This place is perfect for a simply delicious meal. If you are expecting to eat 5 star seafood with lovely presentation then you shouldn't be in this restaurant or Peniche. The food is tasty as it is simple, fresh and delicious. This place provided us with an exceptional fish stew. The waiter told us that they had to prepare all... More

We were late and they accommodated us without any fuss. We were looking for a good cataplana in coastal Portugal and we could not have asked for a more authentic, delicious one. The family running the restaurant offers great service, food is very well run. We highly recommend this restaurant.

Nau is a local restaurant full of locals, and for good reason. The meals are generous, warm, and full of pride. The staff are attentive and happy. I had 1/2 meals each time, more than enough for a main meal. I particularly liked the veal, but all the meals I spotted looked delicious. Great value, highly recommended.

This place deserves a higher rating. We just happened to stumble onto this place. It's off the beaten path but worth the visit. The food was perfect and the staff was super friendly. My family and I left very satisfied.

My husband insisted on going to this restaurant based on TripAdvisor reviews, I was sceptical when I saw the place - it was empty, paper tablecloths, old-fashioned decor and lukewarm welcome from the water was making me nervous....BUT we ordered the fish stew, which was one of the best meals we have ever had in Portugal. The restaurant filled up... More

You'd easily walk past this little gem. Excellent value and local food. Clean cosy restaurant with daily specials such as Cod in Cream. Good sized portions and quick service.

Went in, based on the recommendations on tripadvisor. The place was completely empty, save one terrified couple poking about in something that looked like pre-diced, pre-fried potato cubes and some fried eggs. And rice. And pre-cut carrots. Looked absolutely awful. Obviously a restaurant where the chef has no interest in cooking. Would eat there for my life.
