Good seafood restaurant if you are patient enough

It's a very atmospheric place with nice sea-theme interior. The food is very good if you're patient to wait for it. We got the starter in 40 minutes and it was a cold octopus that didn't need a lot of preparation.

We took the grilled seabass, which was very good. With outstanding potatoes! We had a mixed salad to start with and a bottle of housewine. Perfect meal for a moderate price!

Went to Pescador during our golfing holiday to Vilamoura. They coped really well with our large party and I think everyone in the group was pleased with their meal. I had the Chateaubriend which was particularly nice but quite pricey. Definitely worth a visit.

Very good food and friendly service. Not too expensive. Other reviewers wrote about the quality of the fish not being the best. Still, the food was excellent.

We were incredibly disappointed on our first attempt to visit to realise we had chosen a day when the restaurant was closed at lunchtime. However we returned on the Friday night - 4 adults, three teenagers and had a fantastic meal. The highlight was the sea bass stuffed with crab - absolutely delicious. The restaurant was very good value with... More

According of same reviews about this restaurant is normal food and nothing more. The chef needs 1 thing, go to Sesimbra or Setubal to learn what is good fish. For sure there are more fish restaurants in viana better than this .

Couldn't understand why the restaurant wasn't packed as it was so good. Then realised the football was on in Lisbon! Had it not am sure it would have been teeming. Food was superb, great service and wasn't expensive.

We ate lunch here in early September and the whole meal and restaurant experience was excellent.

Maybe a bad menu choice but seafood rice with lobster was so bland and ordinary it could have been made better at home. It was further spoilt by the bitter green tomalley in the lobster spoiling everything in contact including the usually sweet meat in the tail. Pictures and reviews led us there but we would not recommend at all.... More

In mid-September we went here for lunch and again for dinner on the following day, and on both occasions found it to be good value with very little to criticise. The atmosphere was relaxed, the service friendly but generally prompt and efficient. The fish was grilled to perfection, without the lashings of garlic and olive oil which some Portuguese restaurants... More
