The food is nice but the waitresses look like they don't care about the customer. The service is underwhelming and slow. It is also quite expensive.

This place was recommended to us by the hotel manager. It is slightly away from the main square, but worth the nice walk through the streets. It is slightly pricier than many other restaurants in town (average 1-3 EUR on each item) but the quality is worth the extra money. We had dorada and sword fish and is was plentiful... More

This is supposed to be a locals' restaurant, but on the evening we came to dine there were all but locals. Nevertheless it is a good place to eat. Not fantastic, not the best you've been to, but good (and not too fancy either). Dine, by all means, and then walk to Praça da República...

We booked a table to eat relatively early (large party with kids) and thoroughly enjoyed the food, the restaurant's atmosphere and the excellent service. The mixed plate of fish to share was fantastic! By the time we had finished there were people waiting out on the street for tables to be vacated.

We have been to this restaurant several times, the last one with a couple of guests, and we have always experimented a great pleasure with their food. Fresh, great quality fish and seafood, mainly as its name tells, and an awesome way to prepare it. We recommend "arroz tamboril" (rice with monkfish, delicious) "arroz de marisco" (seafood rice, with lobster,... More

Yesterday we have eaten here. What a shame.......the restaurant was not full (15 pax) however de staff was fully equiped (4 cooks and 3 waitresses). The main course - monkfish with rice 27.90 euros for two persons - took a while. And when it arrived.... a big bowl with thick rice soup and the amount of fish was very disappointing.... More

Had a very nice mixed platter of grilled fish, mostly appeared to be local species. Plenty of food for two at Euro 32,50. Can only recommend this place if you are looking for good fish.

Excellent fish dishes, good wine, good service. A little more expensive than some places we went to but totally worth it. You can see the chef and his team busily working away in the kitchen in the back.
