From the outside it looks amazing and the amount of customers inside took me and me girlfriend to give it a try. Although, it is really not what it looks like...first of all there are some amateur waitress and it seems like we have lucky to have one of them on our table service, we order some red wine and...

5 of us visited this restaurant today and every person found their food spectacular. We tried octopus, sepia, and monkfish kabobs. Everything was fresh flavorful and cooked to perfection. The bolo de bolacha for dessert was terrific. The orange tart was a little drier than we usually have but wonderful taste. All in all one of the best meals at... More

He went there for dinner, cosy place, with 3/4 tables with view to Main Street. The food was average, we had the fish noodles, not great, not bad, regular. In the same street you can find better places.

Nice and clean place. Fish is fresh, quick service. Value for money. One of the recommended places in Peniche.

I think Popular might serve better as a seafood restaurant. We ordered bife de chefe. The meat was of low quality. Also the tiramisu was served from the plastic cup that it comes in when you take one home from the supermarket. It had been refrozen so that makes me skeptical about their cold chain.

There are at least two/three good dining options in Peniche but we decided to give to try Restaurants Popular. We got there at an ideal time as it was getting busier by the minute. We had the mixed fish skewers and they were incredibly tasty. All the fish is fresh and service is friendly and fast. Great choice!

Went for dinner with my family including my 10 month old daughter. We had a large sea bass to share between 3 (it was a giant), with my daughter having plenty too. Grilled perfectly and simply, allowing the best flavour of the fish to be enjoyed. The waiter spoke to my daughter and brought us a high chair and toys... More

We had an excellent meal here and shall be going back again. They do fish and sea food, cooked simply and uncomplicated, better than any other restaurant in the area. We had a whole grilled sea bass between 3 of us and it was delicious. The service was excellent and they provided genuinely helpful service for our baby and were... More

The food is good. The place is crowded. The service is ok. Long queues almost every time I went there. Try the fresh fish and sea food.
