“The number One Fish Restaurant near Lisbon”
Review of A Transmontana

This is a fantastic traditional Portugese fish restaurant where Ana and her family are so welcoming. I spent 7 nights in Costa da Caparica and I ate a different fish here every night except one night. The reason for that was, Ana had no fish left and the fish market was closed on Monday due to a holiday so she closed the restaurant. This just tells you how dedicated she is to having the best quality fresh fish daily. It must be fresh on the day. The dishes are full of flavour and cooked with tons of love in the open Grill/BBQ. I had the most amazing sole, outstanding salmon, wow factor squid, sardines supreme and beautiful swordfish which I had not eaten before. Do remember to ask for her homemade coffee liquer after you've eaten her indeed her nata tart liquer. I miss the food so much and the wonderful welcome from Ana. It's only a short cab ride from Lisbon so get in a taxi now.. you will not be disappointed.

Food was amazing , the owner were very hospitable and welcoming. The place may not be considered posh or a top restaurant but the food and the service definatly 5 star quality. Came all the way from Egypt and the UK with friends from Poland and Germany to have this amazing meal and attend a festival.

Love from Egypt

We had dinner at A Transmontana and both the food and the experience were outstanding. We had grilled swordfish and dorado and they were cooked to perfection, along with yummy potatoes and garden salad, complimented by a carafe of house wine.

The owners were wonderful - fully engaged and very lighthearted and humorous. A great value meal at 30 euros for 2 people - cash only. A great experience and we will definitely return. We encourage you to support this family run restaurant!

I could say simply the best family restaurant in Costa da Caparica and around. If you are in Caparica and don't have at least a meal in A Transmontana you lose an important part of your holiday. Gorgeous fish and sea fruits meals at very good prices. Excellent services in a warm family atmosphere. And finally, as an advice, just tell to Ana, the grill master chef, what taste do you like and let her choose for your.
