Claire’s Restaurant – Praia da Rocha
Last night we decided to take a walk to Claire’s Restaurant – Praia da Rocha. Although we live here we rarely venture into the tourist resorts after being here for ten years. You kind of get used to your own environment in the area which you live in.
To walk into “Rocha” from our house takes about 50 minutes and is the ideal way to build up your appetite if going out for a meal. Also a good way to make sure you don’t add too many lbs onto the waistline too!
Claire’s Restaurant is owned by Carlos and has been for a good few years now. He has a reputation for being cheap and cheerful yet still maintains a high standard menu. Tonight I decided to have the Mixed Grill and Donna went for the Chicken Breast. Both of us went for a healthy option of boiled rice and salad.
Both meals were absolutely perfect and if you ever manage to get to Praia da Rocha yourselves then Clare’s is a place you must definitely add to your list for either afternoon snacks or your main evening meal.

One thing I do feel that I need to warn you about. These guys do have a warped sense of
humour. I decided to have a “small beer” with my meal. Because I asked for a “small beer” that is EXACTLY what I got. A beer in a shot glass with the comment from the waiter of “well, you did ask for a small beer”.
Things like that certainly lighten the mood and with the old 50’s, 60’s and 70’s music playing
nicely in the background we had a cracking 90 minutes of chill out time.
Finally, Claire’s do a bargain for families. Lets say you are a family of 4. You go in the first night and you get your voucher stamped 4 times. You go in the 2nd night and get it stamped another 4 times. The next time you went in you would get one of your meals for free. See the voucher below as an example.
