“Great for Fish”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014 via mobile

We were recommended this restaurant by a friend and it didn't disappoint. Not the restaurant for you if you are not a fish or seafood lover. Very friendly but there was only the one person who could speak a little English. We had prawns, cataplana with monkfish and golden bream, excellent.
It is very busy so you have to book, but it is worth the effort.

“o jacinto”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 March 2014

The food is excellent if you like fish, there is a good atmosphere and it is always busy therefore it is best to book in advance. It is more expensive and you can get dressed up and not feel out of place.

“The best Marisqueira I have been to”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 September 2013

Great place, always packed with locals and with the best seafood around.

Try the "Aroz de Marisco", if you love Seafood! You will absolutely adore this dish in such a place. I have eaten this dish so many times in so many places in Portugal, but this is the best one so far!

They are also ever so polite and aware of you, that you feel welcome from the start.

Mind this is a popular restaurant with the Portuguese people, and you should order a table a day or two ahead.

If you are in Vilamoura or Quarteira, I strongly suggest that you try this amazing place.

“Best fish and seafood.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 August 2013

Was told by friends of this restaurant. The place itself is not only unpretentious but also like every other run of the mill, portuguese rest.
But we were there for the meal itself, and that did not disappoint. The fried prawns were fresh, deliciously seasoned with garlic and perfectly cooked. That was the starter. For main meal we had the monkfish cataplana - it had clams, shrimp, peppers,onions, potatoes.... it was just amazing ! Again the freshness of the fish and seafood was obvious and the balance of all seasonings only enhanced the fish itself. We ended up eating far too much and had no space for desert. Well worth the visit.
