We spotted Marinheiro while on our hop on / hop off tour and thought "that looks nice" and yes, it was. really nice. A small family run restaurant with a good choice of food and plenty of good fish to choose from. the sole was excellent as was my wife's sea bass. Terrific choice of wine at a very reasonable...

I got the seafood rice, it came with some fresh shrimp and 2 mussles LOL, the rest was frozen. It also came with FAKE lobster meat. Overall a waste of money, last time i eat here.

We had a tasty light dinner of fried fish (sardinas and some other fish we were recommended) and 2 beers. Total was about €15. Close to aliados so super easy to reach. Highly recommended!

The food was made from frozen seafood and the cooking (way too much) made it barely edible. The service was allright, and so was the waiting time, but all in all not worth wasting time on, and not cheap compared to quality.

You might want to check to see if your grandma is working the kitchen at Marinheiro, and her grandson the tables. Everything about this comfortable, unpretentious place spoke “my grandma” to us, and not incidentally “real Portuguese”, including the real ingredients, large portions of food, the futbal game going in the background. Service was very attentive. The most expensive bottle... More

The restaurant was close to where we were staying so we thought we'd try it. The staff were helpful and friendly. The first surprise was a nice one, for us. We ordered a sardine starter. In fact, it turned out to be whitebait, which I prefer, cooked perfectly. Unfortuntately, our main couse was less good. The tuna steak which I... More

The food reminded me of my grandma's cooking. We had a pork plate and a mixed meat plate. I saw the cooks peeling and slide the potatoes fresh for our plates! MMM We had Mateus Rose for wine and a maracuja tart and a chocolate mouse for dessert that were also homemade.

You HAVE to try the grilled octopus - a tender meat which you never have enough ! Prices are very affordable and staff is nice even if the room has no charm.

We went there last summer based on tripadvisor ratings, but it was just disappointing. Sardinhas & fried calamari were terrible, as well as the service. Regrettable experience.

The food was disappointing us. The place is very clean but not worth the TripAdvisor certificates If you'd ask me. I had the feeling that some food on our plate was warmed by microwave. 😭
