This is probably the best restaurant in town. Ive tried them all! Here you get 2 things that usually you don't get around. Almost every restaurant around delivers good food, specially fish and sea food. In Celmar, apart from that, you also get amazing boar, wild pigeon, partridge and hare! All... read more

Celmar is a small restaurant in the heart of the Meco village. My family and I go there every year in Summer in order to have their Arroz de Marisco (Seafood Rice). I can guarantee it is probably one of the best I have ever had. You have the option of having it with lobster or not (35 for 2... More

We had dinner twice at "Celmar" restaurant during our holiday in Portugal, and both times the food was very good. They offer a really great selection of any kind of seafood, and you can chose whatever you want after having a look at the different dishes they offer. One night the service was very professional, the other night it was... More

Nothing special but this is the best in Meco. Decent Portuguese food friendly service. I little more expensive than the the quality of the restaurant would justify but it's closeness to the beach adds a few euro to the bill.

A simple restaurant but with an amazing choice of fresh fish and seafood. And the price is acceptable and the service is excellent.

Very very good seafood and fish! Maybe crowded in July and august, but still worth a try, as the service is also very nice.

Everytime we return to Portugal we make a mandatory dinner(s) at Celmar. For many years we have been returning and we are always amazed with the constant quality of food and service. The owner and his wife are very good patrons and the fish and seadfood is absolutely superb. Oysters are a must in our meals. I can't comment about... More

This is one of the most known places in Meco (Sesimbra). It's located in the village center and has a nice esplanade. It's a lovely place, typically Portuguese, full of fresh nice and tasty fish and sea food. For those who enjoy meat better you have a long menu with several nice options. Try the boar with fried bread and... More

The food is great. As we are near the sea, fish and seafood are excellent. Probably not very quiet in the Summer but it's worth a visit.
