I have been to this restaurant twice because I absolutely love it! This restaurant is situated on the coast of Sintra, called Azenhas do Mar, meaning "mill wheels of the sea". This is a small and cozy restaurant with a breathtaking view to the sea. In fact it's extremely close to the sea. I have been there when the sun... More

We climbed up onto the cliff opposite the village of Azenhas Do Mar for sunset, which was worth every cold and windy step. The colours on the white-wash houses changed by the second. Then we walked back down, and into the restaurant, thinking it may be overpriced and touristy, but we were very pleasantly surprised. We had an amazing seat... More

I've been to this restaurant quite a few times over the years and I've followed its changes. Compared to the past, all is better now, the space, decoration, the service is more professional... all is better except for the food! Food quality has been decreasing and price increasing!! Even so, the view is so fabulous it's still worth a visit.... More

This restaurant is set up on a beautiful place at the coast! Waiters are very gentle and the food is terrific! I would recommend for sure if you are nearby Lisboa, Cascais and Sintra... Alzenhas do Mar and this restaurant are worth the visit!

We had dinner in this great restaurant after a tip from our local quinta (B&B) owner. It was about 20 minutes drive from Sintra in the Colares area. The restaurant has a spectacular location on a cliff directly at the sea side. The food (mainly fish) was superb. Try the cataplana for 2. Parking is no problem closeby.

what an incredible view over the ocean! while watching the sea hitting the rocks, we are presented with fresh seared tuna. Fast and smiley service. Only local products, and good knowledge of their resources.

Here, it's nice to take guests of the same three top reasons: The picturesque village, the quality of seafood & the sound & dizzying experience of Atlantic high waves smashing the high cliff next to your dining table! My top menu for 4 persons is the filled crab, boiled snails with coriander & grilled lobster with rice & salad to... More
