“Very disappointing”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2012

We went to Adraga for dinner on the advice of a local to celebrate a friends birthday. My first impression of it was "very basic decor" and extremely loud. There were five adults and three children. The adults ordered the fish which was very expensive and simply came out on a platter with soggy boiled skinless potatoes and a bit of lettuce and tomato. By the time the waitress had served us all, the fish was cold. The childrens steaks and lamb cutlets were inedible. The service was appalling and their ability to speak english extremely poor. Overall the worst restaurant we visited during our two week holiday.

“Excellent for fresh fish”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2012

Fresh fish, very well done, at a reasonable price. The seafood is also very good, and you can chose it still alive. One of the best wine list of this kind of small and not very expensive restaurants in this area. In summer or weekends, you should arrive early or make a reservation.

“Best fish restaurant in whole Sierra de Sintra!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2012

I definitely don't have enough words to describe the supreme Praia da Adraga where this fabolous restaurant is directly located ...
The fish is always fresh and I probably ate the best Bacalhau in whole Portugal as well as the famous Sardinas and a tasty Madeira Sword Fish!!!
Also sweets are home made and really but really worth a try.
It's also romantic to dine at sunset cause the view around Praia da Adraga is probably too beautiful to be put into words.

“A great spot for a Summer lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2012

Very simple place with a nice and attentive service. The must is the setting on the Adraga beach and its view to the Atlantic Ocean. Great fish and seafood real daily catch. A must for locals but already being beaten by tourists. Go early for lunch as it tends to be full.
