Two Great Dinners in Nazare, Portugal

Food OK. As it was January it was generally quite cold, however there was a portable gas heater in the restaurant which warmed us up after after a while. We ordered our meal, which was mediocre to say the least, more vegetables than fish! Another couple walked in and immediately directed the heater in their direction before sitting down, without...

The place and the owner are kinda quirky but the food was excellent and fresh. I had a menu for 17 €. It included drink and a choice of dessert. The house fish stew had several fish catch of the day with potatoes on a tomatoey broth. It was very good and we could not finish the large portion.

A local fish restaurant, located on the center of Nazare, wortwhile to visit, anyway the choice of fresh fish on this period, was not the best, good service and atmosphere, mostly foreign clients. As I disn't taste, very good evaluation for Caldeirada, for portuguese people.

I believe Portuguese understands 'DASHI' of sea food. We enjoyed Arroz de Marisco, 25 Euro for two persons, with rise, many two types shrimps, mussels and half? of crab. All stuffs are well mixed and complete this arroz. We eat crab with breaking down with hummer. When we came here, half of other tables enjoyed grilled fish which I would... More

We had both lunch and dinner there. The food (Seafood) fresh and tasty. The caldereida (seafood stew) grilled prawns, grilled fish just excellent. Had a mixture of locals and tourists, Maria and her daughters do an excellent job of attending to diners. Back in the states now keep thinking of the food.

The arroz de marisco was just delicious, good portion and flavoured...my parents had the fish mix grill and they also enjoyed it very much, saying the fish was very tasty and clean. The only let...

I still dream about this meal. The seafood caldeira (hot pot of amazing seafood with everything you could ever want in it). It's been about 3-4 years since I've been to Nazare, but I still dream about this meal constantly. I believe we can come around May/June. It was rainy and Nazare was just a stop-over for the night on... More

Stopped in for lunch! Nice local family owned restaurant. The fish and food was delicious! The owner was very attentive. It's small but worth the wait if it's crowded when you arrive...
