... É sardinha de primeira. I read this inside the restaurant. Not a fan of sardines but the food is very good. Well known by locals, very good restaurant. Not the best service but not bad at all.

This restaurant is quite authentic with its "bar" downstairs where the locals eat. They just sit there in front of the bar and order small plates. Great restaurant to eat some fresh seafood. The menu was quite hard to understand as only a part of...More

Really great place to feed you and your friends:) be prepared to wait for a table for even an hour especially during summer time as this is very popular place. But food presentation is great and it tastes even better.

A family history, connected since its early ages to the catering industry and that, on 15 May 1976, inaugurated the restaurant “Caçarola 1”, on the side street of the Casino. This restaurant, managed by Graça Mortágua and her husband Alcino Mortágua, is a welcoming place suitable for all social classes. “We have clients looking for snacks, working men looking for the “dish of the day” and more formal clients who wish for an elaborate meat, fish or seafood dish. This versatility allows us to create a familiar environment, where everyone feels good and finds the meal they are looking for”.

This family from Mortágua welcomes wonderfully and equally all clients, and makes this restaurant a truly familiar space. It has 17 employees all year round (a number that almost doubles during the summer), and it is open daily from10am to 2am.
It is a restaurant where the fresh fish is the king, but where you can also eat excellent meat in a great diversity of typical dishes.
The chef recommends Kid in the Oven (on Sundays), Bass “Massada” (Pasta), Monkfish Rice or “Caçarola” Codfish.
