Sacas, situated near a small fishing harbour north of Zambujeira do Mar, is a restaurant with 25 years of experience, where fish constitutes the main staple of its menu. With a long ocean tradition this old fishermen’s tavern breathes authenticity.
restaurant highly prized by its clients, amongst its principal specialities are, bean stew with whelks; a fish stew with prawns and clams; fried sole with breadcrumbs; skate with coriander or the famous pompano fish steaks Ti Ana style. The fish comes directly from the place where it is auctioned, a few meters away from the restaurant, where it is bought according to tradition (the auctioneer starts at a high price and comes down until someone bids). Therefore, any type of fish one eats at Sacas is guaranteed to be fresh and of the highest quality. Here you can also find the famous meat dishes that define Alentejo cuisine and a good range of desserts and of course a wine list to compliment
Each meal is a journey into the history of these people, all of who are connected to the maritime routine. After being refreshed by the long list of flavours from the sea why not go down to the fishing harbour and see for yourself the reality of these lives, and to feel the appeal of fishing and the ocean. The beaches stretch as far as the the beautiful and lovely town of Zambujeira do Mar to which you can walk following along the footpath that starts near the restaurant, arriving at the centre of the town in just over 30 minutes.

Manuel Maria João, also known as Sacas- from the traditional sackcloth trousers- gave up the routine years ago and has dedicated himself since then to the great passions of his wife Ana Maria: delicacies and cooking. Ti Ana as she is known, guarantees the culinary tradition that comes from her family recipes. Today, accompanied by her daughter Sílvia, they have made this a truly welcoming family establishment.
