“Autentic and delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2012

Going to Setubal or the area and not having eaten there is a no go. Although the restaurant is not located at or close to famous Avenida Luise Todi, it was quite busy on a normal Wed. evening. Looks like it is run by family, they help you choosing from their wide selection of main courses and starters. There is significant risk to order too many dishes simply due to their wide selection - happened to us but we managed. Surely among the top 3 in Setubal...

“The very Best of the Sea”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2011

When in Setubal, one of the very capitals of fish in Portugal, it's the only good place that we did found. Very efficient and quality. Just asked to cook the fish less long, as we prefer it.
The country to our tastes is over cooking the beauty they have. Year after year we return there for our pleasure and are never disapointed.

“Il pozzo dei desideri”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2011

Pleasure island amid awful surroundings (railroad in front and crapy buildings aside). Here prawns ( shrimps) are so big looks like to be doped!!!!!  You can choose what you want from the fish desk and also ask the way you prefer to be cooked.......we advice to exploit the grill they have outside !!!!! Wherever you sit in a portughese restaurant you find at the table a variety of appetizers here they were by far the best we had; fresh goat cheese, salad with fish and vegetables, a fantastic ham, a spicy sheep cheese, sardinias salad.....

“Best fish in Setúbal and by far not the most expensive”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2011

This is the place to taste the real fresh fish of the Setúbal area.

I've been coming back to this restaurant for years, and I never get disappointed. You have a vast variety of fish, meat and seafood to choose from, and with the guarantee that all of them are fresh, or they won't serve it to you.
