The restaurant is just above the little beach/harbour at Azenhas. We were out of season and arrived around 14.00 for a midweek lunch but the restaurant was still very busy. Very welcoming staff, extensive seafood menu and good service. All of our food was excellent with large portions. They even cooked us some of the "dishes for two" just for... More

Clinging into the cliff just above a little sandy bay, the Piscinas restaurant offers fresh fish and seafood at top class cooking and service. The view on the ocean is stunning, the waves come smashing into the rocks in a spectacular, continuous way. Food is excellent, carefully prepared, very tasty and well presented.

Our hotel recommended this restaurant, which is on a remote part of the coast west of Sintra. You can happily sit and watch the Atlantic breakers roll in over the man made pool just below the restaurant, while enjoying the freshest fish you will get anywhere. Well worth a visit.

Our guide stopped for lunch at Piscinas- overlooking its own tiny beach in Azenhas Do Mar - on the Atlantic - about due west of Sintras, which is north west of Lisbon about an hour via small roads. What a wonderful experience. Small. Intimate. Almost every table has a view of its exclusive, small beach. Family owned by a young... More

First they put us on a bad table close to one pantry and near the cash register Without any view at the sea. But worst was the cataplana we asked. Really really bad!!! It was like a bad soup, with water, tomatoes, onions and pepper. The shrimps were few and very little. The fish - garoupa - was bad and... More

We enjoyed every minute spent near the Atlantic Ocean with a glass of good wine and cod fish. We recommend!

This restaurant has one of the most stunning views looking out over beach and cliffs and is especially good at sunset. Unfortunately it's a place to avoid when you walk in to be greeted by miserable waiters who didn't even want to acknowledge we had walked in the door (and we had a booking). After that we didn't see a... More
