Not only is this an ideal spot for conversation, people watching and enjoying the lapping ocean waves, Bolina serves it up with freshness and friendly service. We have eaten here many times throughout the seasons, enjoying perfectly grilled fish with firm and flavorful veggies. Meat and salads are also on the menu. Other diners complimented the staff on this particularly... More

Last visited 22 years ago. Delighted with it twice again in 2016. We sent cheese and extras back after being told "you only pay for what you eat". We only pay for what we want. So back they went.

Bolina is difficult to beat for a relaxing lunch with a spectacular view. Gluten free options are available if you explain your dietary requirements to the waiters who are all helpful, courteous and as chilled as the place itself! We chose from a fabulous range of salads and would happily return!

On the seapromenade between Estoril and São João do Estoril. The food is vulgar but satisfactory. The price is reasonable. The service is unprofessional and unfriendly, probably due to having fewer waiters. Unfortunately when the wind blows the kitchen chimney smokes unpleasantly about customers. You find best places for dinner nearby.

Another very average restaurant in a setting that deserves much more. When will restaurant owners start making an effort ? Why has everything tend to be so mediocre ?

We took a walk in Estoril as Cascais was way too crowded and found an empty Bolina inviting us for lunch at noon. One hour and a great lunch later the seaside terras is filled with people. Great squid, nice gambas and a refreshing vinho verde.
