We had no reservation and therefore could not eat there. However, the manner in which we were sent away was downright rude. I would never go back there again.

Sardines is all which is served there, but “all you can eat” style, they keep bringing more until you say stop. Very simple dish, served with boiled potatoes and a side of lettuce, onions, tomatoes and green peppers salad. Sardines are prepared Portuguese style, grilled...More

Super local little place with a big reputation, we waited an hour to get a seat for lunch and didn't regret it. From a table outside, there is a great view of the beach. The service was chaotic but charming and the food was spectacular....More

This is an amazing restaurant because: 1. It is only open for lunch 2. They have only one main course dish: grilled sardines 3. You can eat as many as you want (they refill your plates!) 4. The sardines are delicious 5. There's a sign in the restaurant that says (politely) "If you don't like the service, you don't have to stay'. 6. You can have the eat-all-you-can sardines meal for a mere 10 Euros. 7. It's located above the beach but with perfect beach and sea views.
