This is a must stop for lunch when you drive by Vila Nova da Milefontes. The restaurant is on the beach and you can have a walk along the water:) Good clams!

The best thing about this place is the view and especially the sunset. Fish wasnt very fresh and best quality... it was grilled too long and dry because of that. Clams - really low quality and small Desert - disaster Service - disaster Stay away...More
