This restaurant was recommended by our tour guide on our private day trip,was expecting it may be a bit of a "tourist trap"(but we WERE in a "tourist area",so what!!).It turned out to be a well run family affair of some 40+ years standing.Very authentic in my estimation,great food,good service and well maintained old building. The grilled sardines, alone, were worth the lunchtime visit. Reasonably priced overall.

A lovely atmosphere and some excellent fish, make this buzzy restaurant a great place to visit. Hugely busy with locals and tourists alike.

Stay away unless you want a super touristy, overpriced, over salted food and arrogant waiters. Oh, make sure to check your bill before you leave, they might throw in some extras... We have been traveling all over Portugal for 10 days and that was by far the worst dining experience...Look for some low key, "hall in a wall" kind of type places to experience a real Portuguese authentic dishes!

Great little local restaurant in a village of Azolia. I had an excellent dish of lulas (squid sauteed in sauce) and the sweetest melon & prosciutto for a starter. My partner had grilled cuttlefish. All dishes and drinks were very generously portioned and everything seemed very fresh. Most other guests were Portuguese, which was a good sign. Service is friendly and very efficient. Highly recommended!

We visited this restaurant on our way to Cabo da Roca. The restaurant is very pleasant looking, it has a nice little terrace as well, but the inside is pretty big, good for groups as well. We were in quite a rush to catch the sunset, so only ordered main dishes. The squid kebab was good, but the squid in sauce and grated cheese was unforgettable, absolutely advised to have that. Service was great as well, prices and very friendly.
