“By the castle”
Reviewed February 8, 2014

very nice little restaurant close to the castle and the cathedral. Perfect service, good seafood and a perfect place to sit down for a lunch and a beer after the long climbing to the castle. despite that this is in the middle of the tourist stream most of the visitors were locals and the prices were reasonable.

“I disagree with the nice comments”
Reviewed January 5, 2014

After reading the nice comments on trip advisor, I decided to go to this very traditional restaurant.
Maybe is just me but there's a very characteristic smell inside the restaurant, the food is not fresh at all, it's cheap but I really can't recommend.

“Good food”
Reviewed January 5, 2014

A small, modest restaurant, with good food and good sangria, at a decent price!
We had the starter, cod fish meat loafs, a traditional soup and a sea shells soup ( that I loved ) and a mix fish plate for two, consisting of salmon, sea bass, sardinas and a squid. We also had potatoes with the fish, everything was delicious! We also had 1 liter of white sangria, an almond cake and 2 coffees and we paid 45 euros, including the tip.

“Lovely Seafood Rice!”
Reviewed November 27, 2013

The restaurant was decorated in a very local style! The food are mostly typical Portuguese which involves lots of seafood! Try the seafood rice especially! On top of it, don't forget the white house wine too ;)

“Pay attention to the bill! ”
Reviewed October 20, 2013 via mobile

The seafood rice that we ate was really nice, but later we got 26 euros bill instead of 19, 5. Every meal and drinks we took were charged with a higher price, plus we were asked to pay for a starter, which we didn't order - bread and cheese. Anyway, we said we not gonna pay the "extra" and the owner was acting like it was a mistake, which obviously wasn't the case.
