“Pleasant surprise!”
Reviewed May 6, 2014

I went to this restaurant for the first time in a bright sunshine day, the view is gorgeous if you get lucky to get a table outside!
The starter was some bread and three butters ( tuna, olive and regular)
Than we had an amuse bouche from the chef, always a kind welcome.
We than ordered some scallops that were cooked to the point, well presented and delicious.
The main course was a ribeye stake, that was tender and tasty and cooked to the point , the fried potatoes with a delicious sauce and a fresh salad, outstanding! Another main course we tried was a octopus dish with mushrooms that was tender and also very tasty.
The recommended wine taken was good and not expensive.
The desserts, a tiramisu and a pear cooked in wine with ice cream and crumble, were good but not at the same level of the previous courses.
A meal to remember and repeat.
Some side observations, the crew in charge of the tables is very young and inexperienced but willing to please but still causing some unnecessary delays. The Restaurante has a private parking and is over the sea with a gorgeous view.
Also is the unique place in Setubal were you can eat different from usual grilled fish with a superb view!

“Setúbal needed it!”
Reviewed December 9, 2013

This is a new restaurant and already it has massive reputation and I'm quite sure it deserves it!
I believe, and the vast majority of people will most likely agreed with me, that this is completely unique and new concept in Setúbal, no other restaurant has this type of combination of different flavors, at this price and with this quality.
It has one of the nicest views in the whole city, the service is really good considering they've been open for less than 5 months, so is the value for he meal and quality of the food you're getting.
I'll definitely be coming back, specially since they now have new Christmas menus that are absolutely delicious! If I'm able to, I'd love to be there for the new years' eve party, I believe the Theme will be Woodstock, and it is bound to be awesome!
Cheers guys and Congratulations!

“Good View, Excelent Food...”
Reviewed November 16, 2013

The very first impression... Great view!!!!
Have a good meal with Troia and Sado river in front of you. The best for stress...

This is not the Setubal's "traditional" fish restaurant... but if you for a stake or some other italian food like Pasta or Pizza, you must try this restaurant. I had a stake and I only have good things to say about the food experience.
