By the signs displayed on the door, this restaurant has appeared frequently in a well known French language backpackers guide, and there is a lot to like about it. The location is excellent with views of a cove, the lighthouse and some historic buildings. The staff are super friendly, and the service was good. The Cod fish cakes we had... More

Great location just down the road from the Hotel Farol and Grande Real Villa Italia before you reach the Citadel. We were disconcerted to find it closed on two successive evenings when the notice said it was open from 1000 until 2200 but dropped in for a drink and ice cream the following day at lunchtime. Food looked delicious and... More

We've enjoyed many grilled seafood lunches here. The view never gets old. The red sangria was terrific.

I would have thought this location came at a premium when paying the bill, but it was very reasonable, service was prompt and efficient (the waitress spoke at least 4 languages, that we could hear), and the fish was fresh. The waitress was honest to tell us which were fresh and which were frozen. The view is something else. The... More

Just outside of town past the fort overlooking the sea. Outside tables and a covered area. Small sandy area just below the terrace. Good selection of fish and meat on display. Cooked over charcoal to order. Good service.

cheap and good over looking the sea. Certainly one of the best restaurants in Cascais as others look overpriced

We had an outstanding fresh fish dinner, prepared wright before us. Fish was amazing and the staff was so friendly. Restaurant is on the water and has an amazing view. Tables are plastic, but I think that helps to keep the prices down.

Casual dining in a relaxed atmosphere overlooking the ocean. Friendly staff offering the best fish Cascais has to offer! Grilled shrimp to die for and followed by Sea Bass a WOW!

We came on the train for the day and had previously looked up for places to eat, didn't manage to find any so by chance came down the stairs and liked the situation. We ordered cheese and olives followed by grilled salmon and fish kebab. The starters were good and the local cheese the first we had tried, too much... More
