Visited this restaurant on 11/26/16 for a family lunch and will certainly go back in during my next trip to Lisbon. This is the "place" for those that live good seafood and great service. Hard to describe all the details that make Porto Santa Maria a memorable restaurant: reservation process, host smile, sped and quality of service, and amazing food.... More

Walking is a big part of my traveling. I decided to walk from Cascais to the Praia do Guincho and have lunch at the Porto Santa Maria. The walk is a good one, around 1 1/2 hours and mine took a little longer because I photographed on the way. I arrived early at the restaurant. It was mid day and... More

Seriously - this is fine dining at its best. Great first impression as we were received by the doorman and the restaurant manager. The food is as good as it gets, seafood, fish and meats - the skills of the chefs can only be appreciated one fork full at a time. The wine we had was an act of alchemy... More

We found this restaurant overlooking Guincho beach just driving around on a holiday in Sintra. All in our party would agree that this is one of the very best restaurants they have ever been to. The seafood was amazing and the service was exceptional. For those not familiar with buying seafood by weight (kg) you should be aware that prices... More

We hosted a business meal here for 8 of us, and it really was superb. The location at sunset was very impressive, but both the service of the staff and the quality of the food were equal to the location. Many thanks, thoroughly impressed.

Everything was perfect, starting from the welcome drink. The ocean view was amazing, food extraordinary, service was very professional. We took tasting menu. The shrimps and dorada baked in salt were amazing. Last but not least we were sitting next to Portuguese celebrity - soccer player. When you are in Lisbon or in Cascais area you need to go there...

This is a very good choice for seafood when in Cascais. All the seafood is very fresh. The setting is very nice overlooking the ocean. Very friendly staff who seems to have been around. The gambas al ajillo were very nice. The seafood rice was very tasty, I still prefer the spanish version because they use a more suitable variety... More
