The grounds were absolutely stunning, with views to Guincho Beach. We just had time for a quick beer, but the menu included some Mexican favourites. I enjoyed visiting with the roaming cats too!

Comparing with the alternatives this is a nice place but a "tourist trap" palin food, chips and busy staff. Only great thing is the physical place it is a fun layout.

Nice place to relax with the family with a nice landscape view. The decoration is warm. They have good drink list and good toasts.

Some of the greatest environment and views of Cabo da Roca area. The decoration is awesome with lots to find out. The food is good. Based on some Mexican themed food you can try the nachos and some burritos. The cocktails are great. A bit pricey, guess you also pay the location and view and decoration. Calm environment.

Got here in time for the sunset and walked around to snap some pics...the place goes on and on and has a deceivingly large seating capacity. The lighting and decor had a hippie-meets-aquatic vibe. Sprawled out on a chair at the table next to us was a cat, an un-neutered male cat to be exact. Except for a few stretches... More

We were going from Sintra to Cabo da Roca and stopped on the way at this restaurant to have lunch. I had a club sandwich with chicken and egg that was very tasty, it came with potato chips. The view from the restaurant on the bay far below is incredible, most of the tables are outside under trees so it... More

Beautiful place with amazing views. It's perfect either just for a coffee or to take a meal and during summer or winter time it's a fireplace inside)

A old favourite from when we used to live here, this place hasn't changed its style, menu or approach in 20 years and it still works. Delicious burgers in the secluded oasis of the seating areas overlooking the sea make for the perfect meal. Try the fresh lemonade, the banana splits, and the Greek salad too. Not high end, but...

Stuck out of the way in an old mill decorated with an exotic Latin American fair and spectacular views this place can be forgiven for not having a great menu and not accepting credit cards it's still a slice of heaven I return to in a regular basis
