We were recommended the restaurant when we asked our hotel reception for a good local seafood restaurant. As other reviews have said the portions are good sized and we learnt to decline the delicious garlic bread. We had a sharing platter for 2 and it was delicious. You could choose for the fish to be grilled with salt or house... More

This is a great restaurant serving excellent fish dishes. In fact so good we went twice within the one week. Excellent fish, friendly service and lots of choice on the menu. Only possible complaint is that the portions really are on the excessive side. Having been given a complimentary "amuse bouche", then garlic bread and then a starter, we really... More

We enjoyed Lareira Portuguesa last year, so this year we went back, and took a friend with us. It was good, but not quite up to last year. I don't think that's just me remembering with rose-tinted spectacles. I repeated my fish stew order of last year - the dish (again two servings) was still ample and tasty. But this... More

We always have at least one visit to Lareire Portuguesa, there is nothing flash of fine dining about this restaurant, just good food and lots of it! The place s always filled with locals and to me that's a good sign. there is a constant hum from all of the families that gives the restaurant a warm friendly feel.

You will see this three course menu offered outside the restaurant but will not be offered it inside unless you ask. However it contains 5 starters, 5 main courses and 5 deserts. Need I say more?

We generally try a variety of restaurants and there lots nearby but ate here 3 times in our week there. Fish every time and standard consistently excellent. Portions generous - you don't need a starter! (and, surprisingly, they made no attempt to sell us one!). Not the cheapest place around but good value. Ask about the catch of the day.... More
