Authentic food, excellent service.

My husband is Portuguese so we tend to avoid the tourist cuisine. This is a bar-restaurant, offering traditional Portuguese food with generous portions and reasonable prices. We had the seafood rice, Arroz de Marisco and the seafood casserole, Cataplana Algarvia. Fresh and well-cooked. Went back... read more

Chose this restaurant because it's one of the only ones in this area which doesn't have a tout trying to get you in. Friendly staff, good food & good value. Came here twice in our 4 day stay.

We had here lunch once. The restaurant itself is nice and the food is good and plenty. We ate on a table outside, but I suppose that in winter, it is very nice to lunch inside, with those big wide windows looking to the ocean.

We ate here on the first night of our trip. We chose this place after walking around for a short while but our kids were tired and cranky after a very early flight and just wanted to eat and go to bed so we back-tracked and ended up here. Two of us ordered calamari which was tasteless; one had pizza... More

We had Garlic Shrimp for a starter, and Paella for a main dish. The starter was excellent, the Paella was homemade and came with an abundance of shellfish and meats. Perhaps a little on the lack-of-taste-side.

Hit this place first night with 2 adults, 2 teenagers. Service was a bit hit and miss between the older chap and the lady (I think he was a bit annoying to her.....), he was just like Manuel from Fawlty Towers, but Portuguese, very funny, he made us laugh with his sayings ! 3 of us had Paella - very...

Found the Restaurante Aquário more of a cafe bar than a restaurant and the prices relax this. Could have a hot dog and fries for about 4 euro, large beer was 1.75 euro, strongbow by the can for 2.5 euro and a good selection of fast food on the menu. Staff are very friendly and the place is very clean... More
