Awesome restaurant that combines the best sea fruits and also some very good meat. The starters are amazing and all is fresh and super tasty. To repeat and repeat and repeat. My First option every time I flight to Lisbon or south of Portugal.

Good food. Nice selection of sea food. Unspectacular location and service. Overall perhaps somewhat overpriced.

Very nice place. Our big company visited "Celmar" several times and we were always pleased. Stuff members speak english well, and there was no problem to make order. Prices are average. Hospitality is very high. If owner has been there he always asked visitors if everything is alright and if they need any advice or recommendation. Seafood is always fresh,... More

This is probably the best restaurant in town. Ive tried them all! Here you get 2 things that usually you don't get around. Almost every restaurant around delivers good food, specially fish and sea food. In Celmar, apart from that, you also get amazing boar, wild pigeon, partridge and hare! All amazingly fresh and cooked with sophistication. As well as... More

Celmar is a small restaurant in the heart of the Meco village. My family and I go there every year in Summer in order to have their Arroz de Marisco (Seafood Rice). I can guarantee it is probably one of the best I have ever had. You have the option of having it with lobster or not (35 for 2... More

We had dinner twice at "Celmar" restaurant during our holiday in Portugal, and both times the food was very good. They offer a really great selection of any kind of seafood, and you can chose whatever you want after having a look at the different dishes they offer. One night the service was very professional, the other night it was... More

Nothing special but this is the best in Meco. Decent Portuguese food friendly service. I little more expensive than the the quality of the restaurant would justify but it's closeness to the beach adds a few euro to the bill.

A simple restaurant but with an amazing choice of fresh fish and seafood. And the price is acceptable and the service is excellent.

Very very good seafood and fish! Maybe crowded in July and august, but still worth a try, as the service is also very nice.

Everytime we return to Portugal we make a mandatory dinner(s) at Celmar. For many years we have been returning and we are always amazed with the constant quality of food and service. The owner and his wife are very good patrons and the fish and seadfood is absolutely superb. Oysters are a must in our meals. I can't comment about... More
