Like in almost all coastal areas in summer, parking near the Sesimbra beach is impossible, on the other hand I must admit that the premises on the beach front aren't my favorites because they are dedicated to tourists and there's usually a fixed tourist menu, but there is always an exception to the rule and in this case it was true. We entered a place located on the seafront, and the first joy was reading the menu. My family told me I looked like I had made a good choice. I ordered a seafood skewer almost a kilometer long, and had more than a dozen grilled shrimp. My daughter opted for the house steak: Grilled Sirloin with Port wine sauce and mushrooms. Everything was really delicious, but the best thing was the fried baby calamari. We saw them when they were brought to diners at the next table and we couldn't resist. So much so that despite being a fairly large portion, we had seconds. We didn't have room for dessert but they all looked really good, especially the homemade ice cream. If you pass through Sesimbra, choose this restaurant. you won't be disappointed.
We visited this restaurant thinking that it wouldn't be touristy since it was away from the beachfront..big mistake. It took a while to find it, it's at an intersection of the promenade and it's quite small with a barbecue terrace. Since it was quite hot we opted to eat inside the tiny place where there was AC. It just had 6 tables inside and they were all taken, so we had to sit in a corner next to the kitchen, something really uncomfortable due to the coming and going of waiters. As starters we ordered the shell gratin which certainly was scrumptious, then had the coral swordfish steak, which was has a nice with a shrimp and shellfish sauce. We also had grilled fish, and I would be lying if I said that the food wasn't good, but I found it too expensive for the dodgy place it was away from the tourist area.
