torremar (oeiras forte de sao juliao da barra)

name: torremar
type place: portuguese restaurant and grill
location: Avenida Marginal, Oeiras praia de torre (next to forte são Julião da barra)
tel: 214443079
price idea: less than 20 € (fish dishes can be more off course)
info: Good restaurant, excellent location. We had been here a twice before i started to do the blog during the summer months when you can sit outside on the large terrace. The view is very nice the saint Julian castle on one side and the sea and the yacht club on the other side. In the summer you can also enjoy de view of the sunbathing beauties. But we are here to talk about food. I guess without the location I would be less generous with the stars. It is not so perfect ! The meal is always more than acceptable but there is always a slide… this time we got cold fries and the açorda (a typical Portuguese bread mash try it it taste better than it sounds and looks had too much garlic but plenty shrimp) again not bad but not perfect ... Friendly service. You can call ahead to make reservations. Never tried the place for dinner I like it as a lunch place. What is the use to go to a place with a view when it is dark ? Lots of variety both in fish and meat dishes. Açorda and seafood rice dishes are a specialty. I liked the tuna with pepper sauce.
A meal with a view
