Good place if you want to take a family with kids. For adults, it's just a huge crowded touristic place. Food is a bit over priced but serves 2-3 ppl.

Not only restaurant (3 actually) but stores, ice cream, wine store, playground. A really nice place. We decided to visit the Portuguese restaurant. What a nice choose. Giuliana welcome us suggesting cod cake. We got "Bacalhau na telha". Cod and Vegetables in a tasty harmony....Arrive early to get a table without wait much.More

We went on a Saturday to Sao Roque and we decided to have lunch at Vila Don Patto’s Italian restaurant. The restaurant was lovely, the staff was very friendly and attentive. We had the prix fixe all you can eat menu, this means they bring...you all they’re pasta and risottos. Children under 5 don’t pay, and from 5 to 11 they pay half price. The pastas were very good! Definitely recommend it! Besides the restaurant they have a playground, ice cream shop and other attractions!More

The place is interesting, has several attractions for children and adults. Parking is very bad and unorganized. For people who will have lunch at the place the "Valet" is free. It has bakeries, handicrafts and 2 restaurants, 1 Portuguese and 1 Italian. I had lunch...at the Portuguese restaurant, they have several options of food, drinks and desserts. The dishes serve 2 people and are beautiful. But the octopus dish and the escalope were not very good but in the other hand, the "Bacalhau" was delicious. Environment without WiFi, with a lot of noise but with good service. Make the reservation before you go!More

Located in a beautiful area off Wine Route near Sao Roque. Portuguese food is excellent but as I was there on my own there are very few options for individual customers, most dishes are for 2 people. Service was great and attentive by a lady...named Shirley. There is also an Italian restaurant, which I haven't visited yet, as well as a shop, a café and a dry-docked boat as a side attraction. Which means lots of families with young kids on weekends, beware. I will return for sure.More

I visited de restaurant in a holliday, the restaurant was full, I bought a dishe of cod named cod don patto, the dishe came with good vegetables but the cod was very very salted and soo dry, the restaurant is expensive, that dishe custed 230...reais, I have eated betters for 80, and de olive oil are compouste, horrible, that they put in a beatiful bottle of "herdade esporão". A great desrespect to the portuguese culinary. A friend was served sparkling wine in a glass with lint and the sparkles get out instantly. Altought all that problems the bolinho de bacalhau was very good, the staff were attentive, and the space is charming.More

While the 'Shop' has a very large display of wines from Chile which are for sale at considerably more expensive prices that the supermarkets, the wine tasting left a lot to be desired....... I watched the lady behind the counter take a used glass to...offer another 'visitor' a sample of a red wine. The lady poured water into the used glass to wash it out, but did NOT attempt to clean the outside of the glass leaving the bacteria/germs of the previous person in place! In seeing this I requested clean glasses which I got to taste a Carmenere Red Wine. The wine bottle was very cold as it was brought from the FRIDGE! while the sign on the bottles for sale advised that it should be consumed at a temperature of more that 16C! For a vineyard I found this 'practice' unbelievable, which the glass 'cleaning' practice left me very angry. We also looked at the food prices in the Cafe and found them to be expensive!More
