Excelent, delicious and Portuguese!

The restaurant is fancy, but is totally worth it. The fish is the most fresh I've ever tried and they serve it with no spines. We order one "Pargo a la portuguesa " which is in the oven with baked potatoes. It was delicious. We paid 20 euros per person. Really recommended, besides the views are... read more

Our waiter Eduardo did a fabulous job presenting fresh seafood options to our menu. The view is incredible. Make sure you make reservations and ask for a table in the window, even though there are no bad seats in the restaurant. There are plenty ocean views everywhere. The food was great. Fresh, taste really good. They made great recommendations about... More

Very very fresh fish, Pargo a la portuguesa tasted simply great, the price was expensive but the experience was worth it. Excelent service.

Ate lunch on a Saturday and was mesmerized by the view. It was a scene out of Count of Monte Cristo. Service was top notch and couldn't be improved. Most importantly, the food was amazing. Had the shrimp to start and seafood rice as a main. Lastly had the chocolate moose for desert along with a coffee.

This was our first dinner in Portugal and we were excited to be by the sea. The restaurant looked great as did the inside but the service was very slow and the waiter inattentive. Our fish was OK but it was at best an average experience. There are better places to go for dinner in Cascais I am sure

Very high price for low quality of dishes. Soups were terrible, as well as seafood rice or better said cooked rice with a soup. Only seabass in a salt was very good. But the price! Omg!

Me and my 27 colleagues had a late night dinner here in feb 2015. We had a lobster soup and some seashells and it was very nice. It was a nice atmosphere, good service and a nice view.

If you want to treat yourself and your family or go out for a business meeting come here. If price is not a problem for you. If find it extremely a good deal because quality and service are outstanding. We had seafood and that is my advice you will be satisfied. Highly recommend.
