Restaurante O Alagar was a gem of a find - very conveniently situated only a few minutes walk from where we were staying in Paderne. Having decided to 'give it a try' we arrived too early, but it was certainly well worth the return trip up and down the hill to be warmly welcomed at 7.00 pm opening time. We... More

Please don't let the position of this place put you off, yes it is at the side of the road but this does not intrude into the interior. Lovely welcome from the serving staff and the young chef is certainly gifted offering a range of local dishes but with his own twist. I cannot recommend the tenderloin of pork ,... More

It was our first night in Portugal last night. We are staying in Paderne and went looking for somewhere local. We stopped here, and we are sooooo glad we did. The food, wine and service were first class. We had shrimps, salmon and soup as starters followed by sirloin steak, shrimps Portuguese style and rack of lamb. None of us... More

We were staying near Messines and decided to venture out to eat. Driving around we stumbled unexpectedly on this gem of a restaurant where we were given a very warm welcome. The food was superb and reasonably priced. We ate there twice on our weeks holiday and will definitely return next year. A very lucky find!

This gem of a restaurant deserves more custom. Just moved into the area and eaten here 4 times. Every meal first class and would rate as one of the best places we have found so far. Tonight we both had scallops on a bed of celery purée followed by rack of lamb with minted pea purée. Absolutely delightful and reasonably... More

Reading the "Portugal News", we discovered this restaurant and could easily find it with a designed indication. The first time we went for lunch and got the chefs menu and this time for dinner we took a menu à la carte but there is a lot of choise beside. Service is very friendly, the athmosphere good, nice decoration and... the... More

We have eaten here at least a dozen times. It is one of our local restaurants and it is a gem. The food is essentially Portuguese with some modern twists. The quality of the dishes is impeccable. The presentation is excellent. Portions are not too large. Service is swift and friendly. Costs are moderate. The atmosphere is enhanced by paintings... More

We holidayed in Paderne the first week of October 2013 renting a villa around 800 metres from the restaurant.On first impressions it is a sleepy old town but as you become familiar it opens its secrets. One is the O Alagar on a bend at the top of the town.The first time we tried, on a Tuesday, it was shut.After... More
