Grace is a wonderful chef and hostess. Her 18 hour days make for perfection. We're going back in 4 days for another special meal, before we return to the comparatively mundane cooking at home. Toujours Grace!

La Bonne Etoile is a cafe, tea room, restaurant and art gallery that is completely innovative, offering a corner of the French Riviera in Cascais. Entering that place is like entering a private home rather than a restaurant. The atmosphere is refined and the customer is received as a friend. Everything is designed to help the customer enjoy the flavors and aromas that awaken the senses. The menu is French influenced and changes regularly.
