“Refreshingly different”
Reviewed October 15, 2012 via mobile

We had only made time to pop in for an espresso and a beer late this afternoon, but now hope to visit again for longer before we have to leave Cascais and return home.

Welcoming, efficient, service - and the rooftop terrace is indeed a pleasant oasis in which to while away some time relaxing with refreshment.

There is also space to eat/drink under cover, plus the art and craft sales too.

Very pleasant.

“A real gem in Cascais”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

We discovered this little gem one evening as we walked around Cascais and went up to the rooftop area for a drink in the setting sun. The weather has been cloudy all day and whilst it wasn't cold it was a little breezy so we were offered lovely blankets to snuggle under whilst enjoying the fabulous white house wine with some delicious home cooked parmesan biscuits.
It is a gorgeous relaxed spot, with a cute art and sculpture gallery on the level below.
The owner & the lady who helped out there were fabulous, interesting and we enjoyed their company :)

“A cozy hidden place in Cascais!”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

My wife and myself went to this restaurant following the positive comments that I had read here and I was not dissapointed! The terrace is absolutely amazing and it's a great place where to have another view of Cascais! We did not have anything to eat but the food that I saw in the mid floor where the actual bar/restaurant is, looked really tasty and home made! We only had a couple of cold beers but they tasted great at the terrace! Definitely a place to go back!

“Totally wonderful Treat”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

Wow! We found this awesome place...we were walking through the streets of Cascais when I heard noise coming from the rooftops, we looked up and there were people have a great time drinking coffee..so we went in...we found a gorgous gallery of craft, sculpture and artwork, then a beautiful coffee bar with cakes, savoury food and beer wine and cocktails....such a chilled atmosphere when we headed up to the roof top...amazing chill out area of home made seating....we decided to go back in the evening to watch the sunset over a Mohitto and wine, watched the sun go down with candle light and music replacing the days hot sun!
You must try this place!

“Beautiful.”
Reviewed September 19, 2012 via mobile

Stumbled upon the rooftop bar sign while we were wandering through Cascais. Definitely worth visiting. If not for the beautiful shop and art pieces, then for the relaxing feel of the cosy rooftop bar. Amazing setting to have a drink. We had a home made lemonade and a home made piece of chocolate mousse pie which was delicious.
