Can’t express just how much we loved our lunch here! We found it during an amble off the main roads and were lucky enough to get the last available table - the queue after we were seated demonstrated to us that this is a very...popular option. The food explains why! We ordered steak focaccias, similar smoked salmon sandwiches and a portion of fried mixed fish. All had an attention to detail and taste which has been unrivalled on our trip to Cascais. Delicious doesn’t come close! The tapas options flying out of the kitchen looked equally fabulous and we can’t wait to return to try them out. Accompanying drinks were perfectly cold and the suggested cocktail of the day was welcome. The staff manage to be friendly and attentive in an understandably and justifiably busy environment. A find. Thank you!More

Simple, unpretentious, incredible food, good wine list, superb service. Inside the decor is rustic or even better, sit on the (closed) Road outside. It's very reasonably priced...65 euros including a few tapas plates and a bottle of good quality wine (28 euros). Be prepared to...queue for a table but even though they were chokka full we only waited for 15 minutes. It's one of the few restaurants open on a Monday in Cascais. The black pork is the house speciality. The salads were extremely fresh and crispy .. gorgeous. It'd very difficult to find fault with the this restaurant.More

Very popular restaurant. You should try to book your tables. Otherwise, you might need to wait for 30-60 mins to get a seat for you. They have quite a short menu that contains tapas and Italian food. But the food is excellent! It is also...nice to sit outside if the weather is warm enough. A great feeling and good service!More

WOW I wanted to eat everything that came out of the kitchen! Presentation was artful and food delicious. Staff dealt with the crowded space and teeming numbers of customers in a pleasant and professional manner. My smoked salmon focaccia was sublime.
