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...

The best view in Portugal and Great food! The surf at high tide is mesmerizing. Staff was friendly. Shrimp curry was wonderful! A must visit restaurant. Will definitely go again is ever in the area again.

After reading all the good reviews about this restaurant, we wanted to go in that "wonderful" place. What a disappointment! Waiters weren't smiling at all, we had the impression to annoy them as soon as we arrived. Then we wanted grilled fish but the choice was very poor (only croaker as we were 2, the same price as bass or... More

We chose a table outside (which I recommend), and the view was absolutely stunning! The food was really good overall (oysters, lobster & risotto) although the lobster was particularly expensive (close to 100€ - I guess that was the price to pay for choosing your lobster live right from the tank). Service was good, all in all a really nice... More

One of the most delicious pieces of fish I have ever eaten. Amidst a beautiful backdrop. The bill for 4 of us, including wine, was only 80 euros - very pleasantly surprised! Friendly waiter also showed us their new roof terrace which was absolutely stunning. Really glad we visited. When we go back to lisbon we'll return for sure.

It was our most tasty dinner in Portugal. Yes is was a little more expensive, than on the average about the country, but it was worth it. Fish soup, tagliatelle with a scallop and a shrimp and a chocolate pie for a dessert - everything simply magic taste. Personnel very attentive. I advise to all! And so magic atlantic view... More

We weren't sure we wanted to risk getting lost on the way Azenhas, so we almost stayed in Sintra for dinner because we'd already had a long travel day from the US. Boy, are we glad we went! The view is simply breathtaking. Perched on a cliff above the sea, seemingly in the middle of nowhere, is this restaurant with... More

This restaurant was recommended by our innkeeper. It did not disappoint. We took the waiter's recommendation and had incredible fish and local fare. Most importantly, our young children were treated amazingly by the staff, showing them the fresh fish tanks so we could enjoy our meal and the view.
