I had swordfish and my wife the pork steaks . My fish came as a normal piece instead of the slice which I am used to. However, it was very tasty but the bones made eating mouthfuls quite difficult. My wife's pork was declared very good if a little dry. The overall experience, however, was good with quick and efficient... More

We have visited here for lunch a few times over the last couple of years and have always found the food to be outstanding quality, and the staff really lovely and helpful. The price is very competitive too. We had a three course meal (two people) and a half bottle of wine each and it amounted to just over €70... More

Great place to sit by the ocean and have a very good fish and a tasty wine. Good and fast service! Not only for tourists, many locals go there.

Fresh seafood well cooked and seasoned we stopped here for lunch walking from Cascais to Estoril. Waiters were fast and efficient, local wines good quality and value, the restaurant inside was a little shabby. though.

Esplanade overlooking the sea, far enough away from the beaches of Tamariz and Poça, with excellent, unpretentious food all year round. Fish is fresh and deliciously prepared, but very, very pricey. Otherwise, prices are relatively inexpensive.

we had a lovely time at the restaurant Bolina with fresh and honest fish out from the sea on our plates - the seatings and tables are new and staff is as ever kind. the view is great and brings you down from the rush of the shopping day. so, if somebody writes negative comments, they really have no understanding...

I come here a couple of times every year. I take a walk from Praia do Azarujinha in Sao Joao do Estoril to lunch at Bolina or sometimes I come here for dinner on the way back on my walk from Cascais to Praia do Azarujinha. The service is always very good as well as the food! And the view... More

This really pleasent restaurant, cant reach culinary heights, but it was alway great value and friendly, and owner run. The menu was limited but my wife who loves fresh fish loved her meals there. Staff were friendly and service quick. View is fab. What more can you want.
