They do their best to satisfy the exquisite taste of the royals who visit Cascais since the troubled times of World War II. By then, most of the European royal families came here in search of shelter. Luckily, we commoners also take advantage of the delicious gastronomy served.
My top restaurants in Cascais
Cascais is one of the most exquisite villages in Portugal. Its aristocratic past gave it the fame of being home of the rich and famed. Nowadays it still remains as one of the favourite addresses of the upper and upper middle classes, living around Lisbon, mostly due to the wonderful climate and the lovely Cascais beaches.
Naturaly, restaurants in Cascais tend to do their best to satisfy this demanding clientele used to enjoy the fine food and wine around the world. Therefore, most of the restaurants in the area offer refined menus. In many cases local ingredients and ancient recipes are used, however they are usually presented with a contemporary and gourmet touch.
Enoteca de Cascais
Address: Rua Visconde da Luz, 17
Phone: +351 214 822 328
Enoteca could be literally translated as “wine library”. Therefore at Enoteca de Cascais wine is king. Besides offering around 400 different wines, the all decoration is based on the wine colors.
However, Enoteca does not live by wine alone. The food, ranging from the Portuguese traditional dishes until international cuisine, is amazing and prepared with first-class ingredients.
These two factors combined create the perfect conditions for a good talk and this is why Enoteca is more than a restaurant is a get-together place.
Address: Avenida Valbom 1
Phone: +351 214 832 586
In the heart of Cascais, Casa Velha is one of the most iconic restaurants of the village. The warm decoration and the kind service make us feel at home. The familiar ambience is enhanced by the tasty food served. From the fish dishes I would recommend the sea-bass. As for the meat I advise duck with orange. But be sure to leave some room for the magnificent desserts!
Furnas do Guincho
Address: Estrada do Guincho
Phone: +351 214 869 243
The modern and elegant decoration combined with the breath taking view over the ocean, turns this restaurant into a magical place to enjoy a magnificent meal.
The friendliness of the staff is another must of Furnas do Guincho along with the delicious food with special focus on the seafood dishes.
Rola na Areia
Address: Estrada da Areia Clube de Campo Dom Carlos I
Phone: +351 214 850 316
The country chic decoration fits perfectly in the surrounding landscape. Rola na Areia is privileged located between the woods and the Guincho beach. Therefore it is the perfect place to enjoy a relaxed meal.
But of course, aside the cozy ambience and the friendliness of the service, a restaurant lives above all of the food served. And Rola na Areia does not disappoint the most demanding tastes.
La Brasserie de L’Entrecôte
Address: Marina de Cascais, loja 43
Phone: +351 214 818 196
The decoration and the ambience recall the traditional French coffee houses. Wood is the main material used providing a warm atmosphere. The concept of this restaurant, brought from Switzerland, was based on a simple yet exquisite menu. For years entrecôte was the only ingredient on the menu. Prepared according to exclusive recipes and served with different sauces and garnishes, the entrecôte never disappointed the expectations. Nowadays the restaurant also serves salmon for fish lovers and seitan for vegetarians.
