We loved the grilled tuna belly - so tender, tasty and juicy! - and the sardines, both coming with a side for only 9 euros each. The menu is in Portuguese only, so bring a couple of phones to speed up the translation!

Very good and tasy local food. Friendly staff. The prices are very good. You can choose among some dishes of the day (at lunch time) and from the menu at all time. Recommended for someone that like to try local food.

Nice local restaurant, good food and relatively cheap. Unfortunately there is no lavatory and if you order a salad you have to ask for olive oil and salt & pepper but that's no big deal. Highly recommended.

Tipical Portuguese Restaurant at the hart of the tradicional fish and meat city market. Here you find fresh products at any time of the day. You can park at the lower floor parking and acess directly to the restaurant. Any particular desire from the fish market you can find at this restaurant.
