Typical Portuguese restaurant with excellent food. This restaurant is located in the capital of polvo (octopus). You should be patient if you have to queue, but it's worth it.

We walked the entire "strip" by the shore - chose Casa do Polvo because it looked good. We were delighted - shared the almeijoas appetizer, then polvo grilled and polvo in the oven. Everything was delectable.Don't miss it.

We know this restaurant since 2013. We have visited this restaurant 3 times by now. Be aware that this restaurant is side-by-side with another restaurant "Polvo e Companhia" and they share the same wall that divide both. It's very easy to miss the one we talking about. The decoration and ambiance are very good. you can opt to eat outside... More

The down side of our experience 1) the service was slow and rather uninspiring to start with albeit it did Improve 2) the olives and bread were also poor by our previous Portuguese experiences 3) other customers were seen to complain and return food, which made us apprehensive The up sides 1) the simple mixed salad was very fresh and...

We went on a Monday lunch time and were lucky to get a table straight away. We ordered stewed octopus with Sweet Potato and Baked Octopus with Garlic. The dishes took a while to come but were worth the wait. Absolutely delicious and the best Octopus we have had! Good value and amazing food. Get there early!

I highly recommend a visit to Casa do Polvo in St. Luzia. It is a very good restaurant, with excellent service and great food. We tried the fabulous Acorda de Polvo and we have agreed we need to go back to try many other great looking dishes :-).

All the food was excellent and very tasty. It might be difficult to to choose which to order for first timers, so I would suggest to go there with someone who knew the... More

Husband had clams/spaghetti, I had garlic / spicy prawns and mixed salad. Busy (seemed with lots of French - they know good food!) so tasty and fresh didn't want it to end - even husband who's not keen on large doses of garlic - commented how good even the garlic was - not overpowering😳 Bit of a drive out for...
