We had a really spectacular meal. Fresh Sole and vegetables. And not to mention the desserts, really out of this world. Poached pear filled with chocolate and vanilla bean ice cream.

Right from the start where WE were welcomed with genuine enthusiasm this is an excellent restaurant! We had the razor clams to start between us which whilst steeped in garlic were delicious! For main we had the fish stew which contained 4 types of fish, potato and tomato. There was so much and it was so tasty we didn't really need the starter.
With a little room left we went for pudding. I had a poached pear injected with chocolate and my wife had strawberries with basil mousse. Both were really good! We also had two bottles of wine and the total bill was a very reasonable €85. Definitely recommend however please note that they do not take cards - cash only!

What else can you wish form a restaurant?
Very good Portuguese food, with a twist of new ideas and new ingredients.
I've been there twice, and all the food we had was well prepared, tasty and very well presented.
Kind of different form the typical restaurants in Sesimbra.

And the service is the best you can get!
Don't miss this one.

We went here twice during our time in sesimbra - something that never happens as I want to try as many local places as possible. The food was great as was the ambience and service - relaxed but professional, always felt very looked after. The fishermans stew is good but huge - go hungry.
