Food and Staff ice nice but the boss is ugly and behaves like a king. Too expensive for what it is. The rice bowls are good.

Good fresh sea food, you can even choose your fish when you arrive. The restaurant sits right on the beach. Very friendly staff. I would definitely recommend, i can imagine this is packed in the summer.

I have been regularly to Comporta and it is always a must to go to Ilha do Arroz. Amazingly situated on the beach, beautiful sunsets (sometimes lunches go through all afternoon until sunset). Great fish with some classic Portuguese dishes. Heaven

We had taken our family to this restaurant and to its sister restaurant a couple of times over the holiday and this time we arrived with no booking on our last day. Antonio greeted us like long lost friends and made us so welcome, we hardly waited long before being fitted in on a busy Saturday lunchtime and Antonio & Nadia could not have been more attentive. The food is always delicious but it is made by the service.

This restaurant is the perfect example why first impressions are so important.

Getting in you immediately notice one thing. The staff seems completely unaware that they are there to do their job.

We were greeted by a twenty-something guy that seemed absolutely displeased to see us (he seemed so bored and with such a frown that I kept wondering if he was the son of the owners being forced to take a summer job there). Then there were two older guys, dressed regularly (maybe owners) who occasionally did something random... like adjusting the chairs or serve some water and then started eating or entered the kitchen. These little things gave a very weird atmosphere to a restaurant that was quite empty. The only people doing their job well were two waiters and the kitchen staff.

The food was between average and good. However, considering their pricing I would have to say it did not hold up to the expectations. Definitely not worth the money.

In general, not a good experience. You would be much better served, and have much better food, in Comporta Cafe which is just in front (I am saying this as we went there the day before).

I would sincerely recommend the staff to rethink their attitude and the way they stroll around in the restaurant.
