Description: phone: Entrada da Barca; 283 961151. This is a fantasitc fish restaurant , at the top of the jetty they have fresh fish daily. Great seafood, Alentejo specialties, cakes and service, all the locals and fishermen hang out there. Indoor restaurant and patio tables. Superb

My fish tasted of bacon and swam in oil. The fattest dish I've ever eaten. Second dish-octopus- better but also fat. Wine not bad but nothing special for the region. Service not helpful, not nice, indifferent. Ambience not spectacular too. Seriously overpriced compared to other Zambuejira's restaurants and food quality doesn't justify that.

Great food, great location, but reasonable service.
It's a widely known restaurant, but maybe if the service was better (and faster) it would become fantastic.

We liked the food and dessert but the service was amateurish - they forgot the entreé, were unable to supply informations about the menu, and poor wine service. For €25 one can certainly find better offers

A small seafood restaurant/cafe just north of Zambujeira do Mar. We were fortunate to eat there three times (morning coffee/cake and two lunches)..
The restaurant is just above the jetty where fresh fish is landed daily. Much of it makes its way up to O Sacas, where the delightful young waitress sets the fish out in a beautiful display in the iced cabinet (accompanied by singing and dancing), Across in the pastry case are numerous delicious cakes and tarts.
Service seems to go on all day from mid morning, when the fisherman gather for the first beer of the day after work. There is attractive shaded seating out front and a cooler indoor seating area. This has a local restuarant feel but is sought out by tourists "in the know" with fishermens vans and Porsche 4x4s side by side in the car park.
Excellent, beautifully cooked fresh fish, Portuguese specialties, amazing golden chips (french fries) and well priced drinks - the fresh, crisp, chilled house white in carafes at Eu3.50 a half litre/Eu 5 per litre was my favourite wine the whole holiday (and we drank some fine bottles).
To finish off, the cakes were pretty special.
At night, great sunsets can be seen from the terrace.
A wonderful, family run feel to this welcoming restuarant with high quality cooking.
