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. 😋

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.

The Mar del Plata offers good seafood. The place itself is rather small and nothing special. The price is a little bit on the upside.

If you would like to have a good typical seafood meal in santos this is the place to go. We have tried many places and this is one of the better ones for sure. As far as Brazil / Santos goes you will not go wrong with this choice.
