The grilled fish special of the day was sold out when we arrived, so we went a bit more upmarket. The fish itself was very well grilled, but the accompanying potatoes and salad were ordinary at best. We were gamed into buying more wine than we had ordered.

It is such a pity that the owner/manager acted like a "vulture" and completely spoilt a potential enjoyable lunch break. We stopped here for lunch, the place was busy with local workers and some tourists, the shady terrace looked very inviting and the big BBQ was sizzling. 
A gentleman, whom we believe is the owner (or at least the older folk who takes the order) brought us the menu, not a smile, not a word (not even in Portuguese) to tell us about the specials of the day which are always present during lunch in Portugal. He only brought us the full price menu. 
When he came back to take our order, I asked in Portuguese about the lunch specials ... He did not seem happy about that! He probably thought he caught 2 tourists with the full menu. We should have left right there. But we were hungry and it was almost 2 pm so we stayed. The gentleman only enumerated the 6 specials, without explaining, as we found out after, that it also included a drink each (beer and wine as well), desert and coffee. I do not pretend that everybody speaks English to you when you travel abroad (and English is mot my first language eitger) but, if you are in the hospitality business, at least make an effort to be pleasant with your customers! I understand and speak a bit of Portuguese (at least enough to order at the restaurant!) and I would have appreciated him at least trying to explain their lunch formula instead of trying to rip us off. 
When we left he was standing right at the entrance of the terrace and he did not even say thank you or goodbye. Maybe he should just work in the kitchen or at the cash where he doesn't need to interact with patrons!

Wonderful food, friendly service and extremely good value. The waiting time is a bit
too long but all the food is freshly cooked so worth putting up with.

For those reviewers complaining that not the full menu is available that is because they don't have all the possible fresh fish every day. You might want to go back to your local frozen fish and chip . Here they have it in display and so it's the wood fired charcoal grill . For 13 euros we got an amazing ultra fresh very large shrimp and excellent picagna . And super service great fish appetizers wonderful atmosphere and we purchased the most expensive wine in the list for 14 euros . Fantastic evening, chose authentic
