Fodor's Review

Tour-bus crowds occasionally descend on this popular spot, located right next to the Dias Museum and Old Post Office Tree, but don't let that put you off. Justly renowned for its seafood—the oysters are extremely fresh and totally wild, not cultivated—it also has good general and vegetarian menus. Try a pizza, or something a bit more exotic, such as deep-fried Camembert coated in cashew nuts served with figs and drizzled with wild-forest-berry coulis, followed by skewered

tuna cubes in a curry-infused arugula-and-mango yogurt sauce. The inevitable ostrich is here, served up skewered with port-soaked, sun-dried apricots, caramelized onion jus, and savory rice. In summer sit outside on the shaded terrace or in the refurbished and stylish interior.
