The glory of this little restaurant is the food itself. The prawn appetizer was wonderful as was everything we ate. The setting is nothing special and the owner spent a great deal of time chatting with other staff which seemed a bit unprofessional. Still the food was truly delicious. You should go there.

Asian noodle dish was like a party in my mouth with every bite. Chocolate cake was delicious and the Port was outstanding. The service was fast and very professional. It's a must restaurant in Luz.

We were able to walk in and get a table as it was out of season but still very busy. We shared a starter of mixed meats cheese olives which was excellent. I had the poached salmon with dill and my wife had the asian beef with noodles. We drank the house wine and shared a desert. Well balanced meal... More

It's just "her". She drives you mad with her over zealous description of the ingredients, "it's fantastico" " it's magnificent. And on and on. Just let people enjoy the food and get I with it She does make fabulous cakes

This place is fantastic. Just how a great dinning experience should be. You won't be disappointed and make sure you have the goats cheese.

Went to Chiccas last night with the family, had a few drinks around the village and picked Chiccas because of reviews on here, got exactly what it described, well presented, home made food, great staff, great atmosphere, when in Luz give this establishment a try, you won't be disappointed.

We spent several weeks in Luz and went to Chicca's 4-5 times. It was always fun, Chicca is a lotta woman and she brings life and energy to your evening. Her starters are amazing and are big enough for your main dish. Our favorites were the vegetarian pate and the tempura prawns. Clearly one of the top 3 restaurants in... More
