Your meal will be prepared by a fisherman!

The owner used to have a couple of boats but sold them and started this restaurant. He still does fish but not full time. You know that the fish you get was chosen by an expert. It is a little hard to find on a second storey but well worth the effort. I had barracuda and when I looked at... read more

You pick your fresh fish, they grill it for you, it is amazing. We came here twice during our stay. Ask for the beans and potatoes as well - different that most of the potatoes on the island, they have garlic, olive oil and spices! Would highly recommend this restaurant, which is about a 5-10 minute walk from downtown.

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 standards, average 25€/pax .Don't recommend if... 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 were greatly impressed that the owner of the restaurant introduced us to all varieties of catch of the day and let us pick what we liked. This friendly gentleman cleaned, dressed and... More

If you like the idea of seeing what you will be eating, and picking out the exact fish the restaurant will be cooking for you, this is definitely the place to go!
