Both in Porto or Lisbon, i came across with good food and service and in rare occasions the extreme opposite. Refugio de Roca is qualified to be my best experience ever in this country. From the octopus to the squid and ending in the friendly...staff, this restaurant features a very authentic decoration, where you feel that you want to take a bite from the menu to the atmosphere.More

Food was really bad,especially the pasta dish is one of the worst i ever had. Only appetizers were ok. Prices to high for what you get. Service was good and also the Atmosphere is great. Would only recommend if you are really hungry and dont...have another option... disappointed....More

Friendly staff and good service but food is rather expensive and not very special. We had the cataplana which was more like a fish stroganoff. Nothing like other cataplanas we have had in portugal. Rather disappointing

My best gastronomical experience this year! A rainy day in October got us to this unknown town near the most occodental point of continental europe.. and we were blown away by the phenomenal food we found here. I ordered a fish soup full of flavors...and with a small spicy kick and then the winner dish.. grilled dried cod fish with broccoli and boiled potatoes.. so simple.. so delicious. The best piece of fish I've eaten in years. Then I had a Molotof desert which is foamy, creamy sweet.. by far my best restaurant experience this year. I really recommend it.More

Our guide brought us to the restaurant for lunch and it was amazing. We had probably the best seafood soup ever! Large pieces of fish, mussels, shrimp and a broth that was thick and flavorful. Equally amazing was the grilled octopus that was the most...tender we have ever had from head to tentacle.More

Took my partner on a multi-stop roadtrip in Portugal (where I am from) so he could discover our wonderful country. We spent a couple of days in the Colares area and had a lovely romantic meal at Refugio da Roca. Restaurant was calm, service was...quick but not rushed, friendly and professional. Food was fantastic (typical, real portuguese food, not touristy versions) and at a decent price! Definitely recommend. Thank you!More

Only one vegetarian option- a pasta with water sauce and over cooked vegetables. Fish mediocre, not as good as any other meals in Lisbon. Inflated prices. Would not recommend this restaurant.

Hungry and a bit weary after our trip to Sintra, we stopped at this quaint local seafood restaurant near the beach in the Sintra environs. Its just on the way to the lighthouse and the “Western Most Point of Europe” marker. Rustic old place the...same for decades had a warm ambience, some beautiful fresh caught fish in the display case and a very friendly staff. We were served a glass of the very tasty local white wine and had some very fresh shrimp salads with excellent local breads. Lunch for three was like $45. An awesome stop for a light bite or a full on meal. We watched some locals being served up a big dish tableside, and were wowed. Lots of culinary sophistication in a modest and unassuming package. Very highly recommended!More

Inspite waiting time of 40 minutes to get a table, was worth it. Dishes very carefully executed with quality ingredients. Waiters know how to take care of you and are very friendly.

My wife and I and two friends had lunch at the Refugio recently while visiting Cabo da Roca and it was outstanding. The meal started with some traditional Portuguese soup followed by sea bream, which we able to chose, with wonderful vegetables, local wine and...some excellent desserts. This is an amazing restaurant that far exceeded our expectations. This is one not to be missed if you're visiting this beautiful area of Portugal.More
