We stopped in Nazaré along the Atlantic coast. We had lunch at Mar Bravo. We had baby squid as an appetizer and the fish stew and lobster with rice. All dishes were fantastic. Best seafood yet in Portugal. We asked to speak with the chef as we were very impressed by the quality of the food. The service was impecable.

Every one should be informed that this place is the most desgusting place i ever been eating in Portugal. This people have no respect for the clients, and only serve frozen cheep fish with no quality what so ever. The owners are the same of the Hotel Praia and they instruct the staff to tell the clients to go to... More

A lunch of clams steamed in garlic butter raised our expectations. On a Saturday, the place was almost empty and we noted a place full of locals across the street and a large tour group exiting the hotel for a dinner. We shared the cataplanas - a medley of cod, prawns, and mussels cooked in a large metal pot with... More

Excellent fresh sea bass and sardines, all round an excellent meal. We had a party of 13 people, and despite the large group and the fact that we all ordered different dishes, the food arrived in a timely manner and all dishes were well prepared and fresh. It was a very memorable lunch time meal, and if we are ever... More

We went into the Mar Bravo after spotting it during our walk n the beach. The waiter was very attentive and took our orders quickly: fried sardines and a typical sea food and fish Calderon. It took the dishes to arrive 90 minutes. There were maybe 3 or 4 other tables. The food was good, but it does not excuse... More

The lack of music and clientele, made for a poor atmosphere. At our table two steaks arrived under done (medium rare requested, served rare). They took the steaks back to cook further, and were gone so long the rest of the table had finished, and the chips served with said steaks were eaten. Suffice it to say, the steaks were... More

Again the Michelin Guide gave us an unreliable piece of advice. Decided to throw the app away after this. Very nice place, nice décor, amazing view. That’s it. The place was crowded with groups, service was very, very slow and food poor. I had the worst bacahlau of my trip: poorly presented, so salty it was inedible. Neither my friends... More

Good choice for scenic ocean views, and fresh seafood. The dining rooms is bright, lively and nicely decorated. The menu has a great selection of local seafood favorites and prices are reasonable. We stopped for lunch, which might have been a mistake given the restaurant caters to large tour groups. Service was slow, but friendly and probably impacted by the... More

Good wine card, nice view (as long as the beach is not occupied by hundreds of tourists, I guess). The staff was friendly but the food was quite expensive and we found it not satisfying. Octopus as a starter ( with grilled garlic) was bathed in oil and only warm ( in my humble opinion should be served sizzling hot)... More
