Just a lovely place to enjoy a freshly cooked breakfast omelette, sandwich or snack. Everything is so very fresh and welcoming with the advantage of gorgeous views out over the sea. Service is always with a smile and just a lovely spot to relax. No...cards, so make sure you have cash.More

This cafe has a dozen or so tables, some inside and some outside, set slightly back from the waterfront but with a sea view. You get a friendly welcome from Regina, who is kind and fun. There is a nice breakfast, lunch and snacks menu,...strong on vegetarian and vegan options but with meat, poultry, fish and seafood as well. We had lunch here several times and tried the vegetable soup, huge and tasty toasties, salads, and perfectly cooked spaghetti with five kinds of mushrooms. We would have eaten here in the evenings too if it had been open! Recommended.More

We love Cantinho da Regina and we love Regina, the owner. Not only is the food incredible great toasted sandwiches called ‘tostas,’ fresh eggs, wonderful coffee, fresh juices, but, I now consider Regina part of my new Portuguese family. She always gave me a hug,...she gave me a cake for my birthday, and treated us like honored guests every time we went there for breakfast. We never went there for lunch or dinner, but the menu looks amazing for both. They, also, have vegan options. I cannot recommend this place highly enough. Go there a few times, and, even if you’re a tourist, you feel like you’re at home.More

Don’t miss this restaurant!! We loved our experience at Cantinha de Regina. It’s just off the Main Street but still has spectacular views of the ocean and beach. Regina is delightful, warm and so funny. She’s speaks English too! The food was absolutely delicious. We...had the clams and bread which were better than any I’ve had! She offers a wide variety of food including gluten free, vegetarian and vegan. We aren’t vegetarian but we did have her vegan dessert (lemon mousse?) which was melt in your mouth delicious. We ended up lingering there in the peaceful space just one street above the chaos of the busy Main Street while eating amazing food, laughing and enjoying the beautiful beach. I feel I have made a new friend in Regina. Our meal there made our day trip to Sesimbra so special. We will definitely be back!!More

Regina’s is the best spot in town! I had breakfast there every day and it was delicious, as well as having a beautiful view of the ocean and the sound of the waves to accompany you as you eat. More importantly, Regina is the sweetest...woman ever and made me feel so at home in a new place. Thank you for everything!More

What an unbelievable little beach place. We just got engaged and happened to stumble across this gem on one of our tours. Regina is an absolute darling of a human and presented us with the most perfect seashell to commemorate our special visit. The food...was homemade and absolutely delicious. We had the special toast clams spaghettis and clams castinho…the Sangria was out of this world as well. Overall, dining at Castinho da Regina was easily the best part of our day and if you ever find yourself in the Sesimbra beach area…Castinho da Regina is a MUST TRY!More

Not to be missed! Regina really cares about her business and it shows in the quality of the food and service. We had breakfast and lunch here and the food was outstanding, freshly prepared from local produce. The menu changes with daily specials, and also...caters for vegetarians- I still have fond memories of the the 5 mushroom pasta! The setting is also lovely and the prices are very reasonable. Regina is a lovely kind lady, full of fun, and will always try to make your stay special. We would love to return one day - thank you for the happy memories!More
