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

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.
