Outstanding food and perfect service. They are dog friendly too. They went above and beyond to make sure we are and our dogs are comfortable. Each dog received a bowl of water within minutes of our arrival. Food was out of this world.

Amazing food, amazing service. First amazing meal in Portugal We did the appetizers of Peruvian savanna Che and mussels in coconut milk Dinner was octopus, deep tenderloin, and deep fried cutter fish (which is like a calamari texture). W sides of mashed potatoes and bread,...too full for dessert. (Being from New England, was a North End feeling) would definitely recommend. Great way to start our Portugal 🇵🇹 vacationMore

Superb from start to finish. The Bloidy May Oysters were exceptional. Our bread was accompanied by little butter fishes, regular butter and squid ink absolutely delicious.Our Brazilian waitress, suggested sharing. We ordered the prawns which said it came with crunchy bread however the bread was...on top and not a roll which we were quite relieved about. We then moved onto the squid which was absolutely exceptional, melt in the mouth beautifully sliced and a side salad with radishes and tomatoes and a beautiful dressing. Being very greedy we them moved onto the fillet steak with the foie gras and truffle sauce we ordered the additional truffle mash! . Cannot begin to tell you how amazing it was. We ordered a beautiful bottle of white wine recommended by the waitress which was lovely. Chef came out to talk to us and then introduced us to some local desert wines and Port. An amazing experience in a beautiful Resturant the ambience was superb the food was amazing we had a great time.More

Best restaurant in Sesimbra! Nice cosy restaurant, friendly staff and outstanding food. Excellent Wine, despite one was corked,but host consequently compensated. The restaurant deserves a Michelin Bib Gourmand.

We like the concept of sharing plates in this cozy place. We ordered a variety of cuttlefish, squid, octopus, mussels and a number of sides and all were delicious and well prepared. Dessert was just as good. Undoubtedly one of the best seafood meals we've...had.More

We enjoyed the food at Zagaia but have been to better restaurants in the wider Lisbon area. The cerviche was very good and the clams were also a highlight. We found the garlic toast to be a little dry and the octopus under seasoned /...sauce lacked flavour. The rice oyster dish was stodgy and salty (least good dish we tried). Overall a good experience and very attentive service.More

Simple menu with great dishes and very friendly and attentive staff Must have dishes : Cuttlefish croquettes with black garlic majo Seafood soup Oysters with Bloody Mary Mussels with coconut milk and kefir leaves Segretos (black pork cheeks) with coriander and deep fried açorda Chocolate...mousse with olive oil We were there twice just to try all dishes and were really impressed with service, presentation and quality of the dishes and the great value for money. For a Portuguese restaurant it is not cheap but it’s really worth every penny you spend there. The Maître d’Hotel is great, I recommend to reserve as the restaurant is pretty smallMore
