“Great food, great service, great atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2013 via mobile

My wife and I dined here, as it is right beside the hotel where we are staying.
The waiter welcomed us warmly and helpfully translated the day's specials into English for us.
There is a wide selection of fish, rice and meat dishes, all served in a rustic restaurant with lots of beams, photos of celebrity diners and awards on the walls.
The service was very attentive and good humoured.
Well worth visiting.

“What a lovely surprise!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

We went to Altura not expecting anything special, then found A Chamine. A cut above the usual resort restaurants, it has established but classy decor, professional staff and a great menu.
What a nice change it made, worth dressing up for!

“Great Food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

The food is very good and the service very fast, and nice staff. We has "Polvo na Telha" and "Ovas de pescada" it was great, very good indeed. It is well worth the trip.
The deserts were traditional, and the fig's tart was to die for, as well as the Dom Rodrigo.
It is a traditional restaurant with great food.
