Amazing meal... the best sea food restaurant in Ericeira. Small but really cozy. Just for small groups.

This seafood restaurant seems much smaller from outside than it really is. Even it was in low season, it was packed with locals and the food was lovely. I had prawns as a (huge) starter and a portion of clams cooked withs garlic and oil. Both was delicious, wine was good, the service was nice but the bill was rather... More

You want to taste the fresher seafood in Portugal? Then you need to come to Ericeira and have a go at this small restaurant. They are specialists in shellfish and there is no where were you will find fresher or tastier shellfish than here. A must

Cataplana and a mixed salad for lunch: superb. The seafood was excellent, fresh and perfectly prepared. Often the clams are overlooked when the shrimp are perfect. This was all perfect.

Great buzz, full of locals (always a good sign), attentive service without being intrusive. The food was absolutely delicious and I can't wait to go back to try the seafood rice. No real view of the sea, but don't worry, it'll still be there when you've finished eating.

We weren't sure where to go for lunch but we managed to find this little place overlooking the water. Really good place for extremely fresh seafood. Had clams, a lobster and some great wine. Loved it all.

Had perhaps a bit to high expectations to this restaurant, as all the reviews were so positive. Got very good prawns in garlic, but just ok clams and lobster. The lobster also took very long time before beeing served. It tasted ok, but they are a bit to shy with the seasoning for my taste. Also, the lobster cost 55... More

We had some big seashell stew for two. There were crabs, mussels, clams and prawns in sauce. We got it with rice. It was really tasty and price was good.
