There are restaurant habits to which the Portuguese should already be accustomed. The moment a fish in flames comes into the room (the recipe is fish on the salt) dazzles strangers but still does, and will continue to, turn heads even from those who do not eat fish. In Furnas do Guincho, it is customary to see a cart like this come out of the kitchen once a day, in a spectacular show. However, you can ask for the same fish the oven, you can choose lobster açorda (bread stew), the octopus cataplana or just shellfish. Indoor or on the magnificent terrace.
Perfect for: a lunch above the sea, on those windless days in Cascais.
Must try: cod the lagareiro way.
