The seafood is fresh and beautifully prepared. The service is fair considering but this was the busy season. The views and setting are very nice. The prices are on the high side but it is a very nice experience.

Last time I ask the hotel to recommend a restaurant and still go to it although not on the top Tripadvisor list, the place is very nice, the people extremely nice, the ocean view is there, but the food, really Mc Donald is better. Really time to change your cook!

Went for dinner on a Friday night. A fantastic meal, great service and good atmosphere. We had the fish soup and mussels for starter followed by prawn & squid skewers and monkfish & prawn skewers. Absolutely fantastic.

It might not be the cheapest place but they definitely have the best seafood in the region! You can trust that everything here is fresh and you can even pick your fish before they cook it! I always go for "Amêijoas à Bulhão Pato" as a starter, simply delicious. I also love their "sangria" and their starters as well. The... More

This is the best place to eat crab in Cascais. Have tried in many other restaurants from cheaper to mere expensive and this is still my favourite. Of course any other dish is equally good but their crab is amazing!! Looking forward to go back!!

We read many positive reviews for this restaurant and we had had great expectations. We were very disappointed. The view from the terrace was wonderful, the waiters were not friendly and overworked. We had to wait 45 minutes before the first course arrived. When finally the main dish was served it was lukewarm and tasteless. The restaurant is overpriced, not... More

Couldn't pick the better place for our last dinner in Portugal. Cascais is a beautiful city, we were happy to discover it during the Lisbon - Porto vacation. Furnas Do Guincho was chosen by a friend, who is living in Cascais and obviously knows the best spots in town. We were craving tasty seafood and good Portuguese wine and we... More

Excellent sea front views though workers next door trying to enlarge the terrace and making a lot of noise. Prices are quite steep for seafood (though this may be a feature of the area) which makes you feel they put a 50% premium to lisbon for the view - seafood is fresh, chef receipe is good but not amazing to...

In July we went out eating at Restaurante Furnas do Guincho at Cascais. We ordered the paella with lagosta... It was delicious. Everything was superb: the ambiance, the server (a very friendly man), the beautiful terras with a magnificent seaview, the Caipirinha, the starters, the paella itself, the dessert.... It couldn't be better!!! Next time we surely will come back... More

Here for my mother's birthday and it didn't,t dissapoint, with a wonderful atmosphere,service and food at a price that is not too hefty. It has 2 Michelin recommendations 2013 + 2014 and in my opinion well worthy of a Michelin star or two.
