“Enjoy being ripped off”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

Great views, great sea food but at outrageous prices and served by arrogant staff. There is much better value for money in CASCAIS.

“So special - our third visit.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

We love this restaurant. The building, the views, the fresh, wonderful fish and superb service. It has a particular charm which welcomes you. It is quite expensive, but in our opinion it is worth it for a memorable evening. Six of us there this time, everyone thought it was very special.

“Excellent location and food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

We enjoyed a team dinner at this restaurant. The seafood was amazing and the wait staff was very experienced and professional. The decor was a little dated and worn considering the prices of the meals. Some prices were quite shocking but we were still able to enjoy some fine seafood. The steamed clams and king crab legs were my favorites. The stuffed spider crab was unique and also very tasty. This is definitely a special occasion place that will cost you more than $100 per person.
