As you walk in, you choose your fish in the entrance from a large display in crushed ice. The restaurant itself is simple (with a jaunty nautical touch to it) and has a stunning view on to the Atlantic. We were offered various nibbles and plumped for the fish pate (not the usual sardine paste) which was very more-ish. The other options of cheese and shrimps also looked great.
The meal itself was excellent - the dorado was unsurpassably good. My two youngest, being wary of any fish, went for the beef steak - OK, but nothing special (kept them happy, anyway).
Side dishes very respectable. Service friendly. Wine good.
In summary, the fish was just amazing. Amaaaaaazing. The rest of the food good.

"Furnas" is one of my favourite fish restaurants in Portugal. It is not cheap, and there are less expensive restaurants nearby, but quite honnestly, you cannot compare the freshness of the fish and the way it is grilled to perfection.
Ant then you have the location, literally over the sea. It is good to sit there any time during the year, but when there is a storm and the waves are really big, it is just amamzing.
The terrace is well protected from the wind; so much so that I had lunch outside last sunday (oct. 28).
Good friendly service, starting at the door, when you are asked to choose the fish you want. If you don't know much about fish, the staff will guide you, and then just sit, enjoy and wait for divine fish to come...

Many people mention the views, sure, but you can see those views from anywhere in and around Ericeira. The food was simply fabulous and the service was so professional that we actually started to feel uncomfortable for being underdressed.
We simply said "yes" to everything so even though we were planning a 50 EUR spend, it climbed to 100 for a dinner for two.
I am rating 4 out of 5 just because there are many other places in Ericeira that are cheaper.

The food is good spatially fish and sea food, meat is not very present at the menu.
The decoration is nice, but the best of all, is the location of the restaurant (almost over the sea).
On summer, just ask for a table outside.
The presence of kids seems to be not very encouraged by the owners.
The service is ok.

The food is ok, over priced grilled fish with some potatoes and a simple sallad. The view is what makes this restaurant worth a visit though.
