Great staff great fresh fish and salad. Super service. We had spent hours out on bikes and this was a perfect pit stop! The view is amazing also!

Last visited 22 years ago. Delighted with it twice again in 2016. We sent cheese and extras back after being told "you only pay for what you eat". We only pay for what we want. So back they went. Other than that iffy start - seaside perfection under the umbrellas hiding from the boiling sun. Ameijoas a Bulhao Pato a... More

Bolina is difficult to beat for a relaxing lunch with a spectacular view. Gluten free options are available if you explain your dietary requirements to the waiters who are all helpful, courteous and as chilled as the place itself! We chose from a fabulous range of salads and would happily return!

On the seapromenade between Estoril and São João do Estoril. The food is vulgar but satisfactory. The price is reasonable. The service is unprofessional and unfriendly, probably due to having fewer waiters. Unfortunately when the wind blows the kitchen chimney smokes unpleasantly about customers. You find best places for dinner nearby.

Another very average restaurant in a setting that deserves much more. When will restaurant owners start making an effort ? Why has everything tend to be so mediocre ?

We took a walk in Estoril as Cascais was way too crowded and found an empty Bolina inviting us for lunch at noon. One hour and a great lunch later the seaside terras is filled with people. Great squid, nice gambas and a refreshing vinho verde.

I had swordfish and my wife the pork steaks . My fish came as a normal piece instead of the slice which I am used to. However, it was very tasty but the bones made eating mouthfuls quite difficult. My wife's pork was declared very good if a little dry. The overall experience, however, was good with quick and efficient... More

We have visited here for lunch a few times over the last couple of years and have always found the food to be outstanding quality, and the staff really lovely and helpful. The price is very competitive too. We had a three course meal (two people) and a half bottle of wine each and it amounted to just over €70... More
