Situated in the centre of town with a slightly noisy terrace that gives on to one of the main streets, this restaurant is a must for seafood lovers.

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,

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.

MARISQUEIRA CARVI, PORTIMAO Have been coming here for 7-8 years.
