New seafood cuisine

Very good seafood cuisine! The restaurant is amazing. The food is very good and very different from the traditional seafood of the Santos restaurants that I have been. Here are some pictures of the food that I have ordered.

We had great seafood lunch in this restaurant in front of Santos beaches. Camarones where absolutely fantastic, fresh and well prepared, tasty and seasoned. A great plate. Other fishes where also very appetizing accompanied with local vegetables. The octopuss salad as starter was also great. Prices in consequence but worth trying it.

This restaurant is a great choice if you are a big fan of seafood. It is located in a privilege spot so you can enjoy good food with a great view.

Led by Portuguese owner and chef Garcia from Coimbra, established in Santos for over 30 years, offering a marvelous menu of Portuguese dishes (hard to choose the cod fishes, all of them are fantastic) in a beautiful restaurant facing the sea, a delightful experience! and service is outstanding as well.

This is the place to go in Santos. In fact, it is worth just going to Santos to try the food.

Fantastic.... More
