Been here twice so far in a 4 day stay in the area. All dishes were very nice (steak, burger, fish and curry were tried) and found to be good value at around €14 ave. not really a traditional Portuguese place but excellent service, food and value are what we received. Staff speak good English and friendly too.

I don't if it was just a bad day, but I was expecting a lot more from the restaurant and, of course, the food. The food is normal and the tapa we had has nothing to do with the one we were expecting... The staff is friendly and the location is good. But it's a bit expensive.

Looks very nice as you walk in and we were taken to a table straight away. The background music was nice but a little too loud. The menu was a little restricted and the final bill was certainly not restricted. Wont be back!

The title says it all, place looks nice on the inside, food is average and so overpriced. Not a portugese restaurant nor a tapas bar, it serves mainly burgers and not so tender steaks.

They have a nice place in town, especially the outdoor terrace, but they also have a slow service and just so so food. It seems to be better. It was a bit disappointing.

As a rare American in Vila Nova de Milfontes, we were made to feel right at home...bar staff, waiters and owner all did whatever was necessary to please us. They even made change for us on a 500 Euro note, when the bank in town would not!! Only restaurant that offered a chilled Gazpacho, which I deem necessary for a... More

We were walking in to town to check out the restaurants when we spotted Ritual just up the road from our hotel just by the castle. It looks very unassuming from the outside but is a great place run by a very nice lady & her small team. Atmosphere was great nice music, we started with drinks (jugs of Sangria)... More

Quiet Sunday afternoon and great friendly service. Didn't feel like a typical Portuguese place. Burgers good. Homemade style cooked to order and delicious. Real lemonade a treat for drivers. Really enjoyed the cinnamon stick to swirl through my coffee.
