The best food we had in Sesimbra by far! The owner and his team were all great, super friendly and amazing attention to detail. It was so good we went twice. The green curry was delicious as was the grouper with sweet potato and the...octopus. The waiter even remembered what my son had had the previous time and recommended something based on this. Honestly can’t recommend highly enough!More

I was there again, after 2 years. This time with my wife and we loved it. The Restaurant is small and very warm from the ambience. The owner and his team very friendly and provide super service. As starter we had razor clams in garlic...sauce, which were so good. Then a Steak with vegetables and Self made fries, along with a red wine that matched perfectly. Dessert and a portuguese Brandy completed the menu 😋 We come back next year, for sure!More

We stumbled across this delightful little Resturant. It’s very small with some outside seating. The menu again not overly huge but boy the food is magnificent. We went in purely because there was Octopus on the menu and the oven roast octopus with the hazelnuts...and leeks was an absolute delight so much so that we booked again for two days later which we never do on holiday! On our second visit we both had a grouper with the sweet potato mash beautifully presented and super tasty only criticism which is tiny was the skin wasn’t as crunchy as I would’ve liked but that’s minutiae in the overall experience. Would thoroughly recommend a visit.More

TripAdvisor points in the right direction again. After being in Lisbon for almost two weeks, Sesimbra seemed like an interesting side day trip for two beach bums. This spot was rated very well on TripAdvisor, so we gave it a shot at lunch time (about...2:00). We just slid in without a reservation. Great service. Nice bread, olives and olive oil with our 1/2 liter beers while we waited for our meals. I had roasted octopus with scallions, potato and chestnuts. An abundant serving of the most nicely prepared octopus I have had in Portugal. My wife had swordfish with onion and tomato. It also was scrumptious. A day at the beach and fine fresh seafood. You can’t beat it.More

We passed and stopped for dinner not expecting too much. We were all pleasantly surprised. One vegetarian and three fish dishes and all were well prepared and delicious. Service was good and prices reasonable. We will go back when next in Sesimbra.

Casa Mateus was recommended to us by other fabulous local restaurateur. We had a bit of trouble finding the place, as it was just down a little side street and the owner graciously talked us to him and then gave us a terrific outdoor table...with a view of the wsterfront. We ordered a delicious bottle of white wine called Alice, and oysters and razor clams to start. For mains, we had green Thai curry seafood and swordfish, both delicious. This was our last night in Sesimbra otherwise we would have gone back again. This is a family run restaurant with mom cooking, dad on the door and a very elegant well spoken son taking care of the customers. 100% great experience!More
