Husband and I visit Ericeira two to three times a year and had never been here so husband said we should give it a try. 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.

These guys know their seafood. It's all fresh, and prepared in a simple way to leave to focus on the seafood. They had great advice (in English) about what to order, and how to have it prepared. Definitely a highlight of Ericiera. The kids loved checking out the live lobster before it was cooked, No frills. None needed.

I'm a regular at this very unique and amazing restaurant and have no intentions if going to any other seafood restaurant in Ericeira while their door remains open! This is by far the best restaurant around! Brought a friend from Oporto who was "in the mood for seafood". He was not disappointed! The seafood was amazing as always! We had... More

A small "hole in the wall" type place.. But the shellfish there is simply among the very best. Clams, barnacles, crabs (regular and "spider"), lobsters et alia. All this prepared and served simply yet perfectly. And this with great local wines! We make a point of always staying a day or two (three) in Ericeira, when in Portugal, and this... More

We though we would try this place which was recommended by lonely planet, but having been there have no idea why! The food is essentially just shellfish, not terribly complicated to put together but obviously needs to be fresh (which it is anywhere along the coast here!). So, we were puzzled as to why it was more expensive than most... More

simple restaurant serving only seafood (a tip of the former director of Lapa Palace ...). The lobsters and crabs are still a live in the front of the restaurant while you make up your mind. No tricks but two older portuguese ladies giving their best shot at you in the small kitchen. No complexity but straight heavenly food. We had... More

Be patient, if you are in a hurry this is not the restaurant for you, at weekend you will have to wait, try to book in advance. The seafood is always fresh, more fresh than that you won't get in Ericeira, well cooked. The rooms are not that spacious but you get the opportunity to feel a friendly atmosphere. Prices... More

This litlle restaurant doesn't look much from the outside, but it is something else when we are talking about seafood. It stays in Ericeira, a litlle fishermen village in Portugal. The village is beautiful with the Atlantic ocean and the little white houses. Here you can eat the best seafood I tasted anywhere in the world. You can choose from... More
