We had a fabulous meal at this restaurant last night. It's a traditional Portuguese fish restaurant which is very popular, so be sure to book in advance! Wonderful decor and super friendly service. We had razor clams and then sea food rice accompanied by a lovely bottle of wine recommended by the waiter. This is a great value restaurant and... More

I visited this restaurant last night with friends. We had clams, Sapateira, prawns, and oysters. Everything was delicious, especially the prawns. Try the Alfarroba, fig, and almond cake. The waiters were nice. They even let me try a bite of the cake before I ordered it. We were also able to get a table quickly, which is surprising for a... More

I have eaten here on numerous occasions, it's probably my favourite fish restaurant, the monkfish rice, the clams, the fresh grilled fish,the crab and the spaghetti with prawns, hot buttered toast, and finish with the sweet rice, very attentive staff, I just love it, xxx

We were staying with my sister in Portimao for a couple of days last week, and we found and choose that restaurant because of their widnow display of fresh fish, live langustas and crabs. First time I was there, I choose prawns, witch was the best prawns of my life! :) We return to Marisqueira the next day, for my... More

We`ve been several times this year and we are back again for 3 weeks over Christmas and New Year. So I guess we`ve been to Marisqueira 5 times in the last month. We have only ever eaten fish here. Last night we shared the Cataplana. Superb. We had 4 glasses of wine between us (plus their usual welcome drink of... More

Four of us went for lunch. Small restaurant in the center of town with charming blue tiled walls and friendly and patient waiter that helped me pick the best fresh fish for me. The fish flavors were amazing and the octopus was so tender! All in our party were very happy and recommend it to anyone wanting quality seafood in... More

This is a nice full season restaurant where you will pay what you get. Although we had to wait more than 30m for the meal, everything was pretty nice... not the best... The staff was also very pleasant and professional. If you´re tired of the many experimentalist half season restaurants at praia da rocha, Marisqueira Carvi will hardly disappoint you.
