This restaurant fully lives up to its Michelin star. The food is excellent and of the quality you would expect for this rating. The venue is romantic as it overlooks the Tamega river and the picturesque church and bridge of Amarante. Staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. Our sommelier was able to advise on suitable wines to accompany our meal... More

My husband and I enjoyed an evening of outstanding food that was presented in such a way that it was more than dinner, it was the entertainment for the evening as well. The service was impeccable and the wine complimented each course. I would fly back to Portugal tomorrow to eat dinner at the Largo do Paco

From the benchmark amuse bouche through wonderful wood pigeon breast, sublime veal and lovely desert, excellent wine, impeccable service and a comfortable relaxing dining room, this was a very memorable experience which I can't wait to repeat.

Everything about the evening here was excellent. The food, the service, the price (reasonable for the quality of food), and the pre-dinner drinks on the veranda. Some of the dishes are very Heston Blumenthal, and the quality and experience was perfect. Only slight complaint is a lack of background music in the bar... just loses something in the ambience.

Amazing food, and the service was perfect. We were delighted with the variety and combination of flavours on the menu, and the waiter was very knowledgeable, providing us with detail on the dishes prior to ordering.

Lunch with a group of 6 and everything was perfect from beginning to end. We had the Largo do Paço tasting menu with the wine pairing and it was flawless. One of the best meals I've had and I seriously recommend it!

If you get to Portugal don't neglect the town of Amarante. It's fantastic, if a little off the beaten path. It's really got it all, including a Michelin starred restaurant.
