Restaurant Reccomendation

by SDTraveler

Hello All,

Will be in Cascais end of March and I have promised my partner a special dinner for her birthday (March 28, Sunday). Was wondering if anyone can recommended somewhere very special... dare I say it... money is not an issue, quality of food is. Don't mind much type (Local, Sea Food, etc...) the quality is the key. We will actually be staying in Cascais, so if there is a top-notch place there without having to go into Lisbon all the better.
Thanks for any and all idea

Steve

I would not call Dom Pedro high end, but my family rated it one of their most favorites in Cascais (in Portugal for that matter) . http://members.virtualtourist.com/m/88857/46cc5/2/
The food quality was excellent, the service great, it is just a small hole in the wall place. Almost everyone we spoke with also agreed it was one of the best. If you want more formal high end (and not too unreasonable) we finished our Portugal trip with a dinner at Oliviers in Lisbon. It is mentioned in guidebooks, but make sure you don't try and find the one on Texeira (sp?) as that closed. Karl

We had 7 days in Cascais Sept'08 and dined at a variety of restaurants. We tried to avoid the concentration of restaurants in the town square catering for the tourists.

Most restaurants serving local specialities were excellent, some more upmarket than others but the food was no better.

Perhaps the best of the seafood was Cantinho Da Belinha, 99% of diners were local, but not upmarket , plenty of character. We had lunch there, sardines, just superb.

The best upmarket restaurant was Restaurant Reijos, and great food, nice decor, also has alfresco streetside dining but inside is the place for fine dining.Service excellent.Nice wine list. Photos on my Cascais Restaurant tip.

Enjoy the Birthday celebration.

Hmmm, money no problem..that in itself is a problem...where to go when you are "loaded" ??
But seriously when we were there at the VT meet last year, we enjoyed El Siciliano, take a look at my Cascais pages if you like Italian/Seafood. Not fancy, but the food was EXCELLENT.
Take her for a drink at O'Neils Irish Pub afterwards and say hi to them from the VT bunch who "adopted" them for the week we were there. You could print out a few of the photos and show them there.

Travel Tips for Lisbon

So much to do.........

by dogwoman

Go to the Expo. centre and out the other side and walk to the water gardens. Fun fountains that catch you unawares,resturants. Our children loved this and then we went onto the Oceana,(may have spelt it incorrectly) anyway, it's a HUGE aquariam and is amazing! It also has rooms with penguins and ice! as well as tropical areas. Hours of entertainment.
Then try out the cable carsthat go along the river,great views but remember to sit still as they can sway alarmingly!

Castelo de São Jorge

The...

by ainhoaflies

Castelo de São Jorge

The castle is a living memory of various events that marked the history of Portugal, having been in the hands of Romans, Suevians, Visigoths and Muslims. It was rebuilt in the 1940s and has recently been renovated. From the castle you can look down upon the city and visit the periscope on the Torre de Ulisses and the Centro de Interpretação da Cidade in the Sala Ogival.
You can get up there by foot but it's more interesting to take the tram!

The tower of Belèm.

by Maurizioago

This tower was built to serve as a lookout point over the Tagus river and to defend the port of Lisbon. It was used as a fortress, a prison, a lighthouse and also as a telegraph office and a custom post.

The tower of Belèm is the only monument built completely in Manueline style in Lisbon, even if some of its decorations date from the renovation of the 1840. Its construction begun in 1515 and ended in 1521.

Smile and two kisses

by APaulo

Portugueses are a latin people. Not shy at all. After get know better a person it's normal to say hi or goodbye with two kisses, one in wich side of the face. Men shake hands with men and kiss women. Women kiss women and men. It is not strange a portuguese offer his/her house to stay without second ideas or invite you to have a meal with. But always remember that some wolfes hide under a sheep skin.

Bullfighting Arena

by keeweechic

Bullfights when they are in season (Easter to Mid July), take place on Thursday at the Praca de Touros do Campo Pequeno (as it is locally known). The Arena can hold close to 10,000 people. When the bullfighting is not in season, the arena is used for concerts and events.
