Come here already many years. Food is great, eat there only seafood. The clamps and tiger shrimps are the best I ever eat. Not one of the cheapest but once in while worth it for me to go there.

Great service. Best octopus salad I have ever had - very fresh and not chewy at all. Friend had seafood salad and would highly highly recommend it too. Fish was fresh and well cooked but the starters really made the meal for us.

Brilliant service, excellent food, friendly staff (very patient as their English is as good as our Portuguese). Have now eaten a few Steak Portuguese and this was the best so far.... Not hard to find, it's at the end of the beach and well worth the walk.

I live in Porto and I have to say that this restaurant has one of the best shelfish rices ever! I definitely recommend it! If want to try this restaurant be sure to order the shelfish rice and drink a "alvarinho soalheiro" white wine! However be careful with the prices!

I´ve been here a few times with my girlfriend (who is Portuguese) and I have really enjoyed the beautiful fresh prawns here with toast (and lots of lovely butter). The other dishes are nice too. Good cabrito assado and other meat. Nice wines and very friendly and helpful staff. The atmosphere is great whether very full and buzzing with families... More

While it seems this restaurant ifs a bit oddly situated, it truly represents s cabana in the dunes. The food is of good quality and here you will find a true hearty Portuguese meal of either meat or seafood.

We ordered crab, octopus salat and grilled calamari. We got a cold crab and the octopus salat was with some strange jelly in it. After that bad start we hoped that the grilled calamari would be better. But they were not eatable. We did not had such an unenjoyable dinner for years. I cannot recommend the seafood in this restaurant... More

We had a superb late lunch at this restaurant after our friend Piers Gallie, owner of Quinta do Convento da Franqueira in Barcelos, recommended it. The staff were excellent and although I speak Portuguese they gave my wife a menu in English. Drinks came swiftly (always a good sign in my book) along with local bread and olives. My wife... More
