“Great place!”
Reviewed January 10, 2014 via mobile

We were looking for crab and couldn't find it anywhere, so we chose this place since the reviews said they had very good seafood and we weren't disappointed. When we came in and asked for crab, they waiter said they were all out but said he will go get some at the market (which is very close so the seafood and fish is truly fresh). The crab was introduced to us first and then served very nicely accompanied with freshly toasted bread and sauce which turned out very tasty. We also had fish soup which was enough for both of us and we even had some left despite the wonderful taste. The waiters were very pleasant and helpful so we really enjoyed our lunch. Definitely worth a visit!

“Do not hesitate !”
Reviewed May 22, 2013

Do not hesitate to go to this restaurant if you want to eat perfeçtly fresh seafood served by a pleasant waiter. The boss is a french-speaker who do not hesitate to recommend you not the highest price but the best value for a bottle of wine. For 2 starters, 2 grilled octopusses, 1 bottle of wine, 2 coffees = 60€ ! 2 port glasses offered ! The place is very clean. You will feel at home with nice portgueuse people. Simplicity and friendship.

“Great seafood”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

We came here for a Saturday night meal and loved it. The staff took us to their baskets of fresh seafood and we just pointed to everything that we wanted. The food came out very quick, service was great and everything (crab, prawns, octupus, claims, mussels, bread and wine) tasted amazing! As read on TripAdvisor, soup was delicious. For everything, it cost about EUR60 each, including drinks.

Only suggestion is to book ahead (we booked a few hours beforehand), and get a cab there!
