One of the oldest Seafood Restaurant, with top quality

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.

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
