“Don't believe Taxi drivers!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2013

We had a "closet" tourist guide when we took a taxi from the station.He pointed out Beira Mar as being the best fish restaurant in town.I am sure the owner must have been related as whilst it wasn't bad it certainly did not live up to it's billing (except for the mussels)
I has a nice location but, I fear it has rested on it's laurels for some time.Also rather expensive for what was delivered.

“Hidden from the main walking flow of Cascais”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2013

This is a very fine seafood cafe/restaurant with carefully prepared, fresh seafood. Much of Lisbon is about good seafood, but this one stands out. It is off the main walking paths, but is worth seeking and was recommended by one of the local art dealers. It does not have an ocean view but the food and service were excellent.

“Needs improvement”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 April 2013 via mobile

It's a fish restaurant. And it looks like typical tourist place.
The quality of the fish is disappointing and the polite waiters cannot change it.
It's not cheap, which makes the frustration even higher.
We tried 4 different dishes and only the shrims were close to well made fish food.

“Excelent Seafood in Cascais Portugal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2013

If you go to Lisbon and have time to a diner in Cascais (about 30 minutes driving from downtown Lisbon) try the Beira Mar. I have been there alreay several times and it keeps the quality and the level of the food. At front door you find a nice aquarium with live lobters, crabs and other. I was there 2 days ago and I had an wonderful plate of ameijoas (clams) and a grilled blue lobster that was brought alive to my table before going to kitchen. The wine list is mostly of portuguese wines and not that expensive. Dessert is not the best part of the Beira Mar but I forgive it because of the quality of the seafood and fishes!

“Best in Cascais”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 April 2013

I have been to Beira Mar for years. The best seafood in town. Fresh seafood from the fishmarked next to the restaurant every day. My favorite is the Sole Meuniere, and not to forgeth the grilled Gambas Tigre with piri-piri, .... 50/50 local/turist. Beira Mar is a must when dine in Cascais.
