“Stay away”
Reviewed September 15, 2012

This was recommended by the local Pousada, but our experience was very poor. Waited over an hour for our food; one meal was ridiculously overpriced and the food was tepid. Complaint was met with indifference and no attempt at redress of our dissatisfaction. We eat out a lot and are not prone to complain, but this place is no longer good, if it ever was. There is a really good place up the street - see my other review. Give this place a miss.

“Typical fish restaurant - not blown away”
Reviewed September 12, 2012 via mobile

We were recommended this by our hotel. It is situated on the same street as Beira Mar which I thought was better.
We shared a fish and seafood platter which was quite generous, but I thought the quality of the fish was not quite as good as at other places.
Service was generally good though.

“Overpriced and not as good as expected”
Reviewed September 9, 2012

It is always busy however the food is not better than much cheaper places in Cascais. Service was alright but we found the food to be disappointing given that it is a highly recommended place to eat. It is not well presented at all and the prices are too high for average food. We were charged 15 euros for the cheese that is plonked on your table-absolute rip-off!

“What a disappointment !!!”
Reviewed September 8, 2012

My husband and I had passed this restaurant on a number of occasions since our arrival to Cascais i had looked it up on Trip advisor and regardless of reviews had decided to give it a try. We didn't get very far when they seated us and placed olives, pâté, soft cheese, bread all which were priced individually €2.00 p.p approx. We questioned the waiter on whether these were complimentary items we were advised then of prices we felt this was underhand behavior but has been a regular fixture from other restaurants in Cascais. When I ordered a half bottle of wine rather than a bottle this again was questioned & was another issue...we had decided enough was enough we paid for what we had and left the service was terrible and not what you expect on holiday! I wouldnot recommend this restaurant

“Simple fresh fish, relatively inexpensive”
Reviewed August 25, 2012 via mobile

Dropped in after seeing a few good reviews, sea bream and lobster salad was simple but fresh. House white wine was surprisingly good and service ok.

Pretty quiet outside for lunch, but inside was pretty busy.

Worth a visit
