We weren't sure we wanted to risk getting lost on the way Azenhas, so we almost stayed in Sintra for dinner because we'd already had a long travel day from the US. Boy, are we glad we went! The view is simply breathtaking. Perched on a cliff above the sea, seemingly in the middle of nowhere, is this restaurant with... More

This restaurant was recommended by our innkeeper. It did not disappoint. We took the waiter's recommendation and had incredible fish and local fare. Most importantly, our young children were treated amazingly by the staff, showing them the fresh fish tanks so we could enjoy our meal and the view.

The 25 minutes drive through scenic Sintra was well worth to reach the fresh fish restaurant with breath taking views. You choose your fresh fish to be grilled or salt baked on arrival. We had oysters as starter and salt baked Stone Bass. Good wines at reasonable prices. Service was friendly and efficient and you can linger at your cliff... More

Possibly one of the best meals I've ever had. Our waiter brought that mornings catch to the table for us to choose. Expertly prepared and absolutely delicious. The water views were just mesmerizing. Enjoyed the whole experience.

This is not an easy restaurant to get to, but worth the effort. We ate on the rooftop terrace, under cover of a large retractable awning. All plates were shared among our group of 12, and included clams in white wine-infused broth, grouper, octopus and crab. Beer was ice cold, and we enjoyed the company of "dingo", the owner's cattle... More

I ate here with a group on a wine tasting trip. The food was fantastic, lovely fresh shellfish and sea food. The clams were stunning. We tried to go back but the place is booked out so remember to book in advance, parking is also a pain, but there is a public park a few minutes walk away (on the... More

The restaurant is sculptured right in the cliff that embraces the bight that one can enjoy during the meal time. Meaning: one can hardly expect a better spot to enjoy a delicious meal. I have tried octopus stew (in the "cataplana") with sweet-potatoes. The sauce tasted great, and the octopus was smooth and tender. The wine list is ok and,... More

This is where you want to go for a quiet and relaxing time for yourself, romantic meal with your partner, or even a long family lunch! Amazing sangria de espumante, the most fresh seafood you can ask for and best of all you feel like you're part of the landscape... The powerful waves just set the mood!

I've been there for a lot of times over the past fiove or more years and this is a restaurant in a amazing location and with a very good and complete menu, where grilled fresh fish is fantastic! Fine wine list and very good service. Price is high, but you can not expect such meal and location for free... TOP

Exclusiv enjoyment in Sea Food "place & plates" when sitting almost on the cliff between sky & sea and the entire session has a dedicated wine, food & local guide at your table.
