There were four of us (women) traveling to Sagres. After seeing the fort and views, we went to Flamingo Cafe for tea/coffee. They recommended this place and we were all glad they did. We got there about 25 minutes before opening. The front door was unlocked and we went in. They kindly explained they weren't open yet and offered us a seat at a table to wait until the kitchen staff was set up. As soon as it was, the waiter returned and took our orders. The food was excellent. We all liked our meals. I had fresh fish which was superb. WE ALL ordered desserts....what a variety and they were all amazing. The atmosphere is casual, but the food and service more than make up for it. The waiter even gave us a history of the name...very interesting place.

We had been sightseeing at Cabo de Sao Vicente and a girl stooped to provide us with a flyer for a local restaurant. We decided to stop in on our way back through Sagres and are so glad we did! This is our first trip to Portugal and our friends who are staying in Portugal wanted us to have an experience with local food. It was a great experience! Walking in the door we saw a display case of fresh fish; the waiter, Davide [who spoke great English], was extremely personable and helpful. He brought us the fish [sea bass] that would be our lunch, took us out to be able to see the fish being cooked on the barbecue, and deboned and cut it into servings right at the table. He was attentive, but not overly so, willing to carry on a conversation when he came by to check on us. The fish was superb and the side dishes of vegetables, potato and salad were very good, as well. We splurged on desserts, cheesecake, a lemon cake/tart and cream pie with fresh berries; all were delicious! They provided a complimentary taste of Porto and Muscatel at the end. Definitely recommend a visit!

Me and my husband went there for lunch. The inner sense told us it’s going to be not a good experience, but we were hungry and decided to give a chance to number one restaurant in Sagres.
In the beginning the waiter spilled a whole glass of water on my husband even before we ordered... it was unpleasant, but the food was much worse!
We took fish soup (was watery with small pasta), clams in garlic oil and grilled fish.
Fish was ok, though potato and cabbage as a side was unexpected.
The clams were super salty and now I know why- they were foul! We felt poising with them in 20 min and now it’s 8 hours we fight for the toilet in our hotel room.
Guys, believe me, you don’t want such experience!

Empty just before 1300, but filled up somewhat soon after. Ordered mixed fish which was good. Service good, but not a lot of atmosphere.
