A pleasure that the world offers us in Sesimbra

Cozy restaurant, beautiful sea views, service professional and efficient. Menu varied, based on fish dishes. The making of the famous "caldeirada à pescador", although in a generous amount, on the day of our visit showed a lack of that final touch that would make it unforgettable. Maybe in the... read more

Good family friendly restaurant, with yummy fresh fish. The restaurant was always very busy with a mix of locals and tourists while we were staying in Sesimbra. The location is right on the sea front with good views

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.

Restaurant situated on the promenade overlooking the sea with plenty of seating on three levels. Great choice of local fish and shell fish on display and tanks with mussels and crayfish from which to choose. First night we had a selection of dishes, mussels, medium prawns, prawn curry with mango and wild rice, chips - which were actually thick hot... More

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.
