Thank you very much for your nice comment. You are right about the "febras", a lot of local people come here for the "febras" and the fish. We hope to welcome you again.

Generous portions of good quality food beautifully cooked and presented in an immaculately clean and comfortable environment. The people (Sergio, Jack, Diogo and Patrick) are all so very welcoming and provide a professional and very friendly service. Excellent value for money.

Description
Ca te Espero is a typical restaurant with a long tradition. It has been known for its quality and for its cosy and homy atmosphere, since 1976.Our food quality is the result of the use of fresh ingredients in the preparation and cooking of our traditional recipes. We point out Bife de Atum com Milho Frito (Tuna fish Steak with fried Maize), Filete de Espada com Banana (Fried Scabbard fish with Banana), Pepper Steak and Pork Fillet Ca te Espero Style.We will be very pleased to welcome you!
