“Unwanted food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

Food at jackpot was ok but beware the 'complimentary ' starters. We arrived at the restaurants ordered a drink and were given a selection o pates, cheese and a shrimp dish. When the bill arrived we were charged a total of 19 euros inc cover charge. If food is put on your table that hasnt been ordered refuse it. It is not complimentary.

“home cooking charged at high price”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

waiter a bit cocky- aha- another gullible foreigners look which is off putting.
the usual rubbish arrives at the table whether u like or not. (bread and cheese, small commercial little pots of sardine pate, etc) cheapening. clams tasty, large and v fresh but far too much garlic slices. octopus with too much toping, homely and in general not much to say about it. if I ate that in a bistro or in a portuguese taverna in a small mountain village OK. But not in the centre of Estoril. Wine, undefined and expensive, had superb Douro white the day before elsewhere. Touristy looking desert, poorly presented. Service generally good, but waiters seem to snigger a lot, making me feel at unease or talked about (u cld just make out inglese, inglese). Expensive for some homely, granma style cooking and wishy washy wine. Wouldn't go back

“Food excellent, staff really kind and helpful.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

Staff really made the evening, it turned quite chilly and they lent me a blanket which then allowed me to take back to my hotel, which I returned the next day.
