We were a party of eight celebrating a birthday dinner at this amazing restaurant. We started with a nice port, and some photos outside overlooking the ocean. The view from the restaurant is stunning. We all ordered a four course prixe fix meal, which turned into 10 unique items to eat. The service is second to none, and each thing...

Stayed here for the 3rd time. Must say I'm not sure I'd go back. Staff were friendly and very helpful but the rooms need a facelift. Looks a bit old and outdated. Location is stunning and the restaurant faultless and staff are great but for the price of a room per night, other hotels closer to the centre of cascais...

I'm not usually into superlatives, but this meal at the most gorgeous hotel at the most westernmost part of continental Europe was our best meal in a week in Portugal. This restaurant deserves its Michelin award for the food, wine selection and service. The snacks and amuse bouche selections are designed with the ocean, fish and rocks as a theme....

The Fortaleza do Guincho is a 5 Star Hotel with a Michelin Star Restaurant and is perched on cliffs looking out to the Atlantic. A 17th Century Fort majestically converted resulting in a very charming place to be indeed. The views are breath-taking, the hotel itself is lovely inside, the rooms are comfortable. The Michelin Star Restaurant serves lovely food...

Great for views, but no elevator, no bed-side electrical outlets, zero outlets in the bathroom. Breakfast was very nice. The second floor room we had included a nice closed in balcony with a small reading sofa.

This is the complete antidote to the large hotel chains that, while comfortable, are the same all over the world. Perched on a cliff with a spectacular beach alongside it, we really enjoyed the intimate atmosphere - it only has 27 bedrooms - and the excellent service. Its a quiet setting and there's not much to do if the weather...
