Had the great opportunity to have dinner at this fantastic restaurant on new year eve. The place is 10 minutes with taxi from Cascais. It is located on the beach of the Atlantic Ocean. The building might not be the most romantic but the service and the food is fantastic. At our arrival we were offered to different tables, one... More

The nice seaview and the beach cottage ambiente is still there, but some changes aren't positive. No more allinclusive menu (3 different set menus 75/85/120, all without wine just "coffee" is in this deal), before the allinclusive menu was 98 for 2 persons, which was ok. The stuffed sapateira-crab was nice, the fish in saltcrust was ok..... but nothing to... More

Nice location with beach view, great food and excellent service. Don't forget to order the "fish in the salt" (peixe no sal).

We had dinner at this restaurant this evening. We decided to go for one of their three fixed menus. The starters, some sort of fish dumplings, were soaked in oil and seemed to have been reheated several times. The first course came a few minutes after the fish dumplings were put on the table. Everything was on fast forward from... More

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
