“About as far from fun and glamour as a casino can get”
Review of Casino Estoril

Casino Estoril
Ranked #4 of 29 things to do in Estoril
Attraction details
Reviewed October 6, 2012

When Ian Fleming penned James Bond's Casino Royale in Estoril it was definitely not inspired by the relatively modern carbuncle that infests Estoril today. Cavernous, mostly vacant, cheap, nasty, smoky (smoking permitted) and hopeless are some of the least offensive descriptors. Table game lovers with any sense of taste and style avoid at all costs.

The casino itself is very impressive but the majority of people rushing to put bets on were all smoking and this was really off putting so my wife and I only stayed for half an hour. I thought there was a law against smoking inside public places throughout Europe and if there is why does'nt it apply here? Very disappointing!

We booked DianaTour from Lisbon. The flier advertise we would be seeing the casino in Estoril. What we didn't realize was the tour bus basically did a drive by. We had about 2 seconds to see the casino and the garden before it sped onto the freeway. From the outside, the casino looks nice lol

We not gamblers at all but went in for a look , interesting to see the goings on . However as someone who finds the average pub bandit hard to understand , i was totally bamboozled by the puggies in here, actually wanted to have 20 quids worth for a laugh but couldnt make head nor tail of these bad boys.Gambling population seemed mainly pensioners who should know better.

The casino is a large building but a lot of it is empty space. There are slot machines downstairs and other games upstairs. There are shows that happen downstairs at certain times. I think there is also a theater and a restaurant. Upstairs there is an art gallery with art for sale. Seemed like a waste of space. There is poker, blackjack and roulette. A few other games. I had fun playing blackjack and roulette and talking to others there. The blackjack tables were 5 euro minimum bet. I had a lot of fun and no question I would go back again if I was in Cascais or Lisbon.
