“Simply the best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

We were recommended - we were not disappointed - we had a starter of clams - fabulous - we shared the monkfish catalpana - sensational, We have never eaten such beautifully cooked monkfish it is a must if you eat here - and you really really should. Lovely traditional Portuguese restaurant with great service and excellent team of lady chefs in the kitchen, yummy.

“best seafood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

O Jacinto is a must when we are in the area. Seafood and fish is always really good. Try the green salad, so fresh as someone just picked it the moment you ordered.

“Squid and Garlic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

The squid was cooked in garlic, and was tender and amazing! The sea bass was above average. The service was attentive and fun! Cannot wait to go back!

“Good food and service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012 via mobile

We were recommended this restaurant by some locals when we asked for an authentic place to sample good fish. We were not disappointed. I had the monkfish cataplana, which they kindly did for one person - turns out it was huge, enough for the largest of appetites. And delicious. My wife had the sole, which she requested off the bone, which they gladly complied with. She said it was also good, although it didn't look as spectacular as my dish. I tried a good wine, which was not expensive. I would recommend this place.
