Not a bad restaurant for a quick visit. Substantial rather than very tasty. Busy but service was still efficient and fast. Enjoyed our beers and meal

The place is what we can call a tourist trap. Service quality was really poor. They have a guy in his 40s/50s that stays outside who is really rude. He was even arguing with a younger waiter outside the restaurant in front of the customers....More

We had dinner here a couple of nights. One thing I would say is that the menu isn't huge, they don't have as much variety as other places nearby. I had lasagne both times and it was tasty but nothing special. My husband had roast...More

Just had the misfortune of eating here. Chicken salad was more lettuce with chicken bits. Cannot believe that they have been going since 1967 serving this poor quality food. Teach us to eat at a tourist trap!

Place in the centre of cascais. They serve good food at a fair price. The mixed grill is highly recommended. What I did not like was the fact that customers were allowed to smoke inside.

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.
