After a day of sight-seeing we found this restaurant by chance . Everything we experienced here was SUPERB! Beautiful venue, amazing food and excellent service . Waiter was funny and gave me the best wine suggestion! Unlike my previous experience at another restaurant called Cafe Nicola in Lisbon Portugal the day before.

Not that I've been to that many, but this was hands down one of the best meals I have had. The grilled octopus was cooked perfectly and both salt cod,dishes were wonderful, and I didn't expect that! The house red was great and the service perfect. We sat outside and the owner rigged up an awning to keep,off the sun.... More

Nice with pick up at hotel. Very nice atmosphere. Shrimps with garlic and a superb pato negro jamon. Nice Espetada pork just a bit dry, goat really juicy. Different but good.

Excellent fish and seafood restaurant in a tiny litlle village between Cascais and mega-touristy Cintra. Nice outside terrace in the September sunshine, nothing fancy, efficient staff and delicious selection of fishes. A real change from usual Portuguese food. Obviously known for the quality of its food, the place deserves a visit. Not a the cheap side but well worth it... More
