“Perfume on the salad”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014

I have many good experiences with this restaurant, but the last one was really unpleasant. The salad was apparently sprayed with perfume by the taste and smell of it. We first notified the waiter early on that the radishes had an unpleasant smell and bitter taste of perfume and he exchanged the radishes and we continued eating, with a little skepticism. Late on we found more ingredients with perfume and I sent the salad out. The waiter offered me a sandwich for compensation. But when the bill came, both the salad and the sandwich was there, and the manager told me that I had eaten too much of the salad to get any compensation- I also had to pay for the compensated sandwich! So, food was nasty, service really bad and the feeling that we were looked upon as "cheaters". I will not set foot in this place again.

“Very good bakery and good service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2014

This place is an icon in Estoril, we come here very often for breakfast, the omelette that they prepare is the best that you can ask for it, the service is fast and the waiters are very attentive, meanwhile the prices are a quite expensive. For lunch you also can have a ( Bitoque ) tipical portuguese dish , meat with a fried egg on top, excellent dish to order.

“Best cakes and pastries in the area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2014

If you are looking to try Portuguese pastries this is the place to go. They have great "pastéis de nata" (traditional custard tarts) as well as lots of other great pastries and cakes. This is definitely better for breakfast and tea but they do serve lunch and although it is not cheap you can have a soup and a sandwich and it won't ruin your budget. They are always really busy on weekends so book a table if you don't want to wait. They only accept cash but there is an ATM machine right outside.

Rude, wild, antipatic owners of this restaurant made me never want to step in this restaurant anymore.

“Estoril's finest”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

This place is good on most things it does, whether it is cakes, pastries or lunch. It is not as pricey as one might think, and good value for money. Try the lemon merengue pai.
