Great seafood, great service, and great wines, right in the heart of Viana's fishing port, guaranteeing the quality of its fish dishes. Just a lovely place to kick back and enjoy local cuisine.

This was my first time eating here but my husband loves this restaurant and dines here any time he travels to this area. I now know why, the food is amazingly fresh and delicious! We had what Linda recommended, which for tonight was octopus to start followed by our entree of sea bass. Even the desserts were great and homemade!... More

Restaurant with some great fish dishes! Has an assortment of shellfish and seabass. The owner, Linda, served the seabass to us. Small restaurant, but airy. Would recommend.

The rest of our group ordered a massive Seafood Platter which had more than they could possibly eat and some of it really was much to difficult to bother with (peeling the shrimp, etc). The staff was... More

Both soups were amazing as well as the appetizers. Highly recommend the house red (vinha da urze); you cannot go wrong with Douro wine. Go with the fresh grilled fish!

It is a small restaurant on the dock, just in front of a fishing harbor. In this restaurant there is no meat; only excellent fish and seafood/shellfish. The fish is served as grilled (several different high quality types of fish are available) and cooked in three traditional fish dishes: "massada de peixe" (pasta with an assortment of fishes), "arroz de...

The restaurant is small but the tables are good and we are comfortable. The maids are friendly, professional, available and know how to advise clients well. The restaurant's specialties are seafood and fish. Our dinner had wonderful, big and succulent clams, an extraordinary grilled fish for 2 people, called "solhão" who is from the family of "pregado". For dessert, we... More
