All over good.

We were a group of people who all had the crab for starters. Our main was mix seafood, and it was delicious. I'll be dreaming about it. 😋

Looks very nice on the inside but.... As if we are doing the waiters a favor eating there. Food lousy, oily, fish and chips all mushy. Re-heated food?? Very expensive for the quality served. Would not recommend this restaurant. Parking available on the left side.

Rude waiters. Food tasted like it was re-heated. Grilled fish was dry and sauté potato tasted like baked/fried. Very expensive for what it offers. There are better "fast food" around. No come back !!

I visit this restaurant for a business lunch on Sunday, it was not crowed, we had to wait a couple of minutes. We've tried octopus and Paella. It was wonderful, excellent. It isn't cheap, but is very very nice.

This restaurant is an excellent choice for who wants to eat a seafood dish. I recommend a “badejo a la bella maniere”, which serves well 03 peoples with a fish fillet, capers, champignon and sauté potatoes. Excellent taste and seasoning.

Great portions of very fresh sea food. One portion serves two or three persons. Best Greek style shrimp. Arrive early, they do not accept reservations and there is normally a waiting queue. Bu, it Worth.

We came by recommendation of a friend. We ordered the rose wine and whenbit came the waiter did not wait for me to taste it, just served the wine. It was a sweet one and we didn't like it but he refused to change the bottle. Overall a pictoresque character that waiter. I liked the food overall but the peacada... More

Great place to taste seafood. Dishes are very well served, enough sometimes for 3, what makes the price more friendly, since it is not a cheap place at all. Waiters are very good and do their job with care and attention. After the refurbishment the restaurant looks nicer and the quality remained very good. The paella is great and serves... More

This small restaurant is located in a region that usually has more locals than tourists. The view faces the port, seats are confortable and service staff is friendly and fast. The menu has mainly fish and seafood dishes. I recommend fish "a moda da casa", very tasty, comes with rice, vegetables and potatoes. Also the octopus was tender and tasty.
