Reviewed November 24, 2012

Unique environment, where you will feel cozy and relaxed. Magnificent view during daylight and chilled ambiance during the night. Perfect location for a friends gathering.

“Great ambiance, great views, great mohitos!”
Reviewed July 28, 2012

We had nachos and cocktails here - but would go back for more as everything was top notch and the view just amazing. A wonderful, quirky converted windmill ideal for lunch, evening drinks, coffees or a family brunch. Not the cheapest by Portuguese standards, but for the location priced perfectly reasonably. Quiet on a July weekday evening.

“Great views, limited menu”
Reviewed July 14, 2012

This is a favorite spot for the views! Thelocation can't be beat. Cocktails can be enjoyed overlooking Guincho and the Caiparinhas are yummy. The menu is very limited and unimaginative, but the club sandwich is a simple, pleasing item. Unfortunately, roaming cats abound, and we visited one evening while the waiter fed them in front of us, actually right on a ledge behind our heads. Inside tables are tired and a bit shabby. I love to imagine what this place could be turned into with some TLC.

“Utterly charming place for snacks and drinks”
Reviewed March 1, 2012

I went with a group of friends on a Sunday morning for a nice brunch, and we loved it. The chips and salsa were not exactly Mexican food quality, but the omelettes and smoked salmon and ice cream shakes were really delicious.

But the real reason to go here? It is a WINDMILL. And it has a huge cavern of rooms, indoors and outdoors, surrounded by wild vegetation and amazing views. It was one of the most enjoyable brunches I have had in Portugal.

Tip: it gets crowded very very quickly on weekends, so get there before it opens at noon if you want to get a choice table. Also, no cards are accepted, so bring cash.
