Great simple fresh fish in a gloomy neighbourhood.

Great family restaurant to enjoy fresh fish from the ocean. The owner is a fisherman and he will grill for you a decent steak or whole fish from his daily's catch with a smile and a joke. His daughter will help you with things to accompany the fish, including wine. They have some good Portuguese... read more

Sunday night is not a popular night to dine out, probably because Sunday lunch is a big thing here. Therefore we found the place deserted, but decided to stay nonetheless. Choice was limited, but the fish (black spotted sea bass?) was excellent and so were the potatoes, beans and salad that accompanied it. Wine was good and so was the... More

Amazing fish grilled perfectly in front of you. Probably turned out to be a bit overpriced, but it's worth it compared with other places that wont offer you this kind of quality. Don't expect a nice charming place, in terms of design it's very poor.

Great hospitality, knowledgeable wine waiter, loads of fresh healthy food, definitely worth it. Lots of boiled potatoes, carrots, cauliflower and broccoli, bread and cheese and the fish was to die for. Simple, healthy, cooked to perfection.

I am a regular customer and advise all fish lovers to experience. It certainly is the best fresh fish and friendliness of Master Quim and his friends who make this area the best experience for fresh fish :) Attention when there is no fresh fish Master Quim closes the door :)

I had a great meal. Not going to lie. We walked in and headed straight for the fish on ice. We had the help of the master chef which i think is the owner. He was great. The waitress on the other hand was terrible. She had a major attitude. We went on a Sunday afternoon so i guess she... More

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... 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.
