We first came here in 2010 and returned again this year September 2012. Last time it was really good but tonight was even better. We sat outside on the terrace overlooking the pretty cove of Benagil and it's eclectic collection of fishing boats and locals going about their day-to-day business. We all ordered something different, my Wife and Dad ordered monkfish to share, Mum ordered grilled fish and I had a mixed meat kebab. The rest of my family were all going "hmmm, yum" and I certainly was tucking into my epic kebab, that took quite some devouring but was beautifully cooked, tender bits of meat with gently mixed herbs and spices. Even the side salad was elegantly presented with a little tarragon and a slight french dressing (or something along those lines).

In a nutshell, take it from the entire Lewis family that Cas Lamy is well worth a visit. Some people have commented here that the service is slow, our orders were taken promptly, the food took awhile to come (fair enough, that is indeed the case) but then we are so used in the UK to eating microwaved food from restaurants which does take seconds to cook and then is served half heartedly by a scowling girl who doesn't want to be working on a Sunday, or indeed ever at all - We should learn from continental restaurants like this that taking time to prepare and serve beautiful, honest food is WELL WORTH the wait! When served with a smile and a friendly piece of banter, that is fantastic!

We have been dinning here for the last 5 years, both as a family with my sons and this week just with my wife. The fish of the day is always very very good, superb value. We always enjoy the garlic prawns as a starter, and this is certainly the family favourite. The staff are always friendly and helpfull. Try to get the table at the far end of the patio, overlooking the bay. Book to avoid dissapointment as it can get busy in August. Puddings are not their best, I wished they did a decent creme brulee. Puddim is fine.

We were recommended to try here and were unsure as we walked up the steps. It was very busy, which is always a good sign. Service was slow.
Don't let the plastic tables and chairs put you off. The food was excellent. We asked which fish were fresh and the waitress brought over a metal tray full of fresh fish so we could choose.
Could not fault the food although we asked for extra butter with our bread and were charged €1.50 for two tiny plastic pots. Would return but this left a slight bad feeling.

we have visited this restaurant several times and each time it has taken ages to be served.
In the summer when they know they will be busy they don't seem to have enough staff.
we walked out the last time and will not go again
