Very simple menu; buffet or buffet and meat. We had buffet and meat. It was a goodish buffet (for buffets..) lots of salads and veg. The meat part was also good (waiters come round with skewers of meat and slice you off some, and then you can also have a variety of fresh side dishes. You definitely need to be hungry (and to love meat) to go here.. I wish we hadn't had lunch! It was very busy and family friendly.

Our group of 5 had an enjoyable evening with excellent service. The food was delicious and reasonable. The meat variety was excellent. Opens at 7 p.m. for dinner so you don't have to wait around until late to eat.

I really love the variety of the buffet.. It had all you can imagine: really nice plates of meat, vegetables, rice, noodles.. and sushi! The sushi was really good, i guarantee that. All the food was terrific , so i couldn't help myself to get more and more. I have a vegan friend and he was really happy, because it could eat a lot of different plates, vegetarian plates, such was the variety. A really good place to go, and it's superb from group dinners. Invite all your friends and enjoy a great dinner altogether!

This restaurant is right in the heart of downtown Cascais so it's easy to find.

I have been here several times and the food and service are consistently good. The lunch menu is a bargain at 6.50 Euros for the buffet which is an all you can eat proposition. The cuisine has a Brazilian emphasis.

The buffet has a wonderful salad bar with dozens of vegetable and salad choices. The meat section goes from chicken to pork to beef to say nothing of the side dishes. Unlike many buffets, the meat is not all dried out. Then they have various cheeses and a nice variety of bread and rolls.

You can order the rodizio for 8.50 Euros. That is various kinds of grilled meat that just keeps coming until you give up plus the buffet. House wine is OK and inexpensive, but they have a nice wine list too.
It is a large place with lousy acoustics so the noise level can get up there when crowded.

Altogether you can have a wonderful lunch at affordable prices. Great spot for tourists.

Ideal place to eat for meat lovers! you have the choice to have the meat and or the buffet. The buffet it's self is a good feast with lots of choice from main meals to sides and salads if you are going with the meat then I would say don't fill up too much on the buffet! As this is an all you can eat you are free to dine all night the staff are very friendly and don't rush you along. The meat is served rare, but if you prefer your meat cooked more they will cook it more for you. You also have the choice of hot pineapple which is a great palate cleanser. The drinks are very reasonable a bottle of house wine will set you back €5 and is very nice. If you have room afterwards the puddings are lush, the portion sizes are enough for two! I highly recommend this restaurant! The Food is amazing and the staff are very friendly!! We keep going back!!
