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.

Went there once again and did not disappoint. Is expensive but the seafood is very fresh. The service is friendly. We had to wait for the restaurant to open for dinner (7.30) which can be a bit late for some... But we wait at the esplanade with some cocktails. Recommend

Excellent moment in this restaurant beautifully placed next to the sea. This restaurant allies decoration and space, with the famous very good portuguese service, and an excellent food! I definitely highlight the service and quality of the food.

I arranged dinner here with a large group of friends who were staying at Hotel Senhora da Guia, directly across the road. As it was their first time in Portugal, I hoped for somewhere that shwcased the best of Portugal. Furnas didn't disappoint - the sea views are amazing (it's worth arriving early to have pre dinner drinks on the... More

The place was buzzing on Friday night with people being turned away. We were lucky to get an early walk-in for 4. The staff were friendly and looked after the kids well. The views from the terrace are fantastic and it's a great place to watch the sun go down. Good choice of wines and a reasonably comprehensive menu at... More
