A lot of years we visit Espinho, our favorite restaurant is Terminal 8. Kind owner and family and also the waiter Diogo Silva is very correct. A lot of meat and fish to choose.We hope to visit this restaurant near the station many times in the future!

We ate here a few months ago and the food was good but on our latest visit it seemed less so. My chicken breast fillets were cooked to hardness (which from a hygiene point of view may be no bad thing) and my wife's pork fillet also seemed to have had a long spell under the grill. The restaurant is... More

We had an extremely pleasant lunch, sat outside in a busy part of town but with a very relaxed feel. We had excellent chicken and sea bass, but I made the mistake of asking for chips - and got crisps instead! (My fault) The food was well cooked and the waiter was excellent throughout.

We visited on the last night of our stay. My wife was extremely ill after eating here. We both had Pasta but it was not properly cooked, and it just tasted of tomato sauce, we should have returned the food but instead we ate it , big mistake on our part. We don't know what caused one of us to... More

Your premise is severely flawed. Had the seafood been at fault, you too would have gotten sick with food poisoning, considering both your meals had the exact same ingredients--save for the sauce, which was only partially different (yes, even the heavy cream used to concoct it was from the same container). This is logical. If anything, your pasta contained a... More

Came here for another holiday meal with our friends. Looked very nice and was cheap which is always a bonus. They had English menus provided and the staff also spoke very good English. I myself ordered the seafood pasta which I thoroughly enjoyed. One person I was with did accidentally get the wrong meal but they happily changed it for... More

Holidayed in Espinho for 10 years! First time we have eaten here!!! Sad, we have missed out. It should be number two or three. The pork tenderloin was superb. For those of us who have not learned basic Portuguese, the menu is in English, the staff speak English ( we must Learn some ) and they are as friendly as... More

Very amiable staff, was greeted upon entrance to the restaurant and say by the window. The tuna patê entree was quite tasty and so were the octopus fillets I had. Other than that I think everything was pretty good and the host quite funny.
