Nice Spot to Take Lunch

I and the family visited this restaurant for lunch from the prior recommendations in TA whilst we were holidaying over the border in Ayamonte and we weren’t disappointed.

I like Portuguese fish dishes. We use to visit Algarve or Porto once or twice a year. My favourite meals are sardinas and cod (bacalhau). In my opinion Restaurant 2000 in Vila Real San Antonio has the best grilled bacalhau in Algarve. All the other fish dishes are also exellent! I can also recommend house vine (vino verde) in carafe,... More

I have eaten here several times in 2013 and again in 2014. The food has always been exceptionally delicious, the staff friendly and efficient. The Bacalhau a bras is on of the best I've had in Portugal and the daily specials, always tasty, plentiful and inexpensive. Don't let the name fool you.....it's more than a "snack bar" and I'm not...

It may not be to everyone's taste but the wild boar (shot by the owner) was absolutely delicious. A new dessert - baked sweet potato was creamy and tasty. As ever the black pork is sure to please and there is always a good selection of fresh fish. The cataplanas are also something to enjoy.

Fernando was very helpful with explaining the menu and helped us choose black pork dishes that were really tasty. All in all a very enjoyable dining experience.

Found this place quite by accident, but what a find. Had shellfish cataplana for 4 on our first visit. Wow, what a fantastic meal. Decided to go back 2 days later and had port and prawn kebabs and were not disappointed. A great good value restaurant with a nice atmosphere
