“superb seafood”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2013

Came here with friends that have been a few time before and love it and wow we agree...fun and simple place, reminded us of a typical spanish tapas bar...
The food was so tasty..we had assortment of different clams, octopus salad and small shrimp to share then tried tuna steak and fried sole, both typical and plane but still good...came with tomato rice or chips but the rice are not to be missed :)
will be going again!

“Great little place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 March 2013 via mobile

Went there last week on my first visit to Quarteira, based on other Tripadvisor reviews. It is a little tricky to find, but well worth it. The locals were all tucking into dishes of snails, but I opted for fried prawns, which were the best ever. Service was excellent also, and it was really inexpensive. I really recommend it!

“A real find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 August 2012

I was taken here by a Portuguese friend and was introduced to some excellent seafood. It is the sort of place that you would easily walk past - but for sea food lovers it is a must.
The food was excellent and so fresh!
Do try it.

“Amazing seafood at a price you won't believe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2012

Amaizingly well cooked seafood at a rustic restaurant with the right atmosphere for this kind of food.

Food is cooked by a true expert (not a posh chef) and you'll get a 5 star meal at a price you won't believe nor forget.

Best quality/cost for seafood i've ever seen.

Congrats to the owner.
