My husband and I found no better fish anywhere in Portugal. They only serve fish that has been caught fresh that day. The portions are extremely generous. We enjoyed freshly grilled tuna steaks that could not be better. The side dishes were also great. They do not open until 7pm for dinner. Superior experience.

Adviced by a colleague as the best restaurant in Portugal. Firstly I thought would be one of the usual tips from a local, but once sit I felt the simplicity of the service and the food. You can chose the fish (subject to availability) and what side dish you want with, the simple atmosphere of the place is really outstanding... More

The restaurant has an unusual system where they keep the fresh fish of the day on ice at the edge of the dining room and you choose which one you want to eat with the chef. The grill is just behind where the chef cooks the fish. Sides are a standard set, and they don't even ask about those. One... More

I had to wait a little longer than they first told me for a takeaway meal and was given an appetizer ! Excellent tuna and well worth the wait ! They even gave us... More

We had a big fish for 4 and was one of the best grilled fish I have ever eaten. Cooked to perfection and without any fish-bone. The cooker (sr. Joaquim) knows fish from inside out.

I went there with my family for dinner and we were greeted immediately by the staff that asked us to have a look at the fish even before sitting down. The fish is very fresh and the one you pick is the one you eat! Can't get better than that! The fish was cooked beautifully and was very tasty. The... More

Very simple place but what an experience: nothing but the best, super fresh fish, expertly trimmed and grilled by the owner himself, Mr. Joaquim. The choices of entrées and accompaniments are indeed limited but everything is equally fresh and delicious. And don’t skip on the homemade desserts… Lastly, the prices are very reasonable. Great place indeed!

After a small chat the owner selected a super fresh and tasty fish. Excellently grilled and even boned by himself. Nothing to add. It was just great.

My mother is from the Algarve and my father cooks fish flawlessly. I begin with these credentials just to note I am used to eating really good fish at home. Me and my wife were recommended this restaurant along with the advice to let the owner pick the fish for you. I am glad i followed them as it was... More
