The best about this establishment is the terrace - you get the message. Mentioned in the guide Michelin, we went for lunch and were the only guests (which makes me feel VERY uncomfortable). Stayed however, because of tired legs, urge to go somewhere and a decent terrace with a direct view to the pier where big ocean liners spit out land-goers en masse.
The food was ok while the service was a bit shaky - set-off by the nice smile and good looks of the waitress from Brazil. Asking why there are no guests, the answer was that the place is full in the evenings (terrace). And now I cannot find the shrugging shoulders emoticon. We had:
2 couverts 7.50 / 1 risotto 22.50 / 1 magret de pato 19.50 / 2 copo alentejo branca 6.- / 2 fruta 6.-
1 water 5.- There is nothing wrong with the place and would probably go again if I am in the vicinity for a simple lunch on the terrace.

The service was very good and the food was of a high standard. The view from the restaurant overlooking the estuary was very pleasant although there are only a few tables which could enjoy the view.

We made a reservation for 13, showed up on time at 8:00 PM, had apertifs and ordered our main courses by 8:30 PM. Almost an hour and a half later (9:55 to be precise) we had not been served, except for ongoing bottles of wine. When I threatened that the party would walk out at 10:00 PM the food began to arrive. There was no apology, no explanation, just a statement that "you are a large party". Definitely do not plan to go there. Unacceptable, for our wedding anniversary.

Went here for lunch after going to the tile museum. Lovely views, good food, mediocre service. The house wine is good and not too expensive. Our pork was really good. Definitely worth a lunch.

Arrived to find no record of a confirmed in writing online reservation. Next, when ordering, a numbers of things on the menu were unavailable. I chose an appetizer which came missing key ingredients and when this was pointed out the response was a shrug. Main course was fine but the bill came with coffees and such which were not ordered or consumed. View is good. Wouldn't recommend and wouldn't go back.
