What can you ask from a restaurant? Good food? Azenhas do Mar has some of the best seafood dishes of Portugal which has some of the best seafood in the world. Percebes, Acorda de Marisco and freshly caught fish are some of the highlights. Good view? Undoubtedly one of the best in world. On top of the beautifull Atlantic ocean.... More

It has a nice view (during the day). It's very pleasant the inside, the environment and the staff. They are all very friendly. The room is not so cosy, but as it's near the beach/sea, it's normal. It's a bit expensive.

An amazing place, right above the ocean, high quality fish and seafood, and good service. What more can we expect! The prices are much more expensive than a normal restaurant in Portugal, but it's not a normal restaurant, it's a very especial one.

The restaurant seems to hang over the sea, overlooking the cliffs to one side. When the sea is rough, it is spectacular and so is well worth visiting out of season. As is the case with most good Portuguese cafes, the fish is excellent and they know how to cook it. We had sole, perfectly fresh and less than half... More

Azenhas do mar was recommended to us by our hotel as we planned to drive along the coast after visiting the Palace Monserrate. The drive took only fifteen minutes, the restaurant easy to find, and parking was readily available along the street. The restaurant is located in a lovely spot along the ocean, though we were not able to sit... More

We enjoyed an early dinner at Azenhas do Mar and were very happy to enjoy seeing the sun set at the same time. The food is delicious but a bit pricey. It is worth a visit to try local fresh seafood and enjoy the view.

Small Luxury experience. The best Fish. Excellent service. Best Varanda in Portugal. Best Sunset. Genuine Place. Simple. Genuine Food. Last month had a perfect Sunset , having a perfect White Wine with the sunset for company. I am a local, and there are not many places like this in the Area.

Very good and fresh fish. We watched the sun set from our table. One of us had steak, which was disappointing in quality. We were also put in a "family" room with small and noiy kids running around, which was occasionally a nuisance. Pricey, but worth the splurge. The owner fishes, so ask for his catch of the day and...
