Excellent little local restaurant serving simple but utterly delicious fish, freshly grilled over hot coals. Very tasty and exceedingly good value.

Great food, mainly fresh grilled fish with good (strooong) wine. Stuff is pleasant, helpful. Crowded with locals, a cute dog under the table, and interesting decoration l from 70ities.There's a display with fish. YOU CHOOSE THEY GRILL. Moderate prices. I liked the dessert with orange.

We arrived late for lunch so there wasn’t a massive selection of fish but we had the grilled “douradas” and “almeijas” and they were delicious. Perfectly cooked fish and seafood. Spot on.

We loved this restaurant. You can choose your meal at the counter. There is also a big BBQ. The quality is very fine and by the way it's very cheap. Go there and enjoy.

Chip. Nice grill. They cook what ever you pick by your finger. It's not so clean as it should be. Good choice of wine. Too bad, that they not accept any cards.
