This is the top one! Amazing food, great staff, great view, decor is spot on! Relaxed restaurant and you will always find the perfect wine. Monkfish rice dish/stew is just great! Great on a Sunday evening when is quiet after the lunchtime madness

Seafood restaurant overlooking the beach. Both the food and service are excellent. We had a large sea bass for a group of eight people which the waiter brought to the table before cooking. The price is a bit high but you get good value.

Along the breath taking Guincho road, from Cascais to Guincho, you will find plenty of restaurants were you can have some of the best seafood you can find, but all very expensive. This restaurant is, for me, the one with the best value for money. You can have fresh fish or seafood, and if you go there for dinner, by... More

INCREDIBLE! We had steamed clams and one of the signature dishes ... Seabass crusted in salt. When the salt was cracked off and served to us we both said it was the best fish have we ever had. Our waiter, Johnny was fabulous!!!!!!
