Went there on a Friday evening. It was fully booked. Be sure to reserve a table. Maybe I'm getting old but this time I had the feeling that it was much too loud inside. Even the owner went through the restaurant shouting to the people in the kitchen. So be sure to book the table in the smaller room that... More

Nice authentic family held fish restaurant. Price quite affordable, menu in english, franch, german. At least one person speaks English. We come quite early, at 8, and witnessed that it is queue to get a table here if you arrive later. Recommended.

Been through the whole menu at least twice. If you've never been go. If you've been before go again. Portuguese steak is divine but ask for an egg with it. (Com ova).

Popular restaurant with very good unsophisticated food. We had “arroz de marisco” … and some small thins in the half a hour before…It was fresh, full of shrimps and other seafood stuff, and incredible big (one portion was good for 4 people).

This must rate as one of the worst meals we have ever had, in Portugal and elsewhere. The starters were fine ---- small freshly cooked shrimp and bacalau rissoles. Then came the mains which were the speciality of the house. Grilled octopus and calamari with prawns. Accompanied by soggy potatoes and a mountain of soggy greens, carrots and sprouts! Cremated...

On the recommendation of taxi driver Joao we had lunch in this fabulous restaurant. A true gem of a restaurant serving the most delicious fish dishes accompanied by good Portuguese wines. Prices were very very reasonable and the service was really good.

I've been eating there for lunch. Olives and mussels as appetizers, good house wine. Main course we did choose a great mix of fish, grilled, with a big side dish of potatoes and veggies. The portion was that abundant, that we, despite of the excellent quality and taste, could just eat maybe half of it. The waiter offered we to... More

Been there in january at a pretty cold day. We took a cab to the village and immediately saw the grill standing there outside and they were firing up the charcoal. We had a great fish meal and we enjoyed the kindness of the staff.
