Beautiful restaurant and nature surrounds, but very poor food. We went on a Saturday for the buffet and very poor offer. Regular and ordinary sushi and if you want something cooked such as teppan you need to wait ages! Very expensive (57€) for what they offer.

I don't normally do this kind of thing. It takes a fair amount to annoy me and I'm normally far too lazy to do something like open up a TripAdvisor account and write a review... But... We booked this restaurant at the fairly early time of 19:30 as we had our eight year old daughter in tow. We ordered the... More

My 11 year old son, who is a sushi addict, was devastated when we were told that it would be a buffet for the Saturday evening dinner. Boy we were glad we tried it as it was the highlight of his stay. Not at all what one would envision from a buffet, but rather different stations where attentive chefs will... More

After having dined in several Ritz restaurants, this one was a big dissapointment. Food was OKish, but for this price and place I would expect much, much more. We had: seabass (OK) and soba noodles (pork belly) which were dissapointing.

I was expecting the teppanyaki experience where the food is cooked by the chef as you sit around him. Instead it was a buffet. Everyone loved the extensive number of starters and sushi before going to the chef to get what is the normal teppanyaki food. It took some of our party some time to get to the main course,... More

Great buffet experience! Everything was delicious , even if sushi is not your favorite you have a hot buffet with tempura, noodles, beef , fish and seafood! Deserts are delicious too! Its expensive but well worth it!

I regularly go with my wife for the saturday buffet dinner. The place is gorgeous (in Penha Longa hotel, on the slopes of Sintra), the hotel is superb (I advise arrive earlier to take a drink at the bar, enjoying the view at dusk) and the food is first class japonese cuisine. Not with the variety you find in Japan,... More

Excellent is not good enough to say for this experience. The staff was superb. The food incredible. It is a highlight of our visit to Portugal. Of course the atmosphere is very elegant but what else would you expect at a Ritz Carlton unless it was the one on Miami Beach which is a dump.

Well, I haven't ever been to Japan, but from the sushi I've eaten, this is the best I've had so far. Everything from taste to texture to combination of our meal was superb. This is a must-go when staying at Penha Longa, and I'll pass on the advice I got from a fellow guest: go do Midori last because if... More
