We had lunch here after visits to Boca do Inferno and Cabo da Roca so the apetite was not missing. We were looking for sea based food for decent prices and John Bull delivered. I had the pasta with shrimp, it was good but I...More

Great location in a square in the center of Cascais. 6 of us arrived in mid afternoon and were immediately seated at a prime location outside. Staff was very accommodating to move tables and seat 6 of us together. Leisurely lunch drinking wine in the...More

Lovely location in a square in the centre of Cascais but it appears that because of their prime location they pay little attention to food quality or service. The Spaghetti Napolitana (tomato sauce-what's to go wrong?!) was made with what appeared to be watered down...More

Sat here on many occasions for drinks, lunch and dinner on one night.Food was okay but all you would expect from pub food. Very busy and popular location.

Right off the main street, tucked in a corner, a good tourist find and a good meal cooked locally. We enjoyed the wait staff, the wine, the food. What more could you ask. Tables are close together and you are sitting outside mostly, however they...More

While on a sight-seeing tour we took a break and stopped at the John Bull Restaurant. As you will find in Portugal, the restaurant staff will bring simple meal starters – a couvert. You may accept them or reject them as there is a small...More

Soup was ready-made, beer was not good, spagetthi bolognese was so-so. It's not worth visiting this restaurant there are better places in Cascais.

We've eaten here a couple of times now and I like it. It looks a bit cheesy, half timbered olde English style but don't be put off, it's a Portuguese cuisine restaurant. I had the grilled grouper which was a big lump of fish and...More

We were on the Pub side off the main road sitting at the rear in the open. It is clearly a popular destination for the English tourists however the menu was traditional Portuguese. We shared a plate of Bulhao Pato clams cooked in olive oil...More

Good menu choices, food comes fresh, complementary bread and olives. Grilled sea bass was nicely done. A bit pricey but food and service was great.

Ate on the terrace in April 2011 and it was delicious. We shared a seafood rice (25euros) which we were told would feed two people. It was fantastic and easily the best paella we ate on our trip and would feed three people especially if you have bread and a starter. This was the best meal we had during our 3 weeks in Spain and Portugal. One of our party spilt a little sauce on her top and the waiter came to her aid immediately with a spray to fix her blouse. Fantastic service, setting, price. Wish I could eat there again.
