Great afternoon out!

Just wanted to say what a naturally warm welcome we had, great service, no rush, and the food was out of this world. We had the expensive seafood platter but it was Taylor'd to our tastes and the whole visit was one of the best experiences of the holiday. Congratulations to all the staff on... read more

Probably the most polite waiters we have ever encountered. The food was great and the prices super acceptable too. We would definitely recommend and most certainly return!

I've been to this restaurant many times now. The food is always first class, the service is very hit and miss. If you go when they're quiet, you'll be treated well, if someone comes in who is going to be spending more than you, you'll be ignored, have your order messed up and generally treated like a freeloader. This has... More

You have got to try the prawn curry here. More prawns than curry. Fresh fish by the door, crab and lobster always available too.

Excellent for fish and seafood, or try their shrimp curry! A real non touristy portugese restaurant as reviewed by many guide books. The front window display of fish on ice is very impressive,

Then baby mackerel, a whole crab, a large grilled john dory, cataplana which is a... More

It is famous for, and deliver excellent seafood from shellfish to all kind of rare fish. We had Perceves and Peixe Rasgado, barnacles and a variety of Scorpion fish. Fantastic fish, and at a fair price, considering the quality of the food. Very friendly and professional staff! highly recommended to lovers of seafood.
