This is one of only a few restaurants at the rather quiet marina in Cascais. When we arrived on a Sunday evening for dinner, we were greeted by a lady who asked us with some concern if we had made a reservation and then she went off to check the book for our name. We had booked, so felt relieved... More

This is (or could be) an outstanding restaurant. They obviously aspire to it. The servers are well trained attentive and professional, as is the Sommelier. The food is wonderful. So, what could be wrong? There were six of us, we had booked and we arrived on time. We were seated. About 1/4 of seats were occupied. It was 7:45, it... More

Firstly the positives. Nice location and a very friendly attentive waiter with a great Cocktail list reasonably priced. However I'm not sure if this restaurant is trying to create an air of exclusivity but we tried to dine here on our first night in Cascais but they claimed they were fully booked (they clearly weren't). We made reservations a few... More

Now even better with the scenery renovation! It's a pity other cafés in the marine are a bit "abandoned" nowadays... Nice staff, great drinks and excellent food! You should try the brunch on Hemingway!

It is definitely a slow, savouring experience. From the pouring of the olive oil for the bread... The decor is enhanced by plants and we were lucky to have a view across the marina. We both started with fish/ shrimp soup, which was a delicious bisque. I had the organic veal with diced sautéed potatoes and 2 sauces, which were... More

We ate here twice during our 10 day vacation in Cascais. The food was very good and the maitre'd has excellent knowledge about the Portuguese wine. The wine prices are very reasonable, even the exclusive French Champagne were very reasonably priced. The food was tasty and I think the chef tries very hard to make it to the nouvelle cuisine...

I know this restaurant has had some mixed reviews but frankly we couldn't fault it. The service, food and wine were excellent, with the owner making a special effort to explain each of the wine and food parings to the table. I can understand how this may not always work if the restaurant is fully booked, so I would advise... More

The setting is perhaps a little too formal for the holiday crowd enjoying the Cascais beach and sun. The food is decidedly Michelin quality but the ambiance evinced a spirit at odds with the holiday goers frequenting the restaurant. The place will be much better suited and supported being slightly less pretentious and less expensive. The prices of most dishes... More

One of my favourites for some fine dining. Situated in the Marina area of Cascais. Just a pleasant ten minute walk from the centre, Very attentive service, and excellent food and good selection of good wines!
