Great place! Fresh fish everyday, and the menu varies with the fish they catch. Fish of the day 15 euros, and you get a whole fish! I got the Boca Negra, a fish i never tasted before, and it was an amazing taste. It was difficult to find though, but so worth it!

Had not seen or read any reviews beforehand so came to this by chance - what a wonderful find!

I came to see the coast and decided to get lunch. Bar Caloura was a great find! Polite staff (I don't speak Portuguese) very helpful, I didn't know how much I would enjoy Lapa a until I had them here, Delicious! Also had a combination of swordfish and sarge, both needed no extra seasoning or pimenta sauce. Very reasonably priced.... More

The view from the terrace is unbeatable and they will show you the catch of the day. We picked swordfish and blue fish. The dish came with potatoes and vegetables. There's also a salad bar if you order fish plates.
