Arrastão is located just by the river Tagus (Tejo), on the south bank in Alcochete. dispite you have to cross the river, it is on a few minutes form Lisbon. On the way there enjoy the great view that you get from the "Vasco da Gama" bridge. In terms of food, this is a great place to have fresh grilled... More

If we are in Lisbon we just need to cross the Vasco da Gama bridge and 10 minutes after we are there. Waiting for us is a friendly couple and we can choose our fish before seat and some minutes after we have in our table one of the best fresh fish I tried in this area. Deserts are also... More

If you're looking for fresh fish, then this is the place to go. Very good fish, where you arrive and choose what you want to eat (grilled). Very friendly staff, this is a place for families and business lunches. A comfortable place to seat and eat (not luxurious). With a parking place right in front of their main door, this... More

Nice place to lunch or dinner, with a new look but similar quality. I had lunch for two, a delicious fresh fish with baked potatoes and a nice salad. A good suggestion to marry with this dish, a house white wine. We finished with an home made confectionery. The invoice was as expected not over high. Good suggestion for a... More

The place is located near the Alcochete beach and its very basic when it comes to decoration or comfort, as the interior looks like a big fisherman's house... The food it's good, and the fish it's fresh and cooked perfectly! I recommend the "Choco Grelhado sem tinta", all sliced with olive oil and a few potatoes... Very good! We tried... More

Fish and fish eggs where excellent. It is always nice to look at your food before it lands in your dish. Since it was Sunday lunch time and we were a big group, I made a reservation - highly recommended. Minus sign: apparently, they buy their fish on Saturday; so, on Sunday, one gets the leftovers from the previous day... More

The fish is of good quality and fresh, there's no denying that, however you pay almost twice what you would in any other restaurant in the area, and eat less (the food won't be as good either!) Arrastão is really a big disappointment :( (to you and your wallet)

We had lunch here with my family. I took the squid in black ink. It was a nice dish. The restaurant is a nice family restaurant. We did have to wait very long for the food. The thing is, the restaurants in Portugal are of very high quality so having just good food is not good enough here. This place... More
