There are many restaurants to choose from, with many of them offering traditional Portuguese fare as well as a wide variety of fresh seafood. Dishes involving different preparations of codfish are plentiful, and the Cataplana styled dishes are well known in this region. Shellfish such as prawns, lobster, and crab tend to be very expensive, while fish is much more affordable. For a break from seafood, try the chicken piri-piri (roasted chicken with a sort of spicy sauce).

As a general rule, places near the beaches tend to offer average to downright bad quality food for 'touristy' prices, but as you go uphill the quality gets better. Unfortunately the touts outside most restaurants tend to be very pushy and will stand in your way and try to engage you in conversation about their menu/prices etc. This makes walking through the Old Town a real chore, especially in the evening.

* <eat name="A Ruina" alt="" address="Cais Herculano" directions="Fishermans Beach" lat="" long="" phone="+351 28 961 2094" tollfree="" email="" fax="" url="" hours="" price="">Superlative food, a little bit more expensive than the surrounding tourist traps but it's worth it. Very knowledgeable waiters, nice wine list and a killer view out over the ocean. The filet steak is stunning and they have a bottle of the real good stuff, 120 proof Aguardente de Medronhos that would make Hemingway proud and will put some serious hair on your chest. They might give you a glass if you ask nicely. </eat>
