This is an old established restaurant which serves fresh fish only - no frozen. One of our group had been craving sardines but sadly it was not the season. The cuttle fish was a dream, scabbard fish was a great success and the prawn omelette...More

They served us fried cod from the end of the fish, the parts that one would normally either throw away or feed to the cat. And it was greasy and smelled bad. The fried potatoes were barely edible. All served up by an arrogant waiter...More

Good food first of all, diversified sea food meals or snacks but the price is a bit above average in the area and the service does not follow that in my perspective. Maybe it was my experience but it was a bit crowded and noisy,...More

The "Farol" is a century-old restaurant, the oldest in Setubal and is known for good beer and good seafood, from their own aquariums. With a cozy atmosphere and a great ''Tejo'' river and Lisbon's view, it's a great place to be.The name "Farol" came from the lighthouse's existence in Cacilhas who once helped navigation of small boats,called "Cacilheiros".Cacilheiros are an easy transport to lots of people in Lisbon to the other side of the Tagus river. You can combine the great tour with the excelence to be able to lunch or dinner in Cacilhas and taste our fish or seafood.
