All of the food was good! Worth the 20 minute wait for a table. The barnacles were surprising tasty and the seafood rice was sublime!

It is located in old Quarteira. The best way to get there if you dont know is to take a taxi as it is quite tricky to get there. Old Quarteira is a maze of narrow street but a taxi will take you there no problem!

It is very difficult to find online, but there is a Facebook Page, the owner owns it, he is called Fernando. If you look up Google by the restaurant name the Facebook page appears. Be aware that there are restaurants with similar or same names in other locationos.
