We had a fantastic meal here, felt very well looked after. Beautiful fish and seafood dishes. Less choice of meat. Service can be intrusive the way they refill water glasses but they were fine once we asked them to leave us. Portions very generous. The nicest room (with the view) was designated for smokers....which is a pity. Also possible area for improvement is the lack of desert display which is a must in these traditional restaurants, though they were kind enough to take me through to the kitchen to show me deserts when I asked if there was a desert trolley.

Lovely view from the smoking area... the food here is exquisite! The clams with a light garlic sauce were as fresh as can be as were the prawns ! The masterpiece was the sea bass 'en croute' : I have never rated better!

I have visited this place several time for business.

Typical Portuguese restaurant, the type that was considered fine dining back in the 70s or 80s ; same type as "Pabe" or "D Sancho" which still survive well in Lisbon (the top of the class being obviously "Gambrinus"!).

It is in the quaint town centre of Paco de Arcos and the drive there by the river from Lisbon is beautiful (€15 uber ride). If you are in Lisbon for the day and feel like watching the sea the way there can be a good use of your time.

Very good fresh fish. Food really tastes home-made and cooked with care. Fast and friendly service. Accetpable value for money.

Went with family with two teenagers. Classy interior, waiters in suit and with older charm, attentive and helpful. We tried three different main courses, seabass baked in bread in oven (lovely), cod with mashed potato (to much salt and garlic) and cream seafood soup (actually a starter we managed to get in size of a main course). Waiters lining up and said goodbye as you left the restaurant - a nice gesture.
