This restaurant is a piece of the history of Lagoa de Santo André, the first place was on the dunes of the beach and its main customers were the local fishermen who docked their boats on the shore of the lagoon, at a time when the art of fishing with nets was the main source of income for the people who lived here. Today you can meet their grandson (who will be your waiter) and his mother, the house cook, who still keeps the traditional roots, such as fried eels or swordfish, in a new and modern space on the edge of the village of Costa de Santo André. This new place incorporates good taste in decoration, privileged with natural light in a wide and open space, where it is possible to find a good selection of Alentejo wines. In addition to a beautiful view of the lagoon and the nature reserve, you will have the choice of daily dishes, which as in the past, depend on the mood of the sea. Take a day trip to the lagoon or to the beach, enjoy the beautiful sunset and finish with a meal full of flavours and history.
Our suggestion: Paio de Porco Preto (starter) or Pork with "Tweezers" (traditional Alentejo dish)
