Excellent food, service, views

Arroz com mariscos is even better than it was 10 years ago. Ask for coentros (cilantro) and piri-piri to accompany. Nice ambiance and attentive wait staff, not to mention over the top views of Guincho beach. Along w/its neighbour Puerto da Santa Maria, these are musts for seafood fans

Delicious sea food, great service and fantastic view! These are the reasons you should visit! One of the best restaurants at the area. Would definitely recommend! It is more expensive than average places but it is worth visiting. Love it!

Impressive when you arrive and all in all, it's a quality restaurant. The issue for us was that the spoken English was bad, and we were offered the fish immediately and not talked through the other seafood options. Maybe they needed to finish the remaining fish as it was passed 3 pm on a Sunday...Wanted desert but unfortunately there was... More

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 beautiful and really nice

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
