The food is fantastic the people friendly and a great atmosphere. We stumbled across the Museu dos Salgados quite by accident but it was so good on the first visit we went back twice in a fortnight.

We've been to this restaurant at least a dozen times over the years. The food and service is consistently excellent. Prices are reasonable for the quality.

The food was pretty good. "Catalana de Tamboril e Gambas" is very good. Deserts also at a high level. The thing we didn't like was the service. The waiter started being quite attentive but as new guests were coming didn't care any more about us. Note: my kid didn't agree with this classification. He thinks the restaurant deserves five stars.

Just been for a meal at this restaurant. When we arrived there was no one about and we had to walk through to the kitchens to find someone. Surprisingly there were two customers already sitting as we had assumed due to the lack of staff that the place might not be open. We were shown to our table and given... More

We arrived just prior to the start of the European Cup Final and were still made very welcome in an empty restaurant. Fabulous food, willing to adapt for the fussy eaters and the chef managed to catch most of the match between catering for us! Don't order cocktails - very expensive - 3 times the price of those in restaurants... More

This is a lovely restaurant, the ambiance, the food was amazing, and although we struggle to ever find a bad bottle of Portuguese wine, we don't know anything about it, so asked for wine recommendations. We were bought 3 options, and the wine we choose was amazing, we did the same with a dessert wine. Neither were top of the... More

We were staying at the Salgados Palm Village and fancied a change from the buffet restaurant so ventured just up the road where we found Museu. We were greeted by a friendly waiter who took us to the back of the restaurant in the conservatory (which is nicer in warm weather). We ordered the bruschetta for starter to share which... More
