The restaurant is at the old side but it was renovated. It also as a nice esplanade. We had clams "a bulhao pato" with olive oil, garlic, coriander and lemon for starters and Portuguese fish stew as main dish. Great food, generous portion. Friendly staff. To go again.

We visited this restaurant in March during a rainy day and in full preparations for the Carnival. The interior decor is pleasant and all in shades of white. The exterior very nice and facing a quiet back street. The variety of fish is huge and the grilled sea bass was superb. Very economical prices

We came mid afternoon and the line-up was about 1 hour. After being seated we were served quite quickly.

The experience in 'A sardinha' exceeded our expectations - the service was fast, friendly and extremely efficient, even with the restaurant being at its peak occupation. The food was delicious, especially the fish, which was perfectly grilled and served with cabbage and potatoes. We will surely return!

We liked everything. From the friendly service to the excellent food served! All local flavours, specially the fish soup, seafood cream soup, Caldeirada, to the desserts. Not all local restaurants work like this one! Recommended!
