“Celtic yes!! Chips no!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2015

The first visit was great though we had a problem convincing them we didn't want chips or indeed potatoes. The second time I had steak which wasn't cheap and the promised "sauces" arrived later in bottles dumped on the table!!! Again the discussion about chips!!!! But the fish and meat were excellent and the local wine good enough.

“sweet café in idyllic athmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2014

The sweet little café is located in a quiet corner of the wonderful beach Praia Das Maçãs, absolutely worth a visit when you are on a day trip to the surroundings of Lisbon. It's a charming place with delicious home made cakes. Not only in high season a place to relax, watch the ocean and feel good.

“Worth the drive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

Take the drive up the coast from Lisbon to Praia das Macas.....we stumbled across this restaurant and gorgeous beach last week.....genuine Portuguese seafood, well prepared......great place for lunch....As well as fantastic fish our 12 year old son had the steak and chips which he ate with relish.

Really good value for money and you know you have found the right place when the restaurant fills up with locals who clearly enjoy their food!!!

Spent the afternoon on the beach....a memorable day
