Me and my 27 colleagues had a late night dinner here in feb 2015. We had a lobster soup and some seashells and it was very nice. It was a nice atmosphere, good service and a nice view.

If you want to treat yourself and your family or go out for a business meeting come here. If price is not a problem for you. If find it extremely a good deal because quality and service are outstanding. We had seafood and that is my advice you will be satisfied. Highly recommend.

We were a group of 13. Everything we ate was fantastic: tiger prawns, clams, rice dishes, fish in salt crust. Good wine and the service superb. Hard to choose what to eat bcs everything on the menu looks enticing. A place to revisit again and again!!!

Everything was very good, fresh and well made, and the service impecable. We had the gambas tigre ao churrasco and carabineros a la plancha as starters, and the robalo a portuguesa as the main dish. Simply perfect. And there is a nice view of the sea, near Praia do Guincho.

I can safely assure you that when you come here, you get some of the best food on this side of Portugal. This is primarily a seafood restaurant, so when... More

I have been several times to the restaurant. The food is very good and it's located in a very nice place. The only more negative point was the service. Though everything is done very "according to the book and etiquette" there is some lack of enthusiasm or even smile to the customer. If that alone is tackled, the overall experience... More
