Went with a tour group to Cascais and had our choice of many places to go. This one just appealed to a group of us and we decided to eat outside on a nice sunny day. The menu was in a number of different languages...More

Good bar, good food at a reasonable price and good service with attentive staff. In the middle of the town with easy access. Would recommend a visit to eat or drink.

We went to John Bull at December 31, looking for a late lunch. The restaurant stays in a busy tourist area, being one of the few options available. A big fish dish for 2 (30 euros) was shared for 3 people with no problem. The...More

Great location in a square in the center of Cascais. 6 of us arrived in mid afternoon and were immediately seated at a prime location outside. Staff was very accommodating to move tables and seat 6 of us together. Leisurely lunch drinking wine in the...More

Lovely location in a square in the centre of Cascais but it appears that because of their prime location they pay little attention to food quality or service. The Spaghetti Napolitana (tomato sauce-what's to go wrong?!) was made with what appeared to be watered down...More

Right off the main street, tucked in a corner, a good tourist find and a good meal cooked locally. We enjoyed the wait staff, the wine, the food. What more could you ask. Tables are close together and you are sitting outside mostly, however they...More

While on a sight-seeing tour we took a break and stopped at the John Bull Restaurant. As you will find in Portugal, the restaurant staff will bring simple meal starters – a couvert. You may accept them or reject them as there is a small...More

Ate on the terrace in April 2011 and it was delicious. We shared a seafood rice (25euros) which we were told would feed two people. It was fantastic and easily the best paella we ate on our trip and would feed three people especially if you have bread and a starter. This was the best meal we had during our 3 weeks in Spain and Portugal. One of our party spilt a little sauce on her top and the waiter came to her aid immediately with a spray to fix her blouse. Fantastic service, setting, price. Wish I could eat there again.
