An exclusive resort town long recognized for attracting royalty, Estoril lies less than 20 miles west of Lisbon and is probably best known for its casino. One of Europe’s largest, it was the inspiration for the first of Ian Fleming’s James Bond books, "Casino Royale." Estoril’s mild winters and warm sunny summers make it a perfect beach town, with one of the nicest, Praia do Tamariz, lying right next to the casino. So famous has Estoril become that the local coast is now called Costa do Estoril.

To be honest, besides my fondness for the town, I also couldn’t wait to go back to Cascais because of Santini. In short, they still have the best ice creams I’ve ever tried. I’d like to recommend a couple of flavors but they are all...MoreDear client, Thank you so much for your kind words and for the time you took to review your experience at Santini. If you need anything from us don't hesitate to ask! Kind Regards, Eduardo Santini

We ate in this restaurant after Reading the latest reviews.
We are very happy here. As we came very early the restaurant was empty when we arrived but filled during the evening.
The waiter was very friendly.
I had the entrecote with gorgonzola sauce, my girlfriend had the ravioli with spinach and ricotta. For starter we shared a Bruscetta. The waiter asked if we share it and brought it on to separate plates - very attentive.
My entrecote was huge, i couldn't eat it up though it was delicous very smooth, only thing to critizise is I ordered it medium rare and it came more like medium-well done.
The ravioli were good.
The plates arrived in a very high pace. So we almost didn't have any time between the courses and finished 30 minutes after entering the restaurant. So it was kind of a rush.
In conclusion a restaurant to recommend. Good food. Nice ambient.

I was also part of the group of 24 and everything was excellent. We were that impressed we were going to return but sadly could not fit in the return visit. Would recommend a visit.

This restaurant just has a small gate outside but welcoming ambiance on the inside. It's quite easy to find as it's just on the side of the chapel in Cascais. I have read a lot of good things about this place and decided to try them. The male staff was attentive and since we arrived early, we were able to get a seat right beside the fire place which was a nice touch. They have recommended specialties of the day which are also nice choices but we chose to pick from their menu even if we have to wait a bit longer. But it didn't really take that long as we had our entrees served and we love the hot bread with pate, fish eggs cooked with herbs in olive oil. We ordered the fish and shrimp souffle which was a really huge souffle (I would recommend this only for really big appetites), steak in olive oil with garlic topped with prawns with home made fried potato on the side then for desserts we ordered petite gateau with vanilla ice cream- which was so nice and would order again and the carrot cake with Oporto wine. Unfortunately, as I am allergic to alcohol we just ordered water and 7Up for drinks. Total bill- € 62.50 and would definitely return again to try their other specialties.

Predominantly a steakhouse this restaurant looks pleasing. However everything was spoiled by a waitress who forgot to bring our prawn starter and made little apology for same. Thus it was straight to our steaks which were adequate. Sparse servings of salad and chips were disappointing- even more disappointing was the offer of our waitress to offer more portions, which were charged for.. Very expensive 1/4 l bottles of fizzy water and relatively expensive wine set the tone for a forgettable experience

The right place for a genuine Italian Gelato! Come and try our special flavors: scrock, nutella, oreo, kitkat and many others!
I'm a proclaimed fan of this ice cream shop. I always take the basic flavors as a guide line for the taste and quality of the ice cream. This my friends, is confidently the best ice cream in town ... make the challlenge and compare....MoreDear Guido! You are always welcome! Thanks for apreciating!

This is a normal "pasteleria" where you can buy correct (not outdtanding) sweets and also salted specials (rissois to heat up), this is ok.
Don't step in to sit down and have lunch here, food isn't up to the price asked and service doesn't care at all for the clients.
Just having a cake, sweet, dessert ... and a coffee should be ok.
It was crazy to observe that, in the morning of the 24th of December,tons of people were waiting in line to pick up their special Xmas cake (bolo rei)!!! I bet they waited over one hour :(
WATCH OUT if you park your car, don't forget to buy a ticket otherwise you'll get a fine. Often beggars or other people "selling stuff" (lotery tickets...) hang around on the sidewalk close to the entrance, police are chasing them away regularly...

It has an entrance to our Rooftop, a popular open roof with a 360 degrees view. We are open all day every day from 10-22hrs.
I visited the restaurant twice and the customer service and experience was top
notch.During the day I visited the roof top Terrace with amazing views of Cascais and also visited the downstairs restaurant for the hot maze with a large party. The food is healthy, delicious and inspiring with some great combinations - you have to try the beetroot and strawberry juice, it's totally divine. It's great value day or night

The best grilled sea fish in natural charcoal.
I visited here with a friend for dinner. The location is fab with beautiful views out to sea. The staff were very friendly and advised us well on what wine. Had a superb meal, the swordfish was just amazing, and the wine was an excellent choice. Good to laugh and chat with the waiter and boss too! Thanks guys we had a lovely evening.

I have installed Trip Advisor. Search a restaurant and this was the first one that appears. How luck I have! A typical Lisbon Restaurant without that fancy stuff. They have typical Portuguese food. They have typical Portuguese desert. The staff was superb! I recommend it!Thank you for your comment . And we hope a new visit. Best regards
