“Very Good Hotel Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2011

Is very unusual in Portugal to have good restaurants in Hotels. this is not the case of Porto Novo. I like the modern atmosphere, the food and the excellent service. It has a cellar with very good wines, that we can see from outside or go into. This is a place where we can eat very good portuguese food, I like the sunday's buffet,

“Nice ambience and food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2011

We dined and had breakfast there and both were equally good. Breakfast is buffet style and everything is clearly identified, for example low fat milk and cheeses are clearly marked. The fruit platters were replenished regularly and always looked inviting. All the other foods, meats, cheeses etc were also replenished regularly.
Dinner was good although the lighting was very dim and I noticed several people struggling to read the menu. not all of the staff speak English so it can be difficult to get the correct information on the menu. Overall it was a pleasant experience, the fish cooked in the wood-burning stove is delicious. We onluy had a main course as we were not very hungry.
