Booked to stay in Lisbon, we travelled to Cascais for my husband's birthday lunch. We were blessed with the weather and having booked well in advance, we secured a window table. The view is stunning! The menu is heavily slanted for fish, which you would expect for the name and location. We ordered the shellfish platter for two and it was ENORMOUS! Dressed crab, over a dozen large tiger prawns, spider crab legs, whelks and barnacles. The barnacles were a new menu item for us - someone actually looked at these revolting items clamped to a rock and thought...hmmm, they look tasty! Husband ate the lot! Then four large oysters on ice. After a short break, the hot items arrived. Clams in lemon, garlic and butter. Prawns in olive oil and garlic. Mussels with peppers and onions. The house wine, a good choice with such rich food, was just 12 Euros a bottle. We had two deserts and the usual pan and butter cover and the whole lot was under 60 Euros. How much would that cost in the UK? If you are in Lisbon, get the train from Cais de Sodre and go to this restaurant. If you are in Cascais...you are lucky to have this restaurant on your doorstep!

Very good restaurant, you must try the cataplana de marisco, one of the specialities of this restaurant. Sublime!
Also a great sea-view!

the restaurant was recommended by the pousada employees and we loved the view, must be gorgeous in great weather. Friendly waiters, fish menue for 13,99 - basically unlimited fish dishes and I have to say fresh and well cooked but basic cooking methods and not refined.
the fish is fresh but don't expect gourmet experiences. Good for a lunch but for a romantic or special occasion I am not sure (unless you are 18-25). good fresh fish if you are on a budget with friendly but not too attentive service.

Having booked this restaurant purely on past reviews, I can confirm that the staff are excellent, great customer service (we booked for 9 people, ended up with 16 and they accommodated us with no issues), great food and lovely views. All round an excellent restaurant and well worth the booking :-)
