Porta do Sol, also known as Paquito's (the Spanish owner) is a perfect place to enjoy gorgeous seafood. Not a sophisticated restaurant, but rather a good, good food.
The owner, Paquito, is always around. Ask him for the special of the day. Usually, the must try are the "Bacalhau Debora" (codfish), the shrimps in creamy cheese, the "moqueca" (a mix of several seafoods) and the octopus (don't miss!).
The menu is somewhat more expensive than other resturants, but an entree is enough for 3 persons. So, at the bottom line, it becomes more than fair.
Try also the "sangria", a drink made with wine ans fruits juice.

"Porta do Sol" or "Paquito", which is the nickname of the owner, is the best place to enjoy a shrimp, a codfish, "una paella", "una sangria" or "un pulpo a la gallega" in Brazil. Very good.

Whenever I go to Santos, I have to stop by this place and have lunch, since they are not open for dinner. I usually order the white tuna, or Meca, with an oriental sauce or named Thai sauce, which is a thick soy sauce with some sweet and sour flavor. Anyway, the sangria, a type of drink made with wine, pineaple is on the house and the banana with passion fruit syrup as well. You may spend about 20-25 dollars per person, it's worth it. Service is friendly and good. Paquito, the owner is always there, serving and checking if the customers are being well assisted.
