Very nice food, we ate Feijoada de Búzios and Polvo com Batata Doce, in a very informal setting and with an excellent view over the sea and a nice sunset. If you have a starter, the portions are good enough for 2 people although the waiter said they were individual. The desserts were massive also and delicious. Very good price-quality... More

Went back after 25 years to what used to be a fisherman's shack. Still simply delicious and very affordable. This is not a tourist place and you get the best sunset ever

We had a very pleasent dinner at O Sacas. Set in an incredible old fisherman village, the restaurant still offers autentic dishes. We had the fried calamari and sole, both deliciuos!

Located in front of the Atlantic Ocean, this small business keeps providing good choices of fresh sea food to its customers and friends. I have been tasting some of the dishes for the last 20 years and occasionally I keep coming back for more if I'm nearby and facing sea food. Fantastic "moreia frita" as a starter and grill sea...

Simple, reliable, restaurant where you can enjoy the freshest fish and percebes. Situated a 5 minute drive outside Zambujeira do Mar, this restaurant has been owned for years by a fisherman and used to be a shack, where you could eat grilled fish freshly caught in the adjoining little harbour, Entrada da Barca. With several tables outside and in a... More

Went in 2 occasions ( I wanted to give them another chance ) and the food was heavily salted and some was not clearly freshly prepared. You can have much better in the area and it is a shame considering their location just above the Porto do Barco.

A lovely view. The service is sometimes slow but besides that you get fantastic products, cooked "au point" for cheap prices. Try grilled or fried fish dishes, perceves, ameijoa, the bean stews

Food is at its freshest, directly from the fishermen down the harbour, you may even see them bringing it into the restaurant. The setting is great, a perfect place to see the sunset in the evenings. The food is great and it is generally very busy so advisable to book.
