Sentido do Mar is a very pleasant restaurant right on top of the paredão (boardwalk) of Costa de Caparica. So, as you're eating, you have an amazing view over the beaches, the surfers, and if the weather is good (which is a big portion of the year) you can even see the Palacio da Pena, kilometers away, on the other side of the river tagus.
In terms of food, as almost every restaurant in this area, I advise you to go for the fish. And here lies your taste: Sentido do Mar has a very good array of options in Sushi, with good sashimi of white fish, fresh and very tasty, but also offers you what you can get uniquely in Portugal: the grilled fish of the season (depending on the month and what fishermen caught). I already tasted both options and I'm divided. Both are very good, althought expect to pay a bit more than the average on the grilled fresh fish. If I was a tourist from another country, I would definitely go for the grill, as sushi you can have anywhere in the world. But both products are of very good quality, and you can sense that the restaurant does everything to maintain the freshness of the fish.
Also, if you have a hole for that, try some oysters from Setúbal as an entry. You wont regret it.
In general, this is a very good restaurant, with good fish. My only concerns is regarding the service, very distracted, and the price. But remember. You are two steps from the sea...

A large menu of sushi came as a surprise in this sea front cafe style restaurant. I'm no sushi eater but one of our group was. The sushi looked like beautiful jewels and apparently tasted great! One of us very much enjoyed Japanese seafood spaghetti! (Noodles to you and me). I had salmon (boring me) but it was beautiful, tasty and soft. The final dish chosen was entrecôte and it was lovely and tender.
Great food. Slightly difficult to locate the restaurant- the address is not recognised on sat nav. However with a patient passenger we eventually got there 20 minutes late. The only hesitation to give a 5 rating was service - lovely waiting staff but not on their toes.

Very good sushi and friendly staff! The atmosphere is a bit noisy, but still OK! It's definitely worth the 10min walk from the "center".

Excellent "fusion" cuisine restaurant with outstanding original sushis, scrumptious burgers (and also apparently delicious seafood but we stuck to sushis and burgers). Casually trendy atmosphere, and nice seaview, especially at sunset. Highly recommended!
