Seafood specialists inside a boat, in one of the narrowest streets in Aveiro. Great seafood rice and portuguese style clams. Not cheap, but fair. Reservation recommended, it is a small place. Very warm service.

I was surprised, it was in a narrow road, no signs pointing to it . But it was a good, very good visit ! Deco is related with boats, like the inside of a boat, wall in wood , slide doors, small and cosy . The list was great , we tried the fish soup and the Bacalhau com Broa... More

We had some clams and arroz de marisco. Really, one of the best ones I've ever had. Tons of seafood inside and super tasty My advice is to book in advance, it's a small place and gets full fast so we had to come back 1.5hours after. As well, at least during this week, only one person to serve.. So... More

Really, really great food. We had fillets with octopus rice, prawn rice with dried garlic and beef "à Batel". If there was more, the more we had eaten. For dessert try the coconut and egg pudding. Don't miss O Batel restaurant if you're in town. Be aware, seats limited, so be on time.

The restaurant mimics the atmosphere of a boat. It is a small, very original place. The fish is served by weight, and is simple, but really tasty. The side is also very tasty. The service is really good. The price is a bit high for what is served, but is worth the experience.

A small restaurant in Aveiro. Come early or make a reservation! Very friendly service, they explain everything well and give advice when needed. Clams as starter where excellent! A place for fish lovers!

In Aveiro, pretty much all seafood and fish is totally fresh and awesome, so is O Batel. They have a really nice dish that include the seasoned rice and seafood. Good restuarant, quiet choice indoors.
