We ate here several times and because of the extraordenary location we decided to have our informal wedding dinner there. Two weeks earlier we had a fantastic meal... the day we were there with with our guests the food left the kitchen bland as if the chef was out of salt and spices. Disapointed, certainly for the money who could have bought better for our guests. We never went back, although it is one of my favorite locations in cascais.

Thank Bearchef

This restaurant overlooks the sea and is most impressive to look at.

We arrived and were shown our table which was overlooking the sea. On the table was some bread, butter, a plate of shrimps and a tub of cheese. If you took a bit of all of these it would add over 30 euros to your bill. Be aware!!!!

This restaurant appeared on out night to have several large groups booked in. This included a group of over 50 people and this can be quite noisy. I ordered Sardines for my starter and they were very good. Between us we ordered the Shellfish platter which a good selection of fish on it but I was surprised by the number of boiled potatoes also in the platter. As there was a strong wind blowing we declined a sweet and coffee preferring to return to the Hotel where it was less windy and cold.

This restaurant was the most expensive we went to in the area and had we eaten the bread etc it would have been even more expensive. I think the restaurant is set up more for Corporate use than for us.

I believe there are better seafood restaurants in Cascais but not with as good a view.

The maitre''d didn't crack a smile, but the waiter was good and amusing. Lovely spot right on the waters edge. We obviously went for the seafood and were not disappointed. The lobster bisque was very good and reasonably priced. We had a large and very moist Turbot which was 55 euros per kg.... Slightly over priced for the area.....but worth it for the standard of cooking and location. A few tourists, but mostly locals, who stay in the large villas nearby. A Ferrari is not out of place in the Car Park. You really need a nice sunny day to get the best out of the place.

Visited with friends as the place came highly recommended. The place didn't disappoint in any way. The view, the service and all importantly, the food was top. We recommend eating the fish cooked in coarse sea salt. It was delicious. The atmosphere is great at night and the service was top class. Not the cheapest, but definitely worthwhile to celebrate a good occasion.

There's just nothing good to say about this place. Place - at night you can't see the ocean. There are many flies and smokers. The food was bad and swimming in fring oil. The waiters were nonresponsive and slow. Very little English. The defenition of OverPriced!!
