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.

This is our second summer in Vila Nova de Milfontes, and as last year we had most of our dinners at ritual! The service is so good, they speak english, the food is fresh, and they have a lot of good vegetarian dishes! We love the goat cheese salad, the hummus and the burgers:) We are going back there next... More

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.

We visited this place for dinner. The athmosphere is very nice and very relaxed due to the lights and background music. +1 point The service is friendly and tries the best +1 point But the food was a disappointment. About 4-6 dishes from the menue had not been available anymore. This might be "charming"... The dish which was the reason... More

I had the burger with chess (I forgot which flavour) and my wife had the Thai prawn curry both which were amazing. yes its different from Portuguese cuisine but if you want something different and super tasty this is the spot. The decor is also very cool and somewhat unusual for Portugal. Keep up the good work.
