A great restaurant where locals and also some tourists go, fair prices for whine and food, fresh fish. One the best restaurant in this whole region. High level quality food and friendly service at a lonely cliff location. Enjoy! Cheers

We had a very very great time in this restaurant. Food is absolutely amazing!! They also serve some of the wines in a glass which is very nice if only wants to drink. We've tried octopus and seafood pasta. Both lovely. And when you go for desert the most difficult is to choose. We had apple crumble and "siricaia" (typical... More

The most memorable part of this restaurant was the extensive wine list and knowledgeable server. We had an amazing bottle of red to accompany our delicious meal. Otherwise this is an upscale spot with a nice interior and an amazing view of the water. Staff was relatively attentive. We shared the seafood stew and enjoyed the subtle flavors. My impression...

Fabulous decor and very friendly service. The food was excellent, with a twist on Portuguese cuisine! The ' camarao a bráz ´was a delicious surprise followed by tender lamb chops. well worth a visit!

A beautiful view, a calm atmosphere and some author dishes based on traditional Alentejo food. Nice options also on fresh fish, the restaurant is located very close to the fishing harbor.

We spent the weekend with our kids and friends close to Milfontes and this was a great spot to end the weekend before returning to the city buzz and back to school: good food and a walk in the fishing harbor. The restaurant is very nice with good tables for large groups like ours (12). Service was helpful and friendly.... More

Probably the most expensive restaurant in the area. Nice location, especially at sunset. Tables outside or inside; it can be windy, so inside is a safer bet but you'd need to book in high season. Service was ok, and they had an English menu - although just the one, so we had to share! Didn't seem like they had a... More

This restaurant came out on top of Tripadvisor recommendations for the area around Vila Nova de Milfontes. And it definitely deserves the top spot. It was well worth the short ride. Porto das Barcas lies just a stone's throw from the local fisherman's harbour. We went there on a Tuesday evening and did a reservation for 7 p.m. to avoid... More
