O Mesón Andaluz abriu pela primeira vez em 1979 na Parede, passando depois para o CascaiShopping, e em 2012 mudou-se para a Travessa do Alecrim. Sempre foi um dos restaurantes mais frequentados da zona de Cascais, mas a aposta na qualidade e singularidade gastronómica aumentou o número de clientes. O espaço tem um ambiente simples e apelativo que convida a que desfrute uma refeição em boa companhia.

O restaurante nasceu de duas paixões de Ilídio Almeida, o dono, que primeiro se apaixonou por uma mulher da andaluza (a sua esposa) e depois apaixonou-se pela gastronomia da andaluzia. O Mesón Andaluz permite que faça a degustação de uma vasta quantidade de tapas, raciones e charcutaria. Alguns produtos, são de produção própria, como é o caso dos borregos, leitões e ervas, o que permite apresentar uma ementa original e de qualidade.


Não pode deixar de provar a famosa paella valenciana mista, a fabada asturiana ou a perna de cabrito lechal. Saboreie também o ceviche de garoupa com coulis de batata-doce ou as requintadas vieiras coradas servidas em puré de couve-flor.

    This was the most amazing tapas my boyfriend and I have ever been to; and we occasionally eat at Michelin star restaurants, so we know good food. Highly recommend

    Was really excited to try this restaurant as the reviews were good and there seemed to be a good variety of vegetarian options. However, I'm must say that the food was quite disappointing. The manchego was a bit stale, mushroom dish was not at all what I expected - more of an oily noodle cake. Very odd!!! Patatas Bravas was decent but only 5 pieces of potatoes. Very pricey for an average to poor meal

    Wonderful meal on our last night in Lisboa. Food was delicious, very attentive but never overbearing service, a fantastic bottle of wine and superb coffee to finish. Highlights were the Fried Egg with thin slivers of Ham and Black Truffle and Tuna Two Ways with a Red Onion Compote. Will definitely be the first place to eat on any return trip

    Service was very slow. We ordered a bottle of wine that took forever to appear and when it did, it was the wrong vintage and had turned bad. The food was ok, trying hard to be fancy. The fish seemed frozen not fresh. Disappointing over all. Cool space though.

    Great service and wonderful meals. We saw a few improvements and they were accepted gracefully. The wines were perfectly complementary to the dishes

    What a treat! Excellent choice for tapas in Lisbon. We loved everything about our experience starting with the warm greeting and prompt seating for our reservation. Charming interior and picturesque outdoor seating. Tapas and pork cheeks were delicious! The scallops, oxtail, patatas, and gambas were standouts. Don’t miss the selection of breads with truffle butter! Everything was well prepared and piping hot. Our server was very knowledgeable about all of the food and wines and provided guidance for a great meal. Can’t wait to go back!

    Waiter was great until we pointed out a mistake on the bill. Also, he made me feel like I was constantly doing something wrong. Make people feel warm and appreciated no matter how annoying they are.

    Great food and service! Very friendly and good food recommendations! I ordered the pumpkin soup, grilled octopus, seared scallops and bread with truffle butter- all very delicious! Oh and the wine suggestion was very good as well.

    The setting was very nice and cozy. The waiter was really nice and the food was great! We had tapas and paella. The paella lived up to its expectations and the tapas was also very good.
