The best shellfish I've ever had!!! Both in quantity and in quality! If you come to Figueira da Foz, don't look elsewhere. But do book first. The employees and the owner are very pleasant. I'll never forget this place...and will be back for sure!
Another thing....his is not the correct name of the restaurant, it's better known as "Rosa Amélia" but is mistaken as the tennis club restaurant.

In mid july (!) we found Figueira Da Foz kind of closed down - could not recognize the description of a lively and cosmopolitan town. Maybee the cosmopolitan-thing is a local joke? On the other hand, today I did notice a Belgian registration plate and the guy in our hotel reception appears to have a brother in Copenhagen. If I understood him rigth, that is. Maybee it used to be? Maybee its hey-days are over?
If you - for some reason - find yourself in Figueira you will probably have a hard time finding a decent restaurant (which does not make Figueira different from the rest of this beautiful (!) country).
However, at tennis club they are alive and kicking - it's a nice and popular restaurant.
Their sea platter seem to be the big thing - and I kind of understand why.
Lots of fresh shell fish and local stuff no one knew the english word for ("percebes").
But thats it. Really.

Thank Jens D

This is a restaurant that's part of the Tennis Club that provides tennis lessons in the day and early evening.
It's always busy and is best to book in advance or be prepared to wait or go for a drink somewhere whilst waiting for you table!
Last time we went we got the special seafood platter that they had on offer, basically lots of different types of seafood and shellfish including prawns, crab and clams for €18 per person. You can eat as much as you like and they'll keep bringing more for you or you can order extra of something specific that you like. See the picture i have posted to get a better idea!! I ordered the steak, a bit like picanha which came with flat chips, rice and salad and was very tasty. You can choose which sauce you would like with it and it was about €14, a huge meal!
This place has a great atmosphere and is always busy with locals, be prepared to eat early or very late if you haven't pre-booked!!
It's a must for fresh seafood, traditional Portuguese food and a great experience!!
