We had delicious lunch of soup and tuna toasts in this eclectic restaurant overlooking the Atlantic. Though service was a little spotty it was a perfect stop after our visit to Sintra.

The service was bad. The food is super expensive and the quality isn't the best. The salad that came with the burger wasn't fresh, at all. Don't recommend any hamburger - maybe try the nachos.

The grounds were absolutely stunning, with views to Guincho Beach. We just had time for a quick beer, but the menu included some Mexican favourites. I enjoyed visiting with the roaming cats too!
