“Great views and food but not worth the price”
Reviewed 28 August 2014 via mobile

We had very high expectations due to all the good reviews.

When we were showed to our table we had reserved in advance we had to wait several minutes for someone to even look at us and to finally give us a menu. Then even longer to order drinks and food. It felt like the staff was ignoring us which made a bad start to our evening. After we had finally ordered food and drinks the staff seemed to know we were there and we had a great evening!

Food was really good but not something special and not worth the price. And it's kinda ridiculous that they charge €3,50 per person for some bread, oil, butter and olives. We know this is the ritual in Portugal to charge for bread and extras but €3,50 per person seems a bit much.

Scenery is beautiful! The restaurant is spacious and light but gets kid of loud.

“Views Views Views and Food”
Reviewed 25 August 2014

This place has the best views in Peniche. The food is amazing. Overall Peniche is not for those who are looking for a 5* star experience. However Nau dos Corvos makes the visit worth while. Service is great. English speaking staff and the food (curried fish) was so great!

“What a find in Peniche!”
Reviewed 25 August 2014

Peniche is not the biggest draw of a town, unless you're a surfer!, however this restaurant is a gem! Perched up on the cliff-top next to the lighthouse, the Nau dos Corvos is a wonderful fish restaurant with great service. You know you are in for a treat when there a more chefs than customers! We have the curries prawn and golden bream - really recommend this. Find time to visit this restaurant, you won't be disappointed!

“Excellent food with a very nice view”
Reviewed 21 August 2014

We were a little bit disappointed by our visit to the city of Peniche earlier that day, so we wanted to make it up with a nice dinner. A nice dinner it was! It was one of the most exciting dinners we had in years, and we even did not have to pay so much. What a view, what a nice food (fish!) and on top of it, what a nice waitress. So we sat there, unplanned, in casual clothes, having a very special evening, looking at the sundown, enjoying the food and the wine.

“The best food and the best view”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

Right on the edge of Cape Carvoeiro lays a modernly designed restaurant with a panoramic view that is simply jaw dropping. A "Nau dos Corvos" - roughly translated into "The crows' galleon" - makes you feel like you're inside a ship's bridge. The food may be a little expensive but the fresh fish, and ingredients, all cooked to order, the quiet and inconspicuous service, the attention to details, and of course the view to the Berlengas islands makes this place a mandatory stop in Peniche, particularly for lunch. Diners aren't as quiet. The nearby lighthouse is very popular with the locals and the tourists.
