We had lunch at Baluarte da Avenida today and overall enjoyed the experience a lot. The owner is very friendly and the service he provided was great, very warm without being overbearing. He also speaks excellent English which does not seem to be the norm in other restaurants in Setubal. For two people we had the friend cuttlefish as a... More

Went to see Setubal and found this lovely restaurant. Setubal is more authentic in my view than Sesimbra as there are less turists. That is also reflected in the restaurant scene where you have many small restaurant - all rather cheap, but still good. This restaurant was no exception. We had the tiger prawns, and they were hugh. Picture doesn't... More

This is a great place for food and wine. We had a fantastic shellfish platter for €50 and a lovely local bottle of white wine for only €10. The owner and his son(?) were helpful and attentive and got our demands for some great seafood just right. When I'm back I'll definitely revisit.

When I explained to the owner we were interested in sampling lots of small seafood dishes rather than a traditional starter and main course approach he got it immediately and suggested a seafood platter with a range of shellfish. He also didn't try to foist the most expensive option on us but suggested a cheaper one first and then the... More

Overall an overpriced average restaurant. Has a nice entrance but then the rest of the restaurant is plain and outdated, with no particular care to details. Entrées are banal same goes for the desserts. Had the seafood rice which is overpriced for what you get, and have had better. The rest of the food ordered was good but not delicious.... More

The staff here are professional and friendly in this well run restaurant. I had the sea bass, which was grilled and was cooked to perfection. Perhaps the best seafood that I had during my travels in Portugal.

The grilled fish here was the best we had in Portugal. Cooked to perfection and carefully served to us at the table. The service was friendly, attentive and personal. Really a highlight of our culinary experiences on this trip.

We met the owner at the front of his restaurant and he promised great food. He delivered on that promise. The food was excellent, fresh and simply prepared. It was so good we went back the following evening and had another great meal. Two of the best meals we had in Portugal. Highly recommend this restaurant.

This family owned restaurant served the very best seafood we had on our 5 weeks of holidays in Portugal. If you are in Setubal you must give the owner an opportunity to impress you as he did us. The food is simple, fresh and reasonably priced which lives up to the owners motto " Perfeicao e Simpatia" ( Simply Perfect)... More
