Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A really horrible atmosphere created by the waiters. Really rushed and abrupt service, with barely a word spoken to us throughout the whole meal. The waiter couldn’t explain any of the deserts in English or Spanish so we asked if we could see the menu...so that we could understand what options there were but he refused to bring it to us. At the end, the waiter took our payment and just left without saying a word again! Absolutely bizzare experience and certainly wouldn’t recommend people spend time and money in a restaurant that treats them like that. The food wasn’t anything special on top of the horrendous service. Un ambiente realmente horrible creado por los camareros. Servicio realmente apresurado y abrupto, sin apenas hablarnos una palabra durante toda la comida y cuando traían los platos. Cuando preguntamos sobre los postres al final, el camarero no pudo explicar ninguno de los postres en inglés o español, pero se negó a traer el menú para que pudiéramos entender qué opciones había. A final, cuando pagamos por la cuenta el camarero no nos dió las gracias ni nos despidió/dijo adiós! Una experiencia absolutamente extraña y ciertamente no recomendaría que la gente gaste tiempo y dinero en un restaurante que trata así a sus clientes. Encima de todo, la comida no fue nada especial.More

An absolute must at Viana do Castelo, for those who like fresh fish and seafood. Professional and efficient service (not necessarily too nice for northern Portugal standards) Esay to park

recently they have a big outside space for meals and they still provide the best fish meal in the town. Friendly staff, honestly provide a good advice on the Menu. I always will come back.

I went to make a reservation with my family with sports clothes on, when we were judged by the lady in charged, who didn’t even bother to listen to us, making up that there weren’t free tables and sending a waiter to kick us out...(even though we heard people asking for tables that were given one). We were just making the reservation for that night’s dinner and we were discriminated by our look. Well, a Michelin star is not worth our money if the people in charged behave like that.More

Very nice service and great tasting food. Dishes are big so watch out for food waste. We had the grilled sea bass which had many positive recommendations. And still it was a positive surprise.

We have been living in Portugal (Lisbon) since 2006 off and on. We ordered Cataplana for two. It is a solid B+. Fresh fish, and seafood. Generous portion. However, the taste is not that great. Very good service. It is July 1st 2021. Portugal is...Red listed for Covid Delta variant yet the restaurant was overcrowded. The tables were very closely spaced. It is dangerous for their own employees as well as the customers. We ate as fast as possible and left. Fortunately our reservation was at 12:30 PM before the crowd arrived. The price is reasonable. It is 43 Euros for the Cataplana.More

The intention to eat at a Michelin recommended restaurant is misleading here a little bit. The welcome and service was ok but maximum average. The food was ok - we took the octopus salad, tomato salad and as a main dish the fishpasta for 2....The octopus salad was the best of all dishes we choose. The tomato salad was disappointing. The tomatoes were green and cold. The fish pasta main dish was ok, but just ok. There were herbs missing and we had to season it with a lot of pepper and salt to get it tasty. The restaurant was fully booked, I don’t know if that’s the reason why no waiter felt responsible for our table. We had been to the maraberto restaurant besides before and we can strongly recommend to go to maraberto instead of going to tasquinha da Linda, because of better service and food! The pricing is the same but you get definitely more for your time and money!More

This restaurant clearly serves fresh fish but our meal was not so good. The razor clams were stringy and the sauce was dull with mostly lemon and oil but somehow just dull. Our fish was slightly overcooked but we chose not to send it back....It was a fish called Solha which was a very poor cousin of the sole family. To be fair it was our mistake for ordering it slightly egged on by the waiter. Finally our ameioas a bulhao pato were nothing to write home about. Our bill was very high at the end, more than expected for the food we had. This restaurant is overrated in my opinion.More

Service was excellent, efficient but not too fussy. Adequate time between ordering and the courses. Tables well spaced out. View was across the small port but the restaurant itself was attractive. We had the seafood platter which was excellent - razor clams and goose barnacles...(which were firsts for me but delicious), crab, prawns, mussels, clams and a couple of oysters. The wine was also good and reasonably priced. We had to book (Monday lunchtime) and we saw quite a few people turned away.More
