“A lovely fish restaurant next to the ocean”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2012

We went there as two families with kids. We got a table next to the window with a great view to the ocean. The food was delicious. It was a sunny Sunday and the place was packed. Although we were (obviously) tourists we got a good service and we were not asked to speed up even we spent almost 4 hours for dining. We really enjoyed our meal and will definitely come back again.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2012

Excellent fish, although not the cheapest. Views are great during the day.

“Good food but pricey”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2011

We were 3 at the dinner table (well presented by the way).
Eated swordfish (€12) made like the traditional portuguese steak and it was excellent.
We also eated an entry of Clams "Bulhao Pato style" (Bulhao Pato was a portuguese writter from the XIX century) at the price of €49/kilo! It was also very good but too much expensive.
Drinked the white house wine (bottle) from the Douro region -- a good choice for the price (€9).
Swift and professional service but no smiles at all...
Total price: €100 (drinks included).

“Nice but caters for bus tours as well”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2011

A warning sign was the aprking lot, large enough to accomodate tour buses. A large and very noisy group spolied the night. Food was nice, wine was good.
