The O Charco is a bad value for money choice located in the shopping Street. Food quality is below average, prices way above. We wanted to try fresh fish and got a plate of „fresh from the freezer“ gambas at exaggerated prices. The other dish...More

We visited this restaurant after coming out late and not being able to get in where we wanted to go. The food was great and we visited at 10pm. So if you are looking for anywhere with late food service, come here.

The waiter was quite rude and seemed to not be paying any attention when we were taking to him. Food was average at best. The bread was stale, the boiled eggs in the salad were green and there was barely any vegetables/greens in the salad....More

Some reviewers were less than positive, but we visited outside of the peak summer months so it wasn't too busy for us. The local monkfish dish was very tasty and it was plenty for the two of us. Above average for us.

Had a great launch. Good and not so expensive place. If you want to try sea food, this is the place where to come.
