Restinga is a local favorite with locals and tourists too....It is located on the water in a small, quaint Portuguese village...It is colorfully decorated with marine items and local carnaval decorations. It is known for shrimp and oysters and squid in all forms...It is very popular and almost always full of happy eaters.

I actually really like this place for a very cold beer, local cachaça and appetizers like fried fish samplers, shrimp and the view. The entrees, however, are nothing special and won´t wow you, it is ok seafod. Season gets overcrowded and service getspoor, off season is very pleasant.
