We ordered fresh grilled fish and it's as fresh as I speak. I totally loved it. The whole experience with Portugal, local food, freshly caught fish,local wine, sun and smell of the sea. It was very relaxing. I was taken there by my friend who is Portuguese a I was just enjoying it. Definitely worth it.

I was taken there by my Portuguese friend and her parents and I have to say that I was amazed just when we were driving towards the restaurant. It's perfect setting by the see and in the country site. The sun was blazing, we sat in the terrace and ordered some Portuguese beer and fresh grilled fish. It must have... More

Fantastic fresh fish, as you would expect from a place that is just metres from the small fishing harbour :)

Mixed reviews on here but we gave it a go. Simple grilled fish but exquisite. We had the turbot which was delicious and seasoned with the special in house marinade. Give it a chance and enjoy dinner as the Portuguese would.

My fish tasted of bacon and swam in oil. The fattest dish I've ever eaten. Second dish-octopus- better but also fat. Wine not bad but nothing special for the region. Service not helpful, not nice, indifferent. Ambience not spectacular too. Seriously overpriced compared to other Zambuejira's restaurants and food quality doesn't justify that.

Great food, great location, but reasonable service. It's a widely known restaurant, but maybe if the service was better (and faster) it would become fantastic.

We liked the food and dessert but the service was amateurish - they forgot the entreé, were unable to supply informations about the menu, and poor wine service. For €25 one can certainly find better offers

A small seafood restaurant/cafe just north of Zambujeira do Mar. We were fortunate to eat there three times (morning coffee/cake and two lunches).. The restaurant is just above the jetty where fresh fish is landed daily. Much of it makes its way up to O Sacas, where the delightful young waitress sets the fish out in a beautiful display in...
