Only have 45 minutes to spare for late lunch. I asked the server if we will be done in 30 minutes he assured me we will. It was off peak around 2pm and few tables were occupied. It took them more than 30 minutes to...More

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

Quaint bar opened in 1967. Wide range of beers and other drinks. This is also a restaurant where you can get steaks and fish. Very good at reasonable price.

We stopped here on our Globus tour and we needed a place for a lunch stop. This little restaurant was down one of the side streets...not on the main drag, but one of the side "alleys." The food area was shaded and they took credit...More

My wife and I had dinner here. At first we were directed to the a table in the smoking section, but then were given a table upstairs in the non-smoking section. Tables are close together which made for good conversation with a couple from Denmark....More

There is so much choice in Cascais, it's overwhelming. However, there's a main square with lots of umbrella'd restaurants around its edge. We somehow "chose" John Bull even though it looks like it's trying to be an English pub. It's not ! It's really Portuguese....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.
