    The restaurant has views looking across the river estuary to Portimao. Specialty is fresh fish but there are pasta and meat dishes. Our fish, shrimp with garlic, spaghetti with clams and steak Portuguese was excellent.

    Very friendly staff, excellent fish, and Shell food on the grill. Nice jazz Music in the background. Very clean in and outside. Top address in neighborhood of Cavoeiro.

    Initial welcome was great with old waiter. But then the waiter who took our order was very rude and abrupt. Told me I could only have two fish if eating it to myself offering no advice when I asked about bones. I chose steak in the end was undercooked for medium and whole dish wasn’t hot

    I found the fish prices far too expensive, 50-60 euros for a piece of fish? No thanks, fish should not be double the price of a decent piece of fillet steak no matter how fresh it is, the menu was a disappointment in terms of choice, however the setting by the river is second to none, if you're prepared to pay the price then it is a beautiful setting for dinner at sunset.

    Absolutely beautiful setting, children’s menu is poor enough 3 choices, one called fish nuggets , turned out to be frozen fish fingers , we were expecting something home made for the price, fish was quite expensive and waiter was vague on what the cost was, myself and my wife opted for beef tenderloin and tiger prawn for 2 , beef was cooked well , tiger prawn consisted of 1 prawn halved between 2 a little stingy, vegetables and fries with meal both very nice and well cooked, in summary service a little rude, food tasty well cooked if not massive value for money, all in a good experience but could be improved with small tweaks

    Great sea bass and Portuguese steak. Very quiet on a Sunday night off season, but waiters were very attentive

    We’ve been to Ferragudo many times and have eaten at this restaurant before, the location, service and food are exceptional. We had prawn cocktail and soup starters with red snapper and golden bream for the main course - first class !

    The location near the little fisherman harbour is great. The fresh fish , they cook to perfection. The service is friendly and efficient. The wine is perfect. So, enough reasons to come back soon.

    Picked this restaurant mainly b/c it offered the Fork discount in the area we were in. Blown away by the meal! Grilled Redfish is simply outstanding. Add the desserts and we ended up with a meal on par with some of the best we have ever had.

    The fish is very fresh. The lamb is also very nice. Best food I have eaten in Algarve. The deserts could be a little better (the ice-cream is very milky and lack flavor and others could be a little improved). Still the place is really nice and the food very good.

    Great Food in a stunning atmosphere, and authentic, excellent service. We loved it being guests at Borda do Cais and enjoyed the Cataplana and the grilled fish, really one of the best fish places we've been in the West Algarve region so far
