Great afternoon lunch after a trip at Cabo da Roca

After a hike down to the seaside level at Cabo da Roca we stopped for lunch here ( ~ 16:00) - they were still serving lunch so I had the "lulas na tela" (I'm spelling it wrong) which was excellent. All the others party members also got excellent dishes (the squid looked yummy). The place was not... read more

It is a place where you eat badly. In addition to being bad, it is expensive. I ate ribs that was barely cooked, which was accompanied by a greasy fries and a slice of lemon. I think it is a place for tourists. I have great pride in our food, but would never recommend this place to anyone my friend.... More

I was really (really) surprised with the wonderful taste of their "bacalhau na telha" - codfish with cornbread in the tile! Don't miss this one if you go there! Apart from this, their fish is really fresh and tasty! You can see the cooker grill your fish in the charcoal griller trough the window at the entrance! Wonderful food with... More

Recommendstion - main dish; codfish - served in traditional style with potatoe; seafood pasta; both delicious; huge portion, better to offer only one main dish and share between 2 pers. Service really good.

Stopped here on the way from Sintra. Very good grilled meat and tasty fish. Family run but quite big. Charcoal grilled stuff = very good.

The best seafood I've tasted in Portugal. Very friendly and kind staff. Reasonable prices. Family business run by a father and son. Difficult to reach from Lisbon without a car, but definitely worth it.

After seeing the most perfect sunset at Cabo da Roca, we were heading back towards Cascais when we saw this little restaurant on the corner in this tiny little town. We decided to stop and try it out. The menu was in English as well as Portuguese, the waiter spoke English well so he could understand our wishes. The ambiance... More
