“A good surprise”
Review of Restaurante Portinho do Canal - CLOSED

If the locals go there you know it's a good choice!
They have fish and seafood (grilled, by the weight), but they also offer fish and seafood specialties, like seafood rice and cataplana. The food is delicious and authentic, with an amazing view over the sea.
They could revamp the place a little bit in terms of decoration, but this is far from being the touristy kind of place, so the kind of "shabby" look is actually part of fun here!

Came to Portinho do Canal, for the first time 6 years ago, and had one of the best meals I ever had, a delicious fish soup.

Had exactly the same on this visit and was really happy to discover that the food is still very good and the service staff very welcoming.

The fish soup for two is 20€, but consider that it's a very, very generous portion. We brought almost half of it home for dinner, so if you don't want to have your friends roll you down the hill, it's a main course for 5€.

The restaurant is just few steps below Porto do Barcas, which is more famous (I don't know why). However, I think Portinho is worth a visit, even if is less famous (and maybe this is the reason). The location of the restaurant is great, on the cliffs and from the terrace here we can have an amazing view. The menu is curated, the fish is fresh and we will be delighted by the kindness of the waitress and the calm of the place. I really love this place, because of its authenticity.
Try the octopus salad and a simple grilled fish: heaven.

Great seafood (we ate 'sapateira' and clams with a wooooonderful bread). Very well cooked and tasty.
Simple and humble place.
The view is just amazing. It worth a visit!!

It's a very simple, rustic space with a great view over the small harbour (Portinho do Canal) and the beaches towards Vila Nova Milfontes. The balcony (it's not an open space) has a smokers and a non-smokers area. Most of the dishes are to be shared (2 persons portions), individual portions are rare. We had the best "Raia d'Alhada" (fish ray) ever. It's closed on Thursdays and during winter time (more or less from early October till April).
