Great restaurant

Dinned here for a few night and found the food and service fantastic . We sat outside for the times we went and found it pleasurable as the sun was setting.

Enjoyed dinner in this restaurant recently. Main course whole sea bass. This comes with the usual Portuguese cuisine of boiled potatoes and veg like carrots , broccoli etc . and doesn't seem to include herbs the result of which dishes were a bit boring and bland. If you like stronger flavours I'm sure they would add what would be necessary.... More

We ate here twice while staying at Vale de Carros. It's one of about a dozen Resturants in this area. Nice fish and seafood a bit more pricey than other restaurants in the area but worth it for a special meal. Wine by bottle not carafe so dearer than many others.

Had read great reviews so thought we would try it out and SO wish we hadn't. Waitress seemed incredibly bored and did not smile once during our visit, or should that be, smiled in our direction because the table of business men received a very warm welcome (obviously works on tips) food was ok but served piled high on small...

My two daughters and son-in-law took me here for a meal on the last night of our holiday and what a treat it was. The restaurant is in a quiet location in a lovely garden setting with a small childrens playground (which my two year old grandson loved) and is very welcoming. On the night we went, there was live... More

Visited here on the last night of our holiday and what a way to end it. Food was good, not excellent but well worth the money. The atmosphere was what made this place special though. A live band sang traditional music and played instruments. Towards the end of the evening they made their way around the restaurant and stopped at... More

Had a lovely meal here, the seafood is fabulous, the clams were worth trying as were the jumbo prawns delicious. Not the cheapest but worth it for quality of food. Staff were very nice. Small play area for children was great.

We went to this restaurant after looking at trip advisor! From the outside the restaurant looked really nice and friendly, good atmosphere and trip advisor had good reviews. Maybe we were unlucky with the food choice but I found the food to be very average and the service even worst! The waiters we had pretty much warent interested and honestly... More
