“Fantastic fresh seafood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

The seafood was amazing, I had prawns chargrilled on the barbeque they had a really lovely chargrilled flavour and were the size of small lobsters. My husband had the shrimp in peri peri, we throughly enjoyed the simple but beautifully cooked food. The service was professional and the atmosphere fun. Great little spot for people watching too, right in the heart of the village.

“Below-average food, but you may not have a choice”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2011

The best thing I can say about Restaurante Chaparro is that it was open. None of the other restaurants was. This is a tiny tourist town that shuts down in the off-season. And April is, apparently, very much off-season in Odeceixe.

We were the only people in the restaurant and, probably, the only tourists in town. Everything we ordered was disappointing. The grilled octopus was bland and slightly rubbery. The cuttlefish was inedible. My father had some kind of a seafood mush dish, served in a hollowed-out loaf of bread. I tried it, and all I could taste was salt. Odeceixe is 4km from the sea, but I'm pretty sure none of the food was fresh.

The waiter was pleasant enough, but not particularly helpful or interested.
