Reviewed 28 June 2017

The bar we wanted has closed down. So called in here turned out Tuesday is fish day just arrived as the fish was being delivered can't get fresher than that. But be warned it quickly gets sold out and I can see why. We when for seam bream which was cooked to perfection and tasted great. Simply cooked on the grill served with salad and potatoes.

Great views across the river to Spain and simple freshly cooked food whats better.

Give it a go you won't regret it a true taste of the sea.

We experienced great service and food at this restaurant located close to the river. Although one may eat out the main action and tables are located on the first tow stories. The place was crammed with locals but we were served promptly.

The menu is limited but it delivers a superb offering. Three of us had barbecued chicken and one the barbecued black pork. We were greedy and also asked for a separate plate of sausages. On entering the restaurant we watched the gentleman in charge of the grill. He was intent on ensuring that the food was cooked properly.

Portions are large and accompanied by chips and salad. The house wine is very good. To say we were replete is an understatement

Simple food served well. Bliss

Wish I could review the food but never got a chance to taste it.
I have lived in Portugal and my husband is Portuguese and we have never experienced such bad service( there wasn't any) in any portuguese restaurant that we have visited. We arrived and found a vacant table where we were ignored for 15 minutes.My husband eventually got the attention of a waitress and gave our order. Bread and drinks arrived in 5 mins.25 mins later still no food. Asked one of the cooks where our food was and got the typical Portuguese shrug.Not the friendly one,the couldn't care less one.Looked at the kitchen and nothing was cooking!......walked out. Would give less than 1 star if I could. Ignored by staff who obviously knew we were waiting for food.
Don't bother with this place .Go round the corner to O Camane...served in 10 mins with everything and it was good food.

We were looking forward to a proper lunch but, while we waited at the table, we passed the cut-off point: so, it was a Toastie for us.
Not a lot of information coming from the waitress but, maybe, she was having a Bad Day; or her English was a lacking as my Portugese.
Anyway, the Green Wine was good, and we were ready for the water, on this hot day.
It was interesting to note that Spain was across the fiver (a natural boundary) with a lot of traffic passing up and down. It's 829 km long, so not to be sniffed at!
As to the restaurant, it could have been a little more welcoming, but the customers made up for it.
The toilets aren't the best; and could do with an upgrade.
Good value, though, at 7.50 Euro for the two of us.
