Fabulous place for a fabulous seafood meal. We had Goose barnacle for lunch and this was a first for me. The look just did not appeal to me and I would not have ordered it if it was not for our friend's introduction to this delicacy. It was extremely tasty and yummy. The look is just a bit put-off. We... More

Looks like a place I'll never enter, but you should. Because the food is just great. For the starter a tuna paté, which you would never dreamed of... Comes nice with the Planalto dry white wine. And the fish as a main dish was just great. Catch of the day, fresh from the sea... The place was recommended to me... More

I was really looking forward to eating here as the reviews were good. We ordered the Seafood boat.....it was a huge disappointment...prawns tasted like rubber, the crab filling was over salted. At 99 euros was far too expensive for what you got! To add insult to injury they added 25 euro for the cold stale bread, tuna mayonaise, 4 pieces... More

One of the best seafood restaurants I have been, everything was great, food and service! The waiter couldn't do enough to make us feel welcome, was very attentive with my little girl, making sure she had her bread and plate, even that I didn't ask for it! Five stars... being a waitress my self I know that little things make... More

Our group of 8 ordered two seafood boats as higly recommended by the waiter. Could not have been more disappointed! A real shame that a restaurant classified as a 'seafood restaurant' serves frozen crab and rancid oysters. The day old bread is toasted and slathered with butter, but served COLD! Don't waste your time dining here.

Fish and seafood par excellence. Huge variety, well-prepared, great service and all at a reasonable price. Cataplena for 2 was delicious and almost too much. The cheery owner insisted we wear plastic bibs for this course - quite right. Fairly busy with lots of locals rather than tourists. Prices are fair considering the quality and quantity.

My wife had the Grouper, which she said was the best fish she ever had eaten. My fillet steak was also excellent. We observed a couple having the Seafood Boat and while they really enjoyed it, it took them about an hour and a half to eat it.

If you like seafood this is definitely the place for you. I recommend booking because it gets busy. The portions are generous, if your going for one of the boats don't get a starter. The food was amazingly delishous. Perfection. The service was great, friendly and fast. The restaurant is casual looking but it's great. I highly recommend going and... More

Arrived at This Restaurant without a Restaurant but got a table as it was quite early. The Seafood Boat for two is certainly worth having. With some lovely bread to mop up the juices you don t need a starter in my opinion . The King Prawns were some of the best I have ever tasted. We had the House-Wine... More
