Lovely food, service hurried and distant

Our second night in Portugal and we dined here on the recommendation of our hotel. The food (octapus salad, vegetable soup and a mixed fish grill) was wonderful but the service was distinctly unfriendly and rushed. The restaurant was no more than half full but dishes were delivered and cleared... read more

Our second night in Portugal and we dined here on the recommendation of our hotel. The food (octapus salad, vegetable soup and a mixed fish grill) was wonderful but the service was distinctly unfriendly and rushed. The restaurant was no more than half full but dishes were delivered and cleared away with indecent haste and no friendly smiles. Our question... More

We had been recommended to go here, otherwise would not have chosen it from the look of its exterior. It is a big restaurant on the road parallel to but away from the beach, and we were the only diners. Good choice of fish which we were able to inspect before they were cooked. Fish was excellent and the wine... More

The restaurant looks unassuming and doesn't have a charming exterior or interior or even a very good location, with a road instead of beach frontage. The beach is just a minute's walk away though. There are tanks of fish and lobster at the front, as well as posters of the menu. The food was amazing - we had a seafood... More

We'd been here before and had the Seafood that comes in it's own fishing boat. So, this time we decided to try the more standard seafood dishes on the menu, my wife having a massive salmon fillet and I tried the Dorado or sea bream, neither of which disappointed. The price is set similar to other similar restaurants in the... More

Visited with 7 other guys whilst on a golf trip. Restaurant was recommended and did not disappoint. All locals apart from ourselves which is usually a good sign. Had the large boat starters full of all that is good about seafood. Relaxed atmosphere, owner is a character. Would definitely return. Its not fine dining but was friendly and the food... More

We have holidayed in Quarteira many times and always like to try new restaurants. So when the taxi driver recommended the Marisqueira we thought we would try it out. The food was good but we all thought the service was 'rushed' and they also got one of our orders wrong. However the main reason why we will not be going... More

We went here in Sept 2014 on the recommendation of both our cab driver and another local, and enjoyed one of the best meals we've ever had. The restaurant is very relaxed - from the outside it looks more like a cafe - and the fish was just delicious. We had the shellfish boat, which seems to be the speciality,... More

We were staying in nearby Vilamoura and were wholly disappointed by the array of Irish/English pubs and indian/chinese/pre fabricated food so asked for something local and this place has it in spades. It's very busy and staff can be a bit abrupt because you can't speak Portuguese, but the food is excellent, very family friendly and the fish, well that's... More

Waited 30 mins for table! Got one! One of us was served starter and main an hour before the other got any food! Bill was extortionate! Couldn't get a waiter to refresh our drinks! Service was awful! Won't go there again! Awful

Fantastic food nice setting. We had starters and a main (main being a seafood platter) which all was delicious - the only fault being there was an insane amount of food and a recommendation lacking as to the quantity of food.
