Where to eat European food in Cascais: The Best Restaurants and Bars

August 29, 2019 Stefan Strunk

Find out what European restaurants to try in Cascais. A coastal town just 20 miles west of Lisbon, Cascais was once a small fishing village, but its idyllic scenery attracted the attention of artists, writers and expelled European nobility in the 20th century. Today, it still attracts high society, but all society comes in force to enjoy the gorgeous beaches and adventure options like sailing and surfing. The Conde de Castro Guimarães Museum, a former palace, is now open to the public and displays an impressive collection of art and artifacts.

We had the mixed fish plate for two. Which was enormous but lacked some quality and had various dried out elements, like the mussels. I’d be much happier with a smaller better quality plate. Wine was good. The service was charming. muchas gracias para su comentario, en el restaurante dices "richissimo" a frente del camarero y ahora en tripadvisor este comentario???otro dia ,otro cliente ,otra opinion......no va la pena agregar mas....

Reviewed By Carolinestockholm198

We made the reservation via messenger, fast and kind communication gave a good first impression. The place is located in the historical centre of Cascais, easily accessible via uber. Greeted upon arrival, served freshly baked bread, a delightful sausage and some nice hummus with that. I had the wagu sirloin, 58euros, but worth every cent! My mother had the Angus sirloin, also high quality meat. Beeing a Swede, I would have loved some sauce to go with the wonderful meat but you can't have it all. The chimichurri gives a great touch but honestly, the meat itself stands very well alone. House wine was excellent, both the red and the rose. Very friendly and attentive service. For meat lovers, this is the perfect place, I would certainly come back if I ever find myselfe in Cascais again! Highly recommended.

Had read the reviews about this place, and luckily managed to squeeze in without a reservation, it’s a superb restaurant ,with a cute outside area for pressings. We had lovely meals, all really tasty and full of flavour, quite big portions though which meant unfortunately we had no space for desert. Next time! Really enjoyed the wine and beer too. Thanks for a super evening, we will be back.restaurant,superreRestaurant ,Restaurant restaurantrestaurantrestaurant, ,lotsofcharacter, cute outside seating area. The restaurant was really busy, but still had excellent service, really impressed with our food, the only very minor point was that the meat and fish we ordered was undercooked, but when mentioned it was sent straight back and re-done for us, everything was perfect then

Not a big or unusual menu but plenty trip eat and well cooked.The staff are friendly and helpful.We went back another evening and they had the front all open which we found a little chilly but otherwise it was all good.

Excellent cuisine, combining quality fresh products, like fish from Portuguese rich waters, with the innovation one expects today. Warm nice atmosphere in a simple but elegant setting, a friendly service and a light creative approach reinventing the traditional flavours, all result in a perfect dinner.

Reviewed By soinic

Coming on a yearly basis to Estoril we first discovered lamassa in 2017 and really liked it...In Oct. 2019 we went twice and were disapointed because of plenty poor details :(Everybody knows that the restaurant is small (7 tables)...ok with that...but the interior looks really tired and some renovation/fresh painting should be done!Service isn't as professional and caring as it was when the owners husband was serving the many guests.They have a chalkboard with daily specials, but not all guests get shown it :(Dishes on the menu are not available anymore and you get told only after you want to order that "no more salmon raviolis" are served :(As starter we liked the grilled vegetables with melted cheese... but this time the cheese wasn't melted at all.... not recommended :(The vitello tonnato starter however was very good: tender veal in a creamy sauce :)The "ravioli tonno" were good as well as the "ravioli taleggio", good consistence, nice sauce and tasty :)Of course we like the pasta "al dente", but the "spaghetti gamberi" were definetly undercooked :( the shrimp sauce however was good.We told the waiter about our concerns, he walked away and we never got a feedback but nasty looks :(The cannolo sweet treat wasn't as the ones we know from Sicily. The "cream" inside wasn't tasty, had a weird consistence and were much too sweet :(Hopefully this review helps the potentiel guests to make their choice as well as the owners who could make some improvments!The restaurant is full each evening for the 2 services (7pm and 9pm) and this makes the owners think "we don't argue with success"?!

We booked through The Fork website and were seated at 18:30 although it was earlier than we would normally like to eat, we didn’t want to miss the opportunity as we had seen all the positive reviews.We were not disappointed, it is small but very cosy, the waiting on staff were friendly and helpful. The food was as expected; excellent. We had the nduja bruschetta and the beautiful truffle ravioli and a nice frozen almond and chocolate cake. The house red was very agreeable and after our coffees were given a complementary tot of port.People were on a waiting list outside, but we didn’t feel rushed. Excellent food and service, but book well in advance unless you don’t mind waiting outside with a drink.A place to definitely return. Superb.

Typical Portuguese Cuisine with a special touch, in a family environment. Close to the Casino and Estoril beaches. Specialities from octupus to pork cheeks, bacalhau and fresh tuna.

Reviewed By Tekniikka

Arrived as the first quests at 7pm. Had our orders in at 7.10. Two of us (party of 7) took starters. Other diners start coming at 7.30pm. The starers arrive at 7.50pm. Everything takes forever. First main courses arrive at 20.20pm. Or at least part of it; pork cheeks come but the mashed asparagus thingy still awaits. It arrives app. 10 minutes later. My girlfriend's veal loin is gray, blue rare at the best and very chewy. Might still have a pulse even? We send it back and they grill the all-ready cut steak pieces to done. Only my brother actually liked the his food. Floor manager comes to ask is everything ok? We explain the situation; nothing has really gone right and everything has taken forever. He just turns on his heels without saying a word. And by the looks of some of the other parties we weren't the only ones not enjoying the dinner. Like said, nothing went right and we really weren't even apologized until we had paid the bill. On the plus side there were toys so at least our groups 2 year old had a blast. By this experience alone, I would not recommend this one to anyone but given the rank at TripAdvisor it honestly can't be THIS bad?? And as Finns this review is saying alot...Hello Tekniikka:We are really sorry for the bad experience You had at TaskaLusa. We work hard everyday to be able to have the rank and reviews that We have and that I'm sure you've seen. We have been fortunate to be able to give different experiences, much more positive, as You can see at TheFork for example, that same night.We will look into what happened thoroughly and make sure we will not make the sames mistakes again.If You decide to visit us again, I'm sure We will be able to provide a completely different experience of Portuguese Cuisine and of our Restaurant.
