Very good seafood

Typical Portuguese seafood at its best! The menu is a bit limited and the place is a little pricey but ...if you want quality and fresh sea food you must be ready to pay!!! And it is worth at Mar a Vista!!

I've been there many times, sitting in and taking seafood away! It's probably one of the best seafood restaurants I've tried!

I was almost disappointed in Ericeira when it comes to food had I not tried this unpretentious restaurant that only serves shellfish. For a starter, we ordered a plate of tasty barnacles and shrimps. Eating barnacles was a pleasant discovery since this is an exotic crustacean to me. The 1 1/2 kg. spider crab which was good for two was... More

Amazing restaurant with fresh and perfect seafood options! If you understand the concept you will start with some shrimps, after a crab, and finish with a lobster all with an amazing flavour of Portugal... Try also a "prego" and the lemon sorbet to balance your mouth before leave. In another countries when you tried seafood it doesn't taste the same,... More

This is probably one of the oldest restaurants at Ericeira. Specialized in seafood you can count on the quality of the product, always fresh!

One of the best restaurants and one of the oldest. Situated right on the shoreline , overlooking the fishing port and beach praia dos pescadores, at the heart of Ericeira

If you want something else than seafood, don’t go here! But you want seafood, this is THE spot: fresh just boiled or the delicious "seafood rice " or seafood with pasta are an unforgettable experience! The only "minus" is the waiting time to get a table if you go at lunch time...it's always full!

Was such a great first experience in Portugal. Explained things how the restaurant prices worked for the seafood. So friendly and made us feel welcome! The food was amazing and we come from the west coast of Canada!

The night before we went, we had passed it and it looked very busy,but the night we went there it was empty apart from one table and they were finishing off their meal. Husband asked... More

Ate here twice... We loved how simple the seafood was prepared. We had the goose barnacle and clams on both our visits. The food is prepared with pride. The service is wonderful and we loved that the restaurant has been in the family for generations. I highly recommend this place for a awesome seafood meal.
