Nice and very typical restaurant

Just try the best fried cuttlefish in Portugal at this place! I really enjoyed it, its a very nice local restaurant and they served a lot of Portuguese food but when there you just have to go for the fried cuttlefish with french fries.

This is a must visit place, the best chocolate Frito in the world!! Super delicious. You better book by phone before going, otherwise you will face a waiting list for sure. This restaurant is famous in all Portugal for the chocolate. Don't miss it!

The quick service is compared with Mcdonalds, the food is excellent, of course they just serve "choco", but it's better be perfect in one thing instead of be medium in several things. Rei do Choco is one of the best restaurants in the country to eat this specialty, the price is very fair and the service is so fast that... More

This is the place to go to eat choco frito! Simple restaurant, indifferent service but the "choco frito" is superb. It has other options in the menu but I have never tried them.

Plain restaurant, no thrills, expect to cue up on lunch and dinner time. Order choco frito with a beer and eat!

This was one of the most appreciated meal of our tour of Portugal. The place is like a fast (sea) food, and they serve you quickly even if it is full of people. If you stop in Setubal, don't miss it. Taste the choco frito because it's worth the journey.

Visited with some friends who live in Setúbal and love this place. We ordered sandwiches with the famous "choc frit", beverages, and one serving of fresh fried to take away to the benches near the river, which is very close to the restaurant. Id never tried choco frito before, so I can't compare with other places, but I can say... More

I'm a regular on this kind of way to serve "choco". In this avenue you can find many places serving it. Pleasant and fast service. It may varies along the year, being more complicated on summer with numerous tourists. Good "choco frito" available.
