This restaurant was recommended to us by Sagres Time Apartments. Great fish, local food and fantastic friendly service (in English!)

“Solid quality tourist fish place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2015

Near the harbour in Sagres, this is a standard fish place with friendly service, fresh ingredients and good value for money.

“Great Discovery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2015

We found this restaurant by accident and after a very good first meal here we decided to return today for a second visit, 6 of us this time. As 2 of our friends had never had cataplana before we suggested this to them, in fact all 6 of us had the fish cataplana with fresh monkfish etc. Admittedly we had to wait for a while, but this showed that the food was freshly cooked. While waiting we enjoyed a caraffe of sangria. The cataplana was excellent and I would suggest this to anyone visiting this restaurant; our friends who had not had catap[lana before found it delicious .Excellent traditional Portuguese cuisine at a very reasonable price.

“Food is good but you do have to wait”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2014

We were in Sagres for the afternoon/evening and where in need of a place to eat after visiting the fish market so decided to go here, this may not have been the best idea. When we sat down everything started well.

We enquired what fresh fish they had and was informed that they had sea bass and sea bream but was then advised they had fresh sardines which would have been impossible considering the sardine quota had been met for the year back in September.

We ordered and proceeded to wait 45 minutes for the food to be cooked but when it did arrive it was lovely, very mixed feelings about this place believe it could do with some minor improvements.

“Good traditional Portuguese cooking”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2014

Ate here twice on our recent holiday to Sagres. The restaurant isn't fancy but serves good value Portuguese food. Dishes we tried included the Sardines, mixed grill (a little dry but ok) and grilled chicken (lovely marinade). Dinner for 2 with bread & butter to start and a couple of small beers less than €25. Also noted that several locals were eating here too.
