“so good - we went twice and would have gone again!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

It is like being in someone's sitting room. The lady owner is lovely and full of recommendations....
advice - don't go before 9pm as we were the only diners when we were there at 8pm..it took a while to fill up.
Food? The caesar salad was excellent (I am an expert in CS - I use it to benchmark how good a restaurant is) and my husband loved his meal so much he talked about it for 2 days. The fare is predominantly brazilian.

The only reason why we didn't go again is they are closed Sundays and Mondays.

“Great experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2012

Fantastic service (in perfect English) and very impressive food. We enjoyed rump steak, duck confit, shrimp tempura, and especially the petite gateau with ice cream. There are only about 10 tables, and when we arrived at 2000 we were the first to be seated, but the place filled up by the time we left. The Brazilian family who runs this restaurant really knows how to create a great experience. Really good bottle of wine, too, for 15 Euros. In total we paid about 70 Euros for wine, appetizer, dinner, and desert. Highly recommend.

“Lovely personal service and interesting menu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2012 via mobile

A hidden gem and lovely friendly service. Very tasty starters and Brazilian stew. Excellent wine, advised by our waitress. Worth looking out if you want to be slightly off the main drag.

“Fantastic steak!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2012

We loved the steak at Armazem. We went there one night and had to go back. the reason is simple: Excellent food, friendly staff and unique atmosphere. Extremely good value for money. Somewhere we recommend ot all visitors to Cascais.

“great food, easy going restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2012

sweet authentic restaurant with great food.. the brazilian owner and his wife are very laid back and friendly and serve you the best steaks u can imagine.. although portugal is well known about the fish, if you are bored of it, definatly go and eat some meat at this place.. a must go if u are tired of fish and tourists!
