You look for a typical and simple Portuguese restaurant ? O'Carloto!
5 minutes from the famous Guincho Beach, 10 minutes from Cascais, 30 minutes from Lisbon, in the small village of Areia, stands a typical restaurant, a little far from tourist areas and mainly frequented by Portuguese people! O Carloto is one of my favorite canteens!
Don't expect a sophisticated, stylish and felted atmosphere. No commercial tricks here! You are in a family restaurant without unnecessary decoration where the only things that matter are kindness and the quality/price ratio.
In this restaurant, all the traditional Portuguese dishes are made from fresh products, cooked simply, without artifice and exclusively from the region: Here when you come out of a storm, there are no fish and that's all! You will enjoy there all the popular Portuguese culinary traditions: "Arroz de Polvo", "Caril de Gambas", "Polvo à la Lagareiro" and of course several recipes with "Bacalhau".
Here, my favorites are: the sea bream (Dourado do mar), the sea bass (Robalho do mar)
