Make sure you reserve a table as they only have a few. This is a true gem! Excellent dishes and the price 'is right'. Absolutely worth going.

The service was very bad I don't recommend it to anyone. No flexibility to arrange a new chair, started asking why the client arrived late 25min. Hostile​ ambiance!

This little but very good restaurant is situted in a narrow street among the Art Nouveau houses in the centre of Aveiro, besides the central channel. All clad in wood, it resembles the interior of an ancient ship, cleverly run by its sympathetic owner. Here the fish, always fresh, is the king. I do enjoy it simply grilled and I... More

To find the restaurant is not too difficult but it is in a very narrow side street. But, well worth any effort. The food is fresh and mainly fish and is prepared in such a way your taste buds will say "thank you" The restaurant is not a large place so, it is absolutely necessary to book in advance. It...

Weird night. Okay, mom and I sat down for dinner. I went to order fish soup and cheese to compliment her filet mignon, and the dude objects and says, "Sir, this is a restaurant and we do not serve ONLY appetizers". He agrees to let us pass since she ordered an entre and a bottle of Chard. We sat waiting... More

Travelled with my friends and waited for over 2 hours...literally 2hours for plates and cutleries and another 20 minutes for the actual meals. I understand its a little place and the atmosphere is relaxed but still... no apologies nor anything. The dishes looked nice on the outside HOWEVER the food tasted extremely salty that my tongue started hurting. After the... More

Seafood specialists inside a boat, in one of the narrowest streets in Aveiro. Great seafood rice and portuguese style clams. Not cheap, but fair. Reservation recommended, it is a small place. Very warm service.

I was surprised, it was in a narrow road, no signs pointing to it . But it was a good, very good visit ! Deco is related with boats, like the inside of a boat, wall in wood , slide doors, small and cosy . The list was great , we tried the fish soup and the Bacalhau com Broa... More
