Description: OSTRADOMUS is only the new name for the same restaurant,A CHAMPANHERIA. We were forced to change the name of the restaurant in spite of having it registred and authorized by the portuguese authorities during 14 years. We are the same owners and the restaurant kept its tradition. We are now concerned, not only with the Setubal Oysters, but also defending a sustentable cuisine, using mainly local products. Visit us !

The place is small but easy to find, seating right by a big restaurant the avenue. The service is really good. We were serviced by a "baianinha" (a young girl from the state of Bahia, Brazil), very shy but a great waitress that informed us about what we were about to eat! We chosen the manu with 4 entrées and a main dish... I wished I had asked for the 8 entrées menu but it would be too much... Everything was delicious and elegant! Really exquisite and tasteful dishes. I would like to go back there, for certain, and explore other dishes/options. And I don't say this about every restaurant!

Fantastic food . It is local with some brasilian Taste ( family run : Mario and his wie from Brasil).
Plenty of sea food , local oysters ( fresh and baked) , fish. Perfect hospitality.
Local wines and "bubbles" .

Restaurant is set in the centre of Setubal , city which is "must" when you are in the Lisabonn area.
Local seafood market or beautiful beaches of Troya are main tops. After that Champanheria is best choice.

Cheers

After a week in Portugal we were looking for something different. We had had excellent food and great service and we definitely had had more than one glass of bubbly. However, we hadn't had all in one. The champanheria has it all. When we got there for lunch on Sunday we immediately felt welcome, the owners were very attentive. The Champanheria offers a set of surprise entradas (you can only tell them what you don't like to eat) and a main course that you can choose. We had the mocequa com camarões which was delicious; as a dessert we chose the coconut ice which was again delicious. And a whole bottle of local sparkling wine for 10 euros. Besides champagne, their speciality are oysters and even if I am normally not a big fan, I liked the gratinated oysters that came as a starter. So don't miss this when you are in Setubal!

This is a very good restaurant. I come here a lot, and every time it is great, even when they are busy ! It is different from all the other restaurants in the city, not traditional Portuguese food, and that is what makes it so good !
