Nice Seafood Restaurant

This is a nice full season restaurant where you will pay what you get. Although we had to wait more than 30m for the meal, everything was pretty nice... not the best... The staff was also very pleasant and professional. If you´re tired of the many experimentalist half season restaurants at praia... read more

Just forget about the Praia da Rocha hype and come eat at a true good marisqueira. Now if you are into pizza and burgers you may want to travel to Italy or the US ;-)

It is such a pity that a nice restaurant at an excellent location in the center of Portimao old town, even with excellent food, can keep on with service under all, no service at all? Having a simple dinner of two persons, that was probably the problem why we got no attention at all after the restaurant started to be... More

This restaurant is located in the centre of Portimão and far from the typical spots where the turists go to eat fish in this city. At the first look, I thought it would be a regular portuguese restaurant however the food exceeded all the expectations. Everybody in my group ordered different meals but all of us were blown away with... More

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 making the whole experience so... 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.
