We hired a driver to take us around Sintra and Cascais. We visited the Castles in Sintra and stopped here for lunch. This is an amazing fish restaurant, if you love fish. Possibly our best meal in Portugal.

We were taken here by our private tour guide. Two of us had the rice with seafood (lobster, shrimp and clams) and a third had the lobster curry. The rice dish was bland, a few pieces of lobster chunks, several pieces of shrimp, four tiny clams and a number of pieces of lobster body that would require picking tiny pieces... More

Second visit ,hopeing the food would be as good and more people dining. Both objectives achieved, but totally ripped of on the price of the fish.Charged by the kilo,my fish which was no bigger than normal when fillited,was €39.Absolute rip off. Completely ruined the otherwise nice dining experience.

A most wonderful dining experience. The fresh seafood, we had sole meunière, was presented in elegant French table service. With great wine recommended by the sommelier, this was the best lunch of our 3 week vacation. Highly recommend!!

The restaurant and a nice view and its very elegant with a great service. The "Peixe ao Sal" is very nice and we recommend it for sure. We recommend to book it in advance. The price is expensive but a good money for value.

THE most delicious fish ever. We were told that Bill Clinton ate there and then sent Hillary. The waiters were so impressed by Bill. He asked all the staff to come out to have their picture taken with him. Then he mailed each of them a copy of the photo. Besides the fish, all of the vegetables were delicious. Everything... More

Come here if you are looking for best quality fish in an elegant environment. Obviously at a high price though. Waiter will come with the daily fresh fish so you can pick the one you like. Choose the fish and choose the way you want it cooked. Keep some hunger for the desserts: local farofias are exellent too. Service is... More
