When you don’t want to do ‘posh’ the kids just need to eat, you’ve had a fun filled, action packed day on the beach and you just want to be looked after by a hosting team that understands ‘family’ this is the place for you.
Aroma di Mare offers a very warm and relaxing environment, with plenty of outside and inside tables, all with good space around you.
The restaurant has plenty of parking outside and is a 2-minute drive from Villa Cascata to Olhos de Agua.
The outside terrace is surrounded by floral areas and each table has a large umbrella to shade you from that hot Portuguese sun.
Four of us went to Aroma Di Mare, many times.... and each time the service and care was consistently warm with a family feeling.
From the moment we entered, we were greeted by one of the team, with a big smile and a friendly welcome and each time, we sat down to a truly splendid fish supper.
The welcome from each of our hostess's was second to none, friendly, attentive, and with a light banter that had us relaxing in no time at all, for each fish course, they explained what we were being served.
All you can eat fish for 12 Euros
It was so good, we have eaten here 4 times on the most recent visit, and 3 times on a previous visit, and the standard of fare was exact every time, to us perfect.
When you think of Portuguese food, you probably immediately think of plates and plates of steaming, tasty fish. Heaps of salted COD (bacalhau) next to lovely canned sardines (sardinhas) with a side of pot-caught octopus (polvo,) and bounties of giant prawns (camarao). "Plenty" of fish. Well you have come to the right place to eat fish!
If you’re from the UK and love fish…to give you an idea, you may be lucky and buy your fish from an independent fish monger, we are stressing the quality point here… at Aroma Di Mare you will think you have gone to fish delight heaven; this is what we ate.. each! Whole Sea Bass, whole Sea Bream, Sardines, Red Mullett, Dourada, whole Red Snapper, Dover Sole, plates of Squid, it just kept coming…we estimated we must of eaten £200.00 of fish each, incredible…
The grilled fish is served with Portuguese buttered new potatos, tomato salad if you wish and we always go with the house Rose, (not Mateus), but something that always reminds us of Provence.
And after that our lovely hostess asked, ‘If we would like some more’.. and I asked for a cheeky chocolate mousse, and you will never believe it, they had made a batch 20 minutes before…
At 12 Euros all you can eat fish it is a total treat.
