Good seafood

We had some big seashell stew for two. There were crabs, mussels, clams and prawns in sauce. We got it with rice. It was really tasty and price was good.

That is really not that much more to say. It is the best. Staff great, the place is a little old but does the job, nothing fancy. Just a heads up: if you ask for a panachê, which is beer mixed with a 7up like soda, that usually costs the same as a beer in most places, here they will... More

This is by far the best seafood restaurant in Town. We started our holiday with a trip to the famous furnas marisqueira, but it was not even close to the seafood served at mar a vista. The spider crab is something anyone into seafood would simply looove.

Another amazing experience at Mar à Vista always with the most fresh sea food/shell fish you can get! Friendly service that makes you feel at home. This time tried shrimps, santola(kind of crab) oysters and lavagante(kind of lobster) and everything was amazing again!!!

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!
