It's quite a home coocking restaurant, with fresh ocean's fish and big portions. Be careful, as everywhere in Porto's restaurant, to orders on your account bill. Everything went very well and the food was excellent.

This restaurant i wouldn't call as exquisite. They provide rather simle seeafood, mostly grilled garnished with boiled potato. But i've never eat such a freshiest fish and delisious vinho verde. I was impressed by espetada de marisco.

This restaurant is an absolute pleasure. It is not pretentious, you can feel welcoming home-like atmosphere, the food is the best I have tried around Porto in category of seafood and fish. The prices are very nice and the portions are huge, so I think it's a good idea to share a meal. I completely recommend this place, from all... More

Had lunch at this restaurant today - felt like we had joined a family for lunch! Very friendly and helpful but be warned the servings are enormous! Had the sole - 2 fish plus potatoes, carrots, beans, Brussels spouts and the calamari with the same extras! Both were delicious!!!! Not sure I could eat a plate of the barnacles though!... More

I had lunch at this restaurant last week. The place is not very easy to find but if you ask around everyone will point you in the right direction. The food is excellent. I had the famous sea food rice (arroz de marisco) and I was really impressed. The restaurant is located in the fisherman village, so you can only... More
