On the seapromenade between Estoril and São João do Estoril. The food is vulgar but satisfactory. The price is reasonable. The service is unprofessional and unfriendly, probably due to having fewer waiters. Unfortunately when the wind blows the kitchen chimney smokes unpleasantly about customers. You find best places for dinner nearby.

Another very average restaurant in a setting that deserves much more. When will restaurant owners start making an effort ? Why has everything tend to be so mediocre ?

We took a walk in Estoril as Cascais was way too crowded and found an empty Bolina inviting us for lunch at noon. One hour and a great lunch later the seaside terras is filled with people. Great squid, nice gambas and a refreshing vinho verde.

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.
