We hired a driver to take us around Sintra and Cascais. We visited the Castles in Sintra and stopped here for lunch. This is an amazing fish restaurant, if you love fish. Possibly our best meal in Portugal.

A most wonderful dining experience. The fresh seafood, we had sole meunière, was presented in elegant French table service. With great wine recommended by the sommelier, this was the best lunch of our 3 week vacation. Highly recommend!!
