Where can I start, could not communicate in English...that was a very big issue, we finally ordered 1 swordfish and 1 codfish and we ordered some rice because we couldn't understand if the fish has any garnish included, the fish came with some boiled potatoes,...More

Truly awful meal here today. The place is clearly understaffed and our waiter simply couldn't care less about us. We ordered quite quickly and my meal arrived. My wife's food didn't come and eventually I asked the waiter where it was only to be told...More

I've been to this place many times over these past years. What I really liked was that you could enjoy seafront view, nice food and a service that would not be great but local and compatible with the price. Very recently they've renovated the place,...More

This place is understaffed. We had to wait 1h30m to wait for our food. Ridiculous. Total meal time almost 3 hours. Absurd

Located beachfront in Praia da Poca at Estoril. This is one of many choices you have in the area, but it is located at a lower level than the street and you can miss it if you don't know what you are looking for. Look...More

One of the best spots to have fresh grill fish (portuguese way) with great view and good drinks! And it's not expensive at all. With 70€, I had lunch with my wife and 2 kids having a Dourada grelhada, 2 tuna salad, big Sangria jar,...More

Our favourite in Praia da Poça. It's a quite simple one. We recommend food on the grill. Both pork ribs and sardines are tasty. We had them plus cheese and drinks and paid little more than 20 euros. And it has WiFi!
