I was recommended this place by the concierge in my hotel.

Tucked away in this local fishing village in Santo Antonio de Lisboa, I was a sole diner in this unassuming locale which appeared to have more staff than customers.

A non English speaking team combined with an entirely Portuguese menu made for some challenging decision making but I think I did ok in the end.

Noticed the 'pastel camarão' with cream cheese, which is shaped and appears like a Cornish pastie but with filo pastry, fried. It was cooked fresh to order so was very tasty as a starter.

I then ordered the festival of oysters in the masculine size. I asked if it was enough and should have noticed the glint in the teenage boys eye.

Plate after plate of what can only be described as Devine oysters arrived relentlessly to my table and after the 7th plate, I called quits.

All in all I must have eaten close to 50 oysters. They were simply delicious. Fresh, locally sourced and at a price that can only lead me to believe I was robbing them at 88 Reals (£18 - EIGHTEEN POUNDS FOR GODS SAKES).

Some caveats.
1) make sure you call before you come. They close during the afternoon.
2) make sure you have at least a translator app with Internet. They don't speak a word of English, which is fine. My occasional obrigado and cing porfavor seemed sufficient!
3) come on an empty stomach
4) ensure you have return transport arranged.

Driving around on Christmas Day and this was one of the few places open. Ordered a dozen oysters, they were so good we ordered a second dozen.

Nothing beats sitting in the shade by the sea eating fried prawns and drinking cold beer. This is a small seafood place that mainly does oysters and prawns. I'm guessing as it's right next to the oyster beds, the foods pretty fresh. We had oil and prawns in garlic ( 31 Reals ) and 2 large original beers. A lovely relaxing place.
