On a very rainy Saturday already late for lunch, we were received with a warm smile. The restaurant was still super busy, but we had a table ready very quickly. We had seafood, high quality and really tasty. The toasted bread with butter was incredible. We ended with a seafood cream soup, that provided the comfort needed to face again... More

Had lunch at this very popular and busy Portuguese restaurant. As always the fish was very fresh and well cooked. At lunchtime they do a dish of the day. It's always worth asking what the dish is, you can order a half portion if it's not something you're familiar with, a great way to sample the local food, at around... More

We visited o Jacinto for the first time for a birthday dinner, and it was a perfect choice. Pulpo Salad couldn't have been better, Monk fish cataplana was fantastic and enough for 3. Good choice of wine, nice setting, attentive, quick and friendly service, and finally price was more than adequate for the quality of food. We will be back... More

We were really disappointed by the service of this restaurant. They let us stand about 15 minutes in the entrance area. We had the "arroz de marisco" for two. The food was ok but too expensive in relation to some other local restaurants with the same dishes.

We have been to this restaurant on numerous occasions and it never fails to please. The staff are friendly and attentive. If you like shellfish and fish you cannot fail to be impressed by the selection available. The locals eat here which is always a good sign. Fresh fish cooked simply with delicious vegetables what more can you want.

Special treat for 4 of us. The fresh fish, which we all had, was wonderful. Quite pricey for a main street restaurant but service and ambience was good. A cosy place, if not a bit small. Has built up a good deserved reputation with attentive service. Great wine too. Cost a good few quid but would go back again. (Busy... More
