Salted Sea Bream for the adults and good steaks for the kid all served with style and attentiveness in a location right by the sea made is a great meal, albeit expensive at about €230. We were given a table by the window and really enjoyed the treat. The sweet elderly man who valet parks your car at the entrance... More

Our first visit to this restaurant and definitivamente recommendable. Try the Seabass baked in salt crust, it was really really good. Not cheap, only the fish for 4 persons was 118€ but a great experience. Great wine list too, not to mention the view..!

Amazing selection of fresh fish and seafood, served with extreme quality and service. Had the clams "bulhao pato" which were good and the seabass baked in salt which was amazing. Prices very steep but in accordance with the nearby restaurants with similar service.

Recommended by our guide, we stopped by this beach side restaurant for lunch. We were not hungry and planned to order just soup and salad. However, when we entered the restaurant and saw the seafood array, we changed our mind. It was a beautiful restaurant with great ambience. We came on a Sunday and it seemed that all people around...

I had a seafood basket with lobster and other fishes, they were prepared simply but amazing. Even if we arrived a bit later than the closing time, we were still served and treated very well by the staff! Perfect food and great location!

Had Sea Bass baked in salt. Try it! Good service and nice setting by the sea. Prices accordingly. We will certainly come back soon.

My guide and I had a lunch stop at this restaurant while driving thru the Cascais region from Sintra. I was warned it was going to be expensive. I can't eat euros when Im hungry so obviously I want to see what the fame is all about. I was not disappointed. The fish selection was great and fresh and the... More

It is very sad for me to write this review, it is based on the past three dining experiences there. The staff is great, no problem there at all. However, the quality of sea food has declined over the past year or so. I am not alone sharing this opinion, as I brought a lot of friends in the culinary... More

The best fish and seafood we have ever eaten. And this was not all. The service is warm and polite. The atmosphe calm. Evrything perfect. Not to miss if you can afford it, because the perfection is quite expensive.

After years and years of avoiding this restaurant, mostly due to its fame of being immorally expensive, I finally decided to try it on our anniversary. Yes, it is expensive. But, it is quite good. The decoration is clean and classy, very good taste. The tables are far apart from each other, which is not common nowadays. The food selection... More
