The service was really very good - we could not have asked for more. We speak no Portuguese but the owner spoke fluent English and went out of his to explain each dish. A great friendly... More

The Skinna is a family owned restaurant that serves superb seafood in a charming environment (ask for a table at the exterior balcony), in an efficient and caring way, for a little bit higher than reasonable price. Seafood lovers shouldn't miss this one!

I asked my hotel for a fish restaurant and they sent me to Skinna. Honestly I did not find it that brilliant considering the high price. Also the credit card machine was not working so needed to go to withdraw money. Annoying

A group of 4 of use went to dinner here based on the recommendation of the hotel. They provided a pick up and drop off service from the hotel which was nearby. The location is off the main street and from the outside it does not look great. Once inside it is a little bit better and more like a... More

We went to Skinna based on the reviews, but we're very disappointed as the restaurant is very expensive for the low quality of food it serves. Place is not necessarily good looking, the food was below mediocre and the bill was absurdly high. Will not go back.
