A very good fish restaurant. We go there at least once a week when in Portugal. Service is typical Portuguese slow but not too bad. The food makes up for that.

The food is nice and the staff is friendly but the service seems to be very very slow. It could've been better.

Really... Nothing special. Being a local inhabitant, I really can't say that is a good restaurant... The fish was more or less, the steak was only OK... Don't order Italian food, from the same owner. Really sucks big time! Try another one.

I thought we'd try another restaurant in Peniche and we went to this place. For a change, we ordered grilled mixed fish (5 types of fishes). It was okay but priced a bit much.

Came over with my wife and my parents for a good fish night out. Not disappointed at all!!! Had very good memories of the seafood in Peniche in the past and this restaurant was perfect to remind me what I was missing. The place was busy, but when asked for a table we were kindly accommodated, we had couple of... More

Had chef special grilled skewer of fish and prawns which was nice, but was a little undercooked. 3 of the 4 of us had bad stomachs the next day :( not good. Service was good, food tasted nice, but obviously was either not cooked properly or not managed. Would not return

The restaurant looked inviting so we decided to eat here when passing by. It's modern looking and definitely one of the more trendy places in Peniche. If you stick to the fish plates on the menu I don't believe you will walk away disappointed. We took the fish stew for two and a medium cooked steak. Portions are generous and... More

Great seafood, though very very loud and stressful atmosphere inside the restaurant. We had a very friendly and helpful waiter that recommended a great wine for us which was actually even cheaper than the one we ordered first. Seemed like they didn't want to get rid of us though cause it took us 3 times to ask for the bill... More

Can't believe the negative reviews. Staff very pleasant and friendly. Seafood excellent. We had the mixed plate for two including lobster, swordfish, salmon etc and the children had small sea bass. I would recommend this place to everyone. It felt genuine. Good value. We had two courses and coffee and the bill came to over 110 euros but that included... More
