Have dined at Casa Velha with my wife during our holidays at Quinta do Lago. Everything was perfect from start to end. And the food tastes wonderfully with all the flavours melting in your mouth. Certainly worth a one star Michelin but great work is always rewarded and will be a matter of time. Will come back!

Lovely place beautiful location. Had the langoustine with truffel as a main course. Was very nice. As a starter the salmon sashimi which I found ok. Not great and quite a small portion. Besides that the service was nice, good wine and a very beautigul location.

We ate at Casa Velha last week. It's an old favourite but the cooking and the service just get better and better. We were three generations but there was food for all of us and.....it was outstanding. The Crab Starters, mains of Atlantic Langoustines and deserts were all superb as were the wines. Yannick and Celine run a superb restaurant... More

Every year when on holiday we dine at Casa Velha (for 20 years) and have seen the changes & transformations this restaurant went through. It was always one of our top choice restaurants but since the transformation it has become "the top choice" Lovely evening that starts with the very warm welcome of Céline. The setting is beautiful overlooking the... More

A very warm greeting on arrival then into the fabulous courtyard area for a pre dinner drink and a stunning meal. We went as a family of 4 and whilst the menu was a little extravagant for our teenage daughters (which of course we already knew before we went), the sheer joy of the food and the overall experience made...

We had a wonderful meal here on a recent trip to Quinta. The food is absolutely fabulous and tasted amazing . In fact it was so good, we visited twice which is very unusual for us. The lamb and the lobster were delightful. The setting is beautiful, with amazing sunsets and the service is wonderful. We will certainly be returning... More
