If you love grilled fish, you'll be happy here!

They only serve grilled fish and they mastered the grilling technique, here you can choose the fish to be grilled and the way you liked it, with or w/o fishbones. They have a very good selection of local White Wines that goes very well with the fish. Prices are a bit high for Portuguese... read more

Very nondescript restaurant and no frills but had the friendliest staff and the freshest grilled seafood ever! Delicious octopus salad, tasty bread, fries, grilled fish to die for. If you are looking for the freshest seafood, try this place. Owner & chef is a hoot & even sat with us and offered us passion fruit liqueur on the house! When... More

Simple restaurant with no frills but the food and service where excellent. Our meal consisted of a small starter, bread and the main of grilled fish of choice, salad, potatoes, and beans. Well worth the walk and excellent value at 50 euro for 2 people. Not sure what to make of the last review, perhaps they don't get out much!

We went to this restaurant, after we found it here on Tripadvisor. It is a 30 minutes walk from the port. Small bar on the ground floor and modern restaurant on the first floor. There are only few fresh fish sorts in the fridge. You can choose which one do you want to be grilled for you. Service is very... More

We decided to go to this restaurant based on other review. We were not disappointed! We arrived at the restaurant at 6:15 because the taxi driver told us it opened at 6pm. When we walked in, the owner said we open at 7. I told him our driver had given us the wrong time. He then proceeded to open the... More
