On the beach. Extensive wine list. Quite good service, but because of too much staff, there were lack of coordination. Dissapointing Lobster Thermidor and desserts. Very good lamb.

Mid week business lunch. "Sapateira" served on top of toasts is probably the best starter you could have anywhere. After we had the famous fish "filetes" always make justice to its great reputation. All this in a sunny afternoon watching the waves hit the coast... can't get any better! Will be back whenever I can!

Walking the beach and stopped for lunch. Beautiful setting over looking the Atlantic. There were 4 of us. Food came one at a time with about 5 minutes between each meal. The 4th meal never arrived. The waiter was apologetic and blamed the chef. The food that arrived was adequate. Nothing special.

If weather nice make a reservation outside on the balcony right over the sea. Order the grilled sea food plattet with a good bottle of white wine and just unwind. Its about a half hour drive from Lisbon following the coast road. Well worth the distance. Respectable prices. Good service.

If you want the highest quality of local seafood - Monte Mar in Cascais is your place to go. Whilst it is a 35 min drive from Lisbon, it is worth it! As a tourist, such statement is well supported by looking at the big carpark where the locals from Lisbon park their cars, after having traveled that distance themselves,... More

Was there this year again, very good service, very good food and wine! A little too expensive this time since we let the waiter set the menu, but very fine...

Delicious fresh fish cooked by a great chef, flavorful and filled with the smell of spices Portuguese. Excellent desserts and wine. Expressive service and a breath of breeze from the ocean. Definitely recommend!
