A Barca Tranquitanas

Next to Entrada da Barca and in the vicinity of Zambujeira do Mar, with a beautiful panorama open to the Atlantic waves, is the cosy restaurant Barca Tranquitanas where the ocean is the protagonist. Located right by the fishing harbour, the fish and shellfish it serves are always fresh and caught locally.

ere you will find fresh, mouth watering flavours. Start your meal with an appetizer such as a portion of fried octopus, dog-whelk salad or fish soup, a special soup with a secret seasoning that you’ll love. For the main dish you may opt for cuttlefish Barca style, pompano steaks or "caldeirada" (fish stew) fisherman’s style. But since the whelks are one of the house specialties, don’t pass up the chance to have the bean stew made with this mollusc . For the meat lovers the traditional "migas" with pork or the sirloin fried in olive oil are simply irresistible. To finish off this sea of delicacies, a chocolate cake with walnuts or the original and now famous Vinegar Sweet . And of course don’t forget the excellent wine list.

In a natural environment with construction and decorations made with wood, take advantage of the traditional and captivating fishing activities, taking the opportunity to go down to the fishing harbour and watch the boats arriving with their daily catch. Amongst other things you can learn how to clean the fish from those in the know.

The nearby village of Zambujeira do Mar is worth a visit and on all sides the beaches and the stunning coastline are reasons to stay for a while in this Magic Alentejo!
