“What a great Surprise!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

It is always good to find a restaurant in their first season, that is so eager to please. Really lovely fresh food with staff so eager to please and ensure that you enjoy an evening with them. When I leant that there was an experience leant through the cruise life, you will understand why the staff here are so good at wanting to please. Thank you for a lovely evening.

“Superb find would return”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

This was a great find, the restaurant is inland only about 5 -10 mins drive from varandas do lago, this was a pleasant change from one of the tourist hotspots.
The terrace at the back was beautiful, and the service and attention to detail could not be faulted.
The childrens food was homemade and went down a treat with all 4 of the children in our group,ll aged 5 and under, they were provided with colouring pencils and a picture to colour, that together I with the live muic kept them entertained and made for a relaxing,enjoyable meal for the adults.
The food was superb and we would definately return

“A joy to find such a lovely place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

My husband and I had a 5 night break in Quinta do Lago in the middle of September. We struggled to find a Restaurant we wanted to eat in but went to this restaurant on the recommendation of a friend who stays nearby on a regular basis. We like to eat early and were first seated on a Saturday evening. the staff were all very attentive and helpful. the surroundings were up to London standards and the food was perfectly cooked.

Last night went to this amazing meat Restuarant called Menta Pimenta. The best New Zealand lamb we have ever eaten, Perfectly cooked and tender and a generous portion given.
Wonderful service and excellent quality. Can highly recommend this restaurant to anyone.

“First class meal and service at a reasonable price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

We first ate at the restaurant the day after it opened in March this year and were impressed with the friendly and professional staff. Limited menu but varied and excellent quality. We came back last night and really pleased that the high standards of service and quality were just the same - the three course meal (with appetisers) and excellent house wine cost just over euros100. In my book very good value for the area and we will definitely be back on our next visit to Quinta.
