O Calhetas

O Calhetas Review

This fantastic fish restaurant is at the far end of the beach at Ponta da Calheta. There's a smart, minimalist interior, or you can dine on a sun terrace. The fresh fish of the day is always good, or try the giant spicy prawns, amĂȘijoas (cockles), seafood spaghetti, or caldeirada (fish stew). There's a free shuttle to and from town, or you can walk back in a couple of hours straight down the beach; it's safe at night. There's also a snack bar open all day for drinks and lighter fare.
