Beware, adress on TripAdvisor is not the correct one. Adress must be naar the coast. Rua herois de macaba is the wrong adress. Just Google on Olhinhos and find the right adress.

A Nice small restaurant with the best octopus in town. And the best rice of all times. Sadly they didn't have sparkling water.... Must visit and reserve before.

If you go there it's for octopus! It is the best octopus rice I have ever eaten! Small room but great kitchen! :) And it's near the beach.

Don't miss the octopus filets with the amazing octopus rice. The price is fixed, 12,5€ each and get a small couvert, drink, main course, deserts and coffee. Worth it.

This was my second time in Olhinhos do Polvo. It's really quite hard to fault and it's ridiculously cheap. The best about this simple little place only a stone's throw from the beach? It's homely, both because of the family who run it, the predominantly...More
