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!

We went for a work dinner with a big group and informed them earlier. The staff are accommodating and the food was mostly very good, except for the shrimp that seems to be have been fried rather than grilled, further the octopus was overcooked. Overall the food was great, the wine recommendations very good and properly matched with the food.... More

Well located in the village, with good views of the bay, this restaurant offers fresh fish but also have meat in the menu, with very good options. Very good service and ambience.

Even that the price is a bit expensive, it worth to be here once and a while, Staff is friendly, food is awesome... any dish I guess. Location as no comparison with any others, in the beautiful Sesimbra coast. Decoration is clean, sober and nice to be

The view is nice cause of the glass outlook, but not very good atmosphere. Decent and very fresh fish dishes make up for this.
