This restaurant was rated highly by a travel book. The place is seaside, by the fishing boats, and has old world charm. They serve a variety of fresh fish. We ordered the fish stew which was boney fish parts with potatoes, tomatoes and green pepper. This dish was large enough for 4 persons and very bland. It was full of... More

Your experience at this restaurant depends wether you go on or off peak. The only difference being the time you wait (and it can be a lot) to have your way. Pictoresque yet quality and really fresh tasting food is what you get here, for good valeu. Portions are big so you can easily split and save even more. Had... More

We were here for dinner once in August. We waited a while to sit and when we were to be sit, staff didn't respect the order of the queue we were in and people arriving after us were seated first. After we warned them about this, we were sit as well. The food took a long time to be served... More

We read the reviews here and the idea of a fisherman's shack with fresh fish was just too appealing to miss it. It is a fisherman's shack indeed, both by service and atmosphere, but the food, being decent and I believe fresh, was far from blowing us away. Which for the price tag should have. Another place in Portugal that... More

This was recommended by a Portuguese friend who told us the food was great and it was a popular spot. The food was great, but at 7pm we were the only ones there and the service was still slow!! Despite this we had a lovely time and ate as the sun set over the sea.

Got a recommendation from our Airbnb host to try this place and we were not disappointed one bit. Outdoor seating overlooking the ocean with the sun setting. We ordered the octopus to share for a starter and it was beautiful. We then ordered the monkfish to share and it was large enough for 4 people. Jaw dropping flavours. Stunning food... More

Very nice food, we ate Feijoada de Búzios and Polvo com Batata Doce, in a very informal setting and with an excellent view over the sea and a nice sunset. If you have a starter, the portions are good enough for 2 people although the waiter said they were individual. The desserts were massive also and delicious. Very good price-quality... More

Went back after 25 years to what used to be a fisherman's shack. Still simply delicious and very affordable. This is not a tourist place and you get the best sunset ever

Located in front of the Atlantic Ocean, this small business keeps providing good choices of fresh sea food to its customers and friends. I have been tasting some of the dishes for the last 20 years and occasionally I keep coming back for more if I'm nearby and facing sea food. Fantastic "moreia frita" as a starter and grill sea...
