Very good

This is not the best restaurant in Sesimbra but is definitely one of the best relation price-quality. You can choose between a cheap fish or a high price obe and both will have the best quality. Service could be faster, but it was regular. The desert was "fabulastic": a brand new creation... read more

We had a nice dinner made from fresh grilled fish. Our first idea was to try the sardines, but as it was not the season we had the Imperador. It was really delicacy. As we visited the place in march it wasn't too busy and we really had the good time - perfect view with the perfect meal.

I've been to this restaurant more then a few times. The grilled fish is usually really good even though pricy if you're looking for that. Other more elaborated dishes are very good although not always. I've eaten a grilled steak that is absolutely delicious, but one of the 3 times I've eaten it, it was dry, which was a disappointment.... 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

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 next visit ...

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.
