Another hidden-away eaterie serving good local dishes and well favoured by the Portuguese community. Tourists and local expats are discovering it and tables can be difficult to get. Prices are very reasonable and their fresh fish is perfectly cooked. Give it a try!

At first glance, I thought that I would love this little restaurant - I was wrong. Unfortunately the food and poor hygiene let this restaurant down badly. Dirty glasses should have been an early warning. My steak was ok, but rather undercooked for a medium. The accompanying sauce was not good and the salad was past its best. My wife... More

Visited this restaurant on a very busy Sunday night. Food was uncomplicated but well prepared and good value. Only slight draw back was the solitary waiter was rushed off his feet so the service was a bit erratic. Overall if you want local cuisine in a central location then I would recommend this restaurant.

We have visited the Belmar frequently over the past 4 years and found the food to be consistently good, the fish is excellent, the steak is superb and it is priced very reasonably. You cant go wrong.

Less tourists than in nearby restaurants, this is probably the 'real Portuguese experience'. It's really cheap, portions are large, food is average to good, some olive oil used in preparation ;-))

We've eaten here a couple of times and it's been either delicious or so-so. Best advice would be to see what other diners are having. The clam starter is tasty and very fresh and the prawns wrapped in bacon and grilled are always good, In fact I think the fish is better than the grilled meat which tends to be... More
