Places to Eat

Here are a few of our favourite places to eat and sample some of Sesimbra's finest cuisine. Fresh fish caught from daily fills the majority of menus, but don't neglect some of their meat dishes too!

Casa Mateus

Rated #1 on TripAdvisor, Casa Mateus sure does live up to expectation. The restaurant has a warming ambience, and has numerous dishes full of flavour, and the staff are very helpful.

Their Thai Green Curry and Portuguese Steak are ones to look out for. And when it comes to desert - don't be mistaken for the Basil and Strawberry pavlova ... it is incredible!

O Velho e o Mar

Located on the front row, O Velho e o Mar (translated into The Old Man and the Sea) is a traditional fish restaurant with numerous 'catches of the day'. 

Something a simple as a salmon or sea bream will be ample for dinner, or be more adventurous. Don't be afraid to ask the staff for a recommendation either, as they will be more than willing to help!

Restaurante Virgilinda

Don't be put off by their unappealing entrance, or the fact that they are located off the sea front. Virgilinda is one of our family favourites and they could not be more accommodating.

Why not try their Alentejo Pork and Clams or Veal Steaks with Mushrooms, alongside rice and chips - a very traditional Portuguese side! And when the bill arrives, be amazed at how affordable it is, considering how full you will feel!
