Food and service was okay I guess, but not very good. Starters were pretty good, but the main courses were greasy and overhyped by the waiter. John Bull steak was weak, just so chewy and their secret John Bull sauce isn't even good. Would not...More

Most of the adults ordered the John Bull steak and it was really tender and the sauce was gorgeous. We had a lovely evening and the service was excellent

We stopped for lunch in this sidewalk cafe and had a very good meal. The wait staff were very good as was the menu selection and the food.

We were invited by family friends to have lunch here; it was a hot day, but the personnel made it into a party - the food was great and worth the visit.

Just eating in the John Bull in Cascais. Drinking a lovely Vinho Verde wine. Had a lovely grilled Sea Bass and grilled Salmon. The waiter was very efficient and friendly. All in all a good experience.

Our waiter recommended the traditional grilled chicken dish and we were not disappointed. I normally do not eat chicken skin, but could not help myself, as it was so perfectly crunchy and tasty! Chicken can be boring....but not here. The French fries were perfectly cooked...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.
