The Vinho Verde washes these delicious crustaceans down very satisfactorily. The service is exceptional. A...More

The freshest prawns and fish by far! We had an amazing lunch with great service. The only negative is how expensive the place is.

Any fisherman will tell you that fresh fish does not smell fishy, and the Fishmonger in Illovo is a prime example of a fresh fish establishment! The aromas are delicious - the smell of the sea with delicate sauces. My first choice for seafood in...More
