We had a lovely meal here. The food was very good, very tasty and a very big serving. Service took a while but we were warned by the staff. Staff was very helpful. Definitely recommend it if you're around.

The place is nice, really close to the beach, the seafood is fantastic (especially the sargo...) and the plates really, really abundant...Portuguese style! The price, as normally in this area, completely affordable. We'll come back!!!

This is probably one of the best restaurants in Zambujeira (although located slightly on the outskirts). The menu is focused on Portuguese fish and seafood dishes. The service is good and the décor is simple but nice. Eating outside watching the sun go down is an option I would recommend. I’ve tried several seafood starters and the ‘Massada de Marisco’...

A beautiful view to the Atlantic Ocean. Friendly waiters and an authentic Alentejo Menu. Don't lose the "feijoada de buzios" and the fresh grilled fish. A list with Portuguese wines at an affordable prices. Congrats and we hope to be back soon! Obrigado

We were here on a family vacation. We had some clams and fresh grilled fish for dinner - both nicely done. We sat outside, where we could enjoy a beautiful sunset by the ocean - definitely sit outside with ocean view if having dinner. Staff was very friendly. Not cheap, but cheaper than many restaurants in the center of Zambujeira... More

Don't be afraid : The road is a few meters away and traffic is scarce . Inevitably "Traquitanas" is a season's restaurant with specialties like "Feijoada de Chocos", or "Polvo Frito" or even "Arroz de Tamboril" plus a few other specialties that are cooked upon demand , and cooking plus preparation' time is not so long as one might think...

I've been a guest to this restaurant for the last 20 years I guess. Everytime I go to Zambujeira it's a must and I've never been deceived. Last weekend again great barnacles and the best grilled fish from the coast for an affordable price. Way to go! Thank you

The restaurant is managed by an excellent combination of knowledge of fish and see fruits (mariscos) coupled with excellent service and wine advisory. Every dish (from the parcedes up to the desserts) shows that simple (quality of the products helping) is controlled and offer the best preparations: good surprises are generated in some of the details and with the adequate...

We visit the place for a late lunch on our way back from the beach. Apparently we disturb the quiteness of the place and this has been reflected on the poor service we received. Sorry for them, we decided to cancel our visit the upcoming days.
