“Excellent location and food”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

We enjoyed a team dinner at this restaurant. The seafood was amazing and the wait staff was very experienced and professional. The decor was a little dated and worn considering the prices of the meals. Some prices were quite shocking but we were still able to enjoy some fine seafood. The steamed clams and king crab legs were my favorites. The stuffed spider crab was unique and also very tasty. This is definitely a special occasion place that will cost you more than $100 per person.

“Fish, at the water's edge”
Reviewed August 25, 2012

Freshly caught, grilled fish is their speciality; sangria is so delicious. Place is typically packed, because all of us want to linger here for a couple of hours. GREAT service.

“Expensive touristic trap”
Reviewed August 24, 2012

Nice decor,nice views and service OK but you really have the feeling ,as soon as you get into this place ,that you have stepped into the touristic trap of the area. No locals,very high prices for a quality of food that you can have in other charming restaurants in the neighborhood in paying half of this shameful bill. My advice : look for other places.

“Absolutely stunning ... and highly addictive !”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

Yesterday we went back to one of the sacred grounds of Portuguese cuisine. It is one the very best fish and seafood restaurant I know in Portugal and all over Europe. The catch is ultra fresh and superbly prepared. We had a seafood platter and sea bass in a bread crust. The cooking in a bread crust preserves all the juice of the fish. Coming together with an outstanding Esporao Reserva, it was simply divine. Perfect, kind service and a magnificent location on the beach side. However, it’s not a bargain, but worthwhile and ... highly addictive: We are coming back very regularly for more than fourteen years !

Ask for a table at the beach side. Children a very welcome, Portuguese families dine there all together. A reservation is necessary.
