“Great meat and a fantastic view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

We visited Os Prazeres da Carne twice in September.
The view was what made us chose the restaurant. They are definitely meat experts. We had great barbequed filets (mushroom sauce and porto sauce) with a tasty potato gratin and vegetable. It was nice no to have the expected french fries.
They have a rather nice selection of wine as well.
On the dessert side the cheesecake and the crema catalan are recommended.
The only truly negative point was for us to be served with what is called "couvert": dips of vegetables and cheese with toast without being told how much they cost (we thought they were free as they were served to us automatically). count 2.50 euros for the dips and 5.50 for the cheese (!). If you can book a table outside and be there early to enjoy the sunset.

“Excellent food in a lovely location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012 via mobile

Visited on our last night in cascais. Interesting combination of salmon with blackberry sauce and black risotto which really was a good match. Charged €2.50 for cover but be careful if you have the cheese as this is an additional €5.50 which was a bit naughty. Still enjoyed the evening and the service was very good.

“Food with a view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

Definately worth a vist. Not the cheapest place in Cascais but the food that we had (three hungary adults) was very good - both the meat and the fish were good. service was attentive without being intrusive. Great view to the ocean too.

“Good meat, nice views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

Placed at Casa da Guia with great oceanic views, both the terrace and the indoor are really nice. Service is attentive and food is really nice, specially the Picanha. A little bit pricey comparing with other restaurants in Portugal, but always a nice place to go with the family.

“Best view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

Best view in cascais without a doubt. Very generous portions and nice meat, but if you've been spoilt with steak in London or new York these prices don't really reflect the quality of meat you might be used to. Good service. Very nice wine list. Overall very good
