Description: Oba is up above the hustle and bustle of the main square in Cascais. It is a little tricky to get to, next to the Shabu Shabu Sushi and above the Sex Shop! But once you get up to the second floor of the building behind the Hotel Baia you will be rewarded with a beautiful space, great cocktails, fine food for all tastes including 14 vegetarian options. We will give you a warm welcome in a chic, understated alfresco environment. Oba!

Stumbled across this restaurant by accident, as it is up a couple of flights of stairs & hidden away. Had the best meal & best (by far) sangria we had had all holiday. Fab food, ultra friendly staff & met most lovely Dutch couple who worked in catering who had just finished the most amazing mixed fish dish for two.... More

We had a lovely meal at this rooftop restaurant. The main meals were excellent; I had monkfish and prawn with leek which came in a creamy sauce with rice and was very tasty. My son ordered octopus and an octopus duly arrived, sitting on potatoes and broccoli with a garlic oil sauce. A true holiday experience! Deserts were also good,... More

Very friendly staff. Not an extensive menu but not bad. Only a few people in and we sat on the terrace with views out to the sea and down into the old town. Very relaxing. My daughter had a steak, I had the sea bream, bottle of local white, 57.30€. Thought a bit expensive for what we got, but well... More

Great food, reasonably priced, very friendly service. (we were enticed in by the most friendly salesman on the street) Try and get a table on the open air rooftop. The views are great

Nice place, with outside terrace. Friendly staff willing to make a special group-price. Food OK, not special. The walk up is a bit strange, but once you're inside it's fine

We happened upon this restaurant as we wandered through the delightful seaside town of Cascais on a day trip from Lisbon. Drawn to the idea of a rooftop view on a hot day and the offer of a very reasonably priced menu which included a drink and a coffee, we climbed the stairs. The service was a treat and the... More

I did not expect any special but the result was just excellent in terms of food and service also. You must know the situation when... More

I am surprise that this restaurant has such a high rating. We went there in March, so quite out of season and maybe they have a trainee not a proper chef cooking that night, I don't know. Tempted by vegetarian choice we went there and get some starters: stuffed courgette and stuffed mushroom. Not bad, too salty but tasty, although... More

Simply superb food, ambiance and service but I am so sick of the darn 'greeters' who hustle people into their restaurants. Just put the menu at street level and let me read it without your chatter. Friendly and funny 'greeters', not knocking the persons, just truly sick of them being in my face every place. I honestly have not been... More
