We got dropped off as part of our fantastic 'tuktour' and welcomed the free spirited atmosphere. We ordered sardines and seafood skewers everything else (bread/salad/potatoes) magically appeared on the table. I ordered some local white wine and got a whole bottle for less than 10£....More

This was a very good authentic Portuguese charcoal fish restaurant. Great sardines, dorado, with a good table salad. Not sure why anyone would complain about servers we found them to be just fine. We came here for the food, so get over it

Fresh fish with tradition. You are already served with salad and a basket of corn bread. All the fishes are served with boiled potatoes. Photo: salmon

Loved the skewer, and the Sea Bass was outstanding. We arrived 15 minutes prior to opening for lunch and waited outside. At 12:30, we were offered choices between the 2 or 3 worst tables in an empty restaurant. Odd. Then the waiter was impatient and...More

IF you want a real experience this is the place. If you're looking for a romantic night out then this is not the place. I take my Douro Kayak groups there for our celebration dinner and everyone seems to love it.
