When we are traveling, we dream of coming across a family owned and operated place that does everything right - food, especially, but service and kindness to strangers. More often than not it never happens, but then sometimes it does. We wanted to see the ocean and Peniche came up on the map and with some quick looking, came across... More

We were heading to another place, but rather to stay to a 20 persons queue we decided to enter here. Dishes were unexpectedly tasty. We had Barnacle shells, grilled squids,shrimps and Fish.All was verry fresh and tasty. I love the bread and butter what they serve there. I do have one objection though.They serve you with sea food salad right... More

I arrived at the ridiculously early hour for Portugal of about 7.20pm for dinner at this restaurant. It is discreet, very unpretentious, very nice and run by an older couple as is often the case he. He looks after the front suff while she does the cooking. He was really helpful in making suggrestions and not pushing anything in particular... More

We went there as an alternative to another place that was closed and it turned out to be an excellent decision. Quality food that took a bit too be served, indicating how fresh everything is prepared but also that staff is underestimated since the restaurant had only about a third of us capacity occupied. I'd assume they have more people... More

There was a group of 8 of us and the restaurant suggested that for the main course they did a range of grilled fish between us. This worked very well and allowed us have some of perhaps four different fish. The waiter brought bread and three dishes including crab and sardine to spread while waiting for our starters. We had...

This restaurant is perhaps best well known for having taking several prices in gastronomic contests, national and international. Don't expect a Michelin star, but rather a sophisticate version of local dishes. Go, try and be surprised. Unfortunately the ambient is not the best as the restaurant is often empty, but don't be fooled by that.

I think the word "excellent" really defines the place. The food is elaborate and truly good, both in quality and in taste. It certainly deserves a repeat!
