We had lunch only there. Grilled fish, fresh and nicely prepared. Restaurant offers a large variety of seafood and fishes. Staff was friendly and attentive, service quick.

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.

Just forget about the Praia da Rocha hype and come eat at a true good marisqueira. Now if you are into pizza and burgers you may want to travel to Italy or the US ;-)

It is such a pity that a nice restaurant at an excellent location in the center of Portimao old town, even with excellent food, can keep on with service under all, no service at all? Having a simple dinner of two persons, that was probably the problem why we got no attention at all after the restaurant started to be... More

This restaurant is located in the centre of Portimão and far from the typical spots where the turists go to eat fish in this city. At the first look, I thought it would be a regular portuguese restaurant however the food exceeded all the expectations. Everybody in my group ordered different meals but all of us were blown away with... More
