This place is speechless. It's the most spectacular place in Lisbon, or around Lisbon. It's worth going there, the spot is confortable, in Winter there's a fireplace for you inside, in sunny days, you have a large outside views, in the middle of the mountain with the Guincho beach in range, the orizon line, Cascais. It's a quiet place, for... More

Unique environment, where you will feel cozy and relaxed. Magnificent view during daylight and chilled ambiance during the night. Perfect location for a friends gathering.

We had nachos and cocktails here - but would go back for more as everything was top notch and the view just amazing. A wonderful, quirky converted windmill ideal for lunch, evening drinks, coffees or a family brunch. Not the cheapest by Portuguese standards, but for the location priced perfectly reasonably. Quiet on a July weekday evening.

This is a favorite spot for the views! Thelocation can't be beat. Cocktails can be enjoyed overlooking Guincho and the Caiparinhas are yummy. The menu is very limited and unimaginative, but the club sandwich is a simple, pleasing item. Unfortunately, roaming cats abound, and we visited one evening while the waiter fed them in front of us, actually right on... More

I went with a group of friends on a Sunday morning for a nice brunch, and we loved it. The chips and salsa were not exactly Mexican food quality, but the omelettes and smoked salmon and ice cream shakes were really delicious. But the real reason to go here? It is a WINDMILL. And it has a huge cavern of... More

If you enjoy a nice and quiet place to chill out a little bit while you enjoy a drink and a great view, this is the place. The decoration is very eclectic, there are always a lot of cats around and there's a great fireplace to warm up the environment during wintertime. They have a great apple pie and other... More

I've been going there for the last 10 years. Its kind of an old mill, where you can drink a tea, lunch or dinner. Its a cozy place, either in the summer or in the winter. Very peaceful and quiet, take a rest and free your mind. During weekends very often is full, but go there during the week and... More

We loved this place and went there twice when we stayed at Colina Flora Guesthouse just some km away. They have quite simple, but great tasting food and a relaxed atmosphere. They don't accept cards, so be sure to bring cash. We reccomend the mohitos!

Amazing view, peaceful & quiet spot. Good salads and natural fruit juices. The burguers could be better... Service is very friendly but on the slow side. I think prices are a bit high, but it is still reasonable
