The Mariscada specialises in seafood and is located on the road running alongside the harbour, and with its floor-to-ceiling glass windows has excellent views to the sea and marina. We both had 4 oysters each €8 to start - they were very good and good value. For main course we then had a whole Dourada (€50 per kilo) to share... More

Food wasn't bad but service was terrible. Slow you expect, but very informal, forgetting things. we had to remind them several times of things we had asked for.

Family owned & run restaurant on the marina. Traditional Portuguese food specialising in fish & seafood. Beautiful, tasty paella accompanied by House Red - delicious! Very reasonable.

This restaurant is a real Portuguese treat on the first corner of the Marina with a beautiful sunset view. A traditional family run restaurant who always does their best for you. Great cover arrives as you peruse the extensive menu. Prawns are always the best choice but if you have the time the traditional Cataplana is great. Great kebabs and... More

We walked past this place once and should have kept on going !! Sadly the pizza place down the marina was full so we came back . Very inefficient kitchen - all our main courses arrived at different times, one order was completely wrong so from the time the first person was served to the last person getting their meal... More

Went here for a meal one Thursday evening, 5 adults. Lovely view of the marina, unfortunately the service was awful. The staff were nice but the food came at separate times - the first and last meals out were half an hour apart so one of us was finished before one had even got their food. The food was gorgeous...

Ate here on the first night of our holiday and this was because we were in a large party and people just wanted to eat as they were jaded from travelling. It was the first place we came to as it's at the start of the Marina. It was 'ok' they tried hard to accommodate us as we were in... More

The restaurant is in the heart of the marina and I would say one of the busiest which does mean that this isn't a restaurant to go to for a leisurely dinner or the best service. The food is amazing in particular the monkfish & prawn kebab which is really a hooked skewer with massive prawns interspersed with monkfish. Highly... More

Seven of us went for dinner in here one evening. The menu is pretty good but the restaurant needs a bit of a clean - the windows overlooking the marina for instance were filthy with bits of old tape on them I guess to keep out drafts over the winter. Just needs a bit more T@C to be great As... More

We were enticed into this restaurant on the first night of our holiday by the delightful waitress. We returned every night, great service and atmosphere. The monkfish cataplana was exceptional as we're the garlic prawns, ate there 6 nights, never disappointed.
