Relaxed atmosphere with excellent seafood but also other dishes e.g. steak, wild boar, pheasant available. Great service and very welcoming at a reasonable price.

We had a dinner with the whole family and everything was very good! Except for the octopus food was just great. Would not recommend the octopus, but fish and beef are really delicious and the service is good. Nice place for dinner!

I am a tour guide for Ajsa Tours and I was here with 2 clients that wanted to experience good portuguese food. I chose this restaurant and the clients were delighted. Very good location at the beach and good quality. I will come back.

Personally, I think that this restaurant is under rated. We arrived in Sesimbra in the afternoon and walked the coastal promenade. We looked at numerous restaurants for our evening meal.

My partner is a big fish eater, I am not. He loved the prawns and I had a steak, surprisingly good considering its a seafront fish reaturant. Great value, not much of an atmosphere, but still an enjoyable meal.

Nice seafront restaurant offering a great variety of fresh seafood. We ate here several times and were never disappointed. I would particularly recommend the local ham, the Oven baked Octopus with Roasted potatoes, the monk fish & mixed seafood rice, the grilled red snapper and the swordfish with onion sauce. Not to mention the excellent desserts - the chocolate soup... More

A nice restaurant that serves fresh fish by the beach. We had the swordfish and seabass and they were both great. The service is good too. Go there!
