Fantastic!!!

What a fantastic meal. My wife and I had the 6 course offering with wine pairings for dinner. The food was exquisite yet not precious little bits but well thought out courses. If there were 6 courses there were also 6 "surprises" from the chef, so come hungry. Hans Neuner deserves his... read more

I don't think you could fail to be impressed by this restaurant. The tables are all positioned to take advantage of the fantastic view over the Atlantic and through an impressive picture window. The level of service is impeccable, not only are the staff attentive but also well rehearsed in giving an exciting sense of theatre to the serving of... More

This review is based on a one time personal experience. We frequently go to Michelin starred restaurants . This restaurant has some ups, but a little bit more downs. I made a reservation in January, for a dinner with 3 in July. You would expect to be seated on the Ocean Side, but we got the table furthest away from... More

Place is great with a fantastic view of the ocean. Few tables and excellent service exception made to the long wait for the last dish unforgivable for a starred Michelin restaurant. I would say that 80% of the food was creative and very tasty with a specially remark to the first appetizer and the late veal dish with a very... More

First of all the food; What can I say? Out of this world. Every single one of the 11 courses we had was spot on in taste, texture and presentation. Also the wines were well picked and very well described and introduced by the sommelier. The view and the interior add to the overall experience. However, I am not giving... More

It's hard for me to be surprised by a good restaurant, but Ocean isn't just excelent. It's outstanding and I consider it the best restaurant in Portugal at the moment (and, believe me, I'm a regular client in Michelin starred Portuguese restaurants). The ambiance, quality of the service and, above all, the quality of the food are fantastic. A note... More

Our visit to Ocean got off to a bad start. After a ride on a golf cart from the hotel reception to the restaurant, upon arriving at the restaurant the hostess informed us that there had been a mix-up with our reservation and that we did not in fact have a table. She sent us for a drink in one... More

When we reserved we were told we had a table on the much-coveted terrace. We called on the way to ensure that they still had our table. Upon arrival we were seated at an indoor table large enough for six people. Only upon inquiry as to the status of our highly sought-after, worth-an-hour-drive terrace table were we told that a...

Now this is a restaurant which truly deserves Two Michelin Stars if not more. (having dined two days earlier at another in the area) The moment you enter you are made to feel so very special. The ambience is classical, the view from the terrace is paradise. It is fine dining at its best, each course was an adventure of... More
