It was during the 1960's that Maruxa originally opened a small marine related shop and bar. Jaime,her husband,returned from emigration and in 1974 decided to open Restaurante O Peirao,in a friendly house with traditional food using recipes from their parents and grandparents.Their sons Carlos and Jaime are now in charge to recieve the clients who keep coming back with the same hospitality to that when the restaurant first opened more than two decades ago.
