“A disappointment”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2013 via mobile

Hemingway is held in high esteem by trip advisor contributors. I really don't know why. We had a rather dissapointing evening there. The place itself is a glass cage situated in the ugly concrete marina. We suffered both from heat, from the sun glaring in our eyes and from the wind. The service was obseqiuos, pretentious and clumsy. The menu is small, which is usually a good sign, not here, it was simply small and uninteresting. The food we ate was expensive, aspiring to be fancy and simply not very good. The waiter's pretensious mumbling of the ingredients just made the whole thing embarrassing, so did the foul carrot puree which they had the temerity to call an amuse bouche. The whole experience left us with a bad aftertaste and 120 Euro poorer for it.

“Good food but over priced”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2013

Food and service were very good but felt it was rather expensive. We had a scallop starter which literally was one sliced thinly with dressing very disappointing, however the rest of our meal was good.

“Best meal in Portugal.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2013

After spending time in Porto, Cascais, and Lisbon, this restaurant was a favorite. The food and wine were excellent, and the service was the same. The husband and wife owners made us feel right at home, and deliver on all of the food and wine recommendations. I would expect to pay double the price for the level of service and quality we received. We would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone.

“Best Dining Experience in all of Portugal!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2013

This was our BEST dining experience in all of Portugal! If you are in a hurry, this is not the restaurant for you. Be prepared to take some time, relax and enjoy. We finally perfected the 3 hour dinner here! The staff goes out of their way to make sure that you are comfortable and have everything you need or want while always wearing a smile. They are a superb reflection on the restaurateur. We were given a short lesson on Portuguese wines and the differences in the regions from the proprietor who also served as our sommelier. The location of the restaurant is in the Cascais Marina and the view is spectacular. By the time we finished our evening, we felt like family. If you are lucky enough to find yourself in Cascais, a visit to Hemingway should definitely be at the top of your list!

“Michelin star quality”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2013

We have visited this restaurant June 30th.
I fully agree the comments I have read on Trip advisor. This is a great place. We have visited many restaurants in Belgium, many of them with Michelin stars or good Gault & Millaut rating. Hemingway can stand the comparison. Food of extremely good quality, not expensive,98€ for 2+1 persons. Nice location and very good service.
To summarize: book this restaurant when you visit Cascais, we haven't found better. A must try location.
