communicate with the customers when he made mistakes! The prawn cocktail starter was nice however some prawns were ready to eat while others still had heads and shells attached, making the dish awkward to eat. We also had the garlic bread starter which was three shabby bits of bread roll drowned in oil. The mains however did made up for the poorer starters, I had the chicken in an Algarvian sauce which was flavoursome, well cooked and I’d definitely go back and eat again! My partner had the grilled salmon which was well cooked and full of flavour as well as coming with various sauces on the side to meet anyone’s requests. I would consider returning here for the Algarvian chicken if the service and atmosphere was improved upon.More
