4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Food was very good and view was spectacular. Service was great at the beginning until the waiter decided to have a complete conversation with clients at another table. We waited over 30 minutes before realizing he had left and the check was brought to us by a cleaning staff... Very disappointing...

this restaurant has a breathtaking view on the ocean: you can choose between being inside with nice sea decoration, on the veranda or on the terrace, depending on the weather. the food is awasome: typical, original and very well served. very good fish direct from the sea, cataplanas of Octopusy, risottos... make a reservation: it's pretty full all the time.

What a wonderful place to watch the sunset whilst eating fantastic food. A fantastic atmosphere, fantastic views and great food made dinner unforgettable. A group of 12 of us were catered for expertly by the staff. Try the Grouper Cataplanas!

This is a great fish restaurant located right above a beautiful beach. Come early and enjoy a drink on the sand and the beautiful coastal setting. The food is perfect, wine list is great and the service is excellent. You cannot miss here. Book a table outside or near the window for a view. Reservations are required.

This is one of my wife’s favorite restaurants in Portugal. The setting plays a big part on this: in the cliffs, facing west right over the Atlantic. (If you been good in life, you will be presented with one of those sun sets you will never forget!) But this place is a bit more than just its location: the food... More

I recommend booking, we didn't and the waiter managed to squeeze us in on the balcony but I wouldn't rely on that. Had the seafood Cataplana, which was amazing! Perfect end to a day surfing.

The food was good. We had a typical portugal fish (cataplana) with octopus and dessert for about 34€ each (not cheap but worth the treat) The best thing was the views right to the ocean, the beach and the natural swimming pool just underneath. Totally recommended.

We had a lovely drive up the coast from Cascais to visit this restaurant for lunch. The setting in the cliff face above a beautiful sandy cove is wonderful. The seafood selection is one of the best, all simply cooked to perfection. The service was excellent - how better to spend an afternoon at the beach.

We ate in the restaurant after enjoying the afternoon at the beach and swimming in the pool situated right under the restaurant. The food was excellent and the view was gorgeous. Such an unusual and magnificent location for a restaurant, right on the ocean. We will go back if we get the chance!

Visited to have s drink and see if we'd like to eat there in the evening. Were told to sit outside by one waiter, then the next told us we couldn't sit there as the table was booked for later. Mind you we were already unimpressed by the smoking indoors and the used nappy on the floor by the table... More
