The restaurant offers a very varied menu. The food was first class as was the service. Well worth the visit.

Great place if you want to have seafood. The price is a little bit more expensive for the region/city patterns though. The service is ok. I had to wait a while for a table by the way.

Very good seafood cuisine! The restaurant is amazing. The food is very good and very different from the traditional seafood of the Santos restaurants that I have been. Here are some pictures of the food that I have ordered.

We had great seafood lunch in this restaurant in front of Santos beaches. Camarones where absolutely fantastic, fresh and well prepared, tasty and seasoned. A great plate. Other fishes where also very appetizing accompanied with local vegetables. The octopuss salad as starter was also great. Prices in consequence but worth trying it.

Led by Portuguese owner and chef Garcia from Coimbra, established in Santos for over 30 years, offering a marvelous menu of Portuguese dishes (hard to choose the cod fishes, all of them are fantastic) in a beautiful restaurant facing the sea, a delightful experience! and service is outstanding as well.

This is the place to go in Santos. In fact, it is worth just going to Santos to try the food. What is a must: start with the "casquinha de siri" (a crab cake), then get the "Abadejo com Amendoas": now this is the fish filé grilled and then covered with a almond crust which is then quickly baked. Fantastic.... More
