We had ice cream here twice and it was not very good. When we went back a third time, since it was in a convenient location, we thought it would be smart to ask for a taste. When the owner said this was not possible, we left and went a few blocks to Santini where they readily offered tastes and it was the best we ever had. Also, ice cream patrons are not permitted to sit down.

We had two lovely dishes of pasta, small but tasty. We ordered garlic bread which when it arrived looked like it should have been provided as a 'free' appetiser as was just a very small bread roll cut into 4 slices! Over priced for the food but nice outside corner terrace on edge of the square.

Average food that could have been hotter,watch out for "extras" like bread,olives etc that are added to bill even if you did not order or eat them.

5 of us and a toddler went for a meal here on our first night in Cascais - it was awful. Spag Bol with no flavour at all so could not be eaten. Sardines that's were all dried up, prawns like rubber, pasta cold and pizzas were just ok - like how hard is it to get pizza wrong. We also ordered chips but the never arrived. We would have complained during the meal however no one came near our table to see if everything was ok with the food like normal restaurants so we waited till we were getting the meal to advise we would not be paying for the Spag Bol and chips we never received. The also charge €1 each for breadsticks that are on the table when u arrive. They did not apologise for the experience we had. All in all it was an awful meal and would advise against going here.

This was our last night in Cascais and we had an early flight the next morning so we wanted an earlier dinner. We spent the week enjoying fabulous meals served by charming and gracious restaurant staff. In spite of some reservations we decided to give this restaurant a try but when a surly young waitress arrived at our table it was immediately evident that she did not like her job and seemed to resent tourists. At this point we should have left but stayed as we were only going to split a pizza.
The pizza was, at best, mediocre and somewhat pricey.
The only saving grace was that the waitress was replaced by a cheerful waiter who helped make the meal bearable.
With so many great Cascais restaurant choices, we certainly cannot recommend this property.

Thank Ron and Penny J
