We ordered the fresh fish of the day and we didn't regret our order..it was very very delicious! Afterwards, we chose some homemade desserts recommended by the waitor which very outstanding too. In addition, the local guest and the very friendly staff make it an extra nice visit. Highly recommended!

We ordered from the specials of the day menu, the sardines and bream were both excellent. The waitress skillfully removed the bones from the bream at the table. The desserts of biscuit cake and a swiss roll type cake were both good. Total cost 30euro for a meal for two including wine, desserts and coffee, decent value for the food... More

We were recommended this as the best fish and seafood restaurant in Esposende and had a meal of the freshest prawns and salmon imaginable. Great service, great setting on the main road along the river estuary and simply great food and wine. What more can you ask for.

Went there for dinner while walking the camino portugues. Showed up at 7:30 but the place didn't open until 7:45 and the chef rolled in even later. Meanwhile the young staff did its best to let us in, offer drinks and appetizers, etc... Great soups and tasty fresh sardines. The other fishes in the ice box didn't look that good... More

Small family restaurant, near the town center. My wife had fish, but I had the Portuges Steak, and it was delicious (highly recommend). Besides, the service was very good. The prices were even better. Go!

The restaurant was recommended to us as featuring typical and authentic Portuguese cuisine. We were the only diners in the restaurant and the 'Staff" were all watching a soccer game and seemed bothered by having to wait on us. They brought a plate of prawns which we didn't order and sent back since they had a bad smell. The dish... More
