Marlen is a great host, and the food way above average. Pumpkin soup to start with: delicious!! The deer as main course outstanding. Very reasonable prices.

They make seasonal food, and truly care about what you eat and drink. We felt really welcome. The attention to detail, taste, wine was great. Highly recommended!

Great service and great price. Try the carrots and remember to ask for a dose of the local medicine.

Our visit was so good it has inspired me to type my first ever review. We dined at the restaurant three times in five days. Excellent service. Marlene even prepared special glutton free bread for second visit. Excellent food especially the steak and lamb. Good selection of wines and cozy surroundings. Can't wait to visit Portugal and the Alambique again.

My wife and I ate here twice during our honeymoon. What can I say - this restaurant is real gem: Excellent food with weekly new specialties, a wonderful guest room and an excellent service. If you happen to be in the area and look for a special place to eat, I'd always suggest O Alambique.

Staff were busy but very attentive, food was absolutely excellent - all home made with local ingredients, servings even allowed us to have room for dessert! After a few disappointing meals in other places this was a treat to find only 5 mins away following a recommendation from our villa owner.

Visited here for an evening meal with my parents whilst on holiday. We were booked in on the recommendation of the people who ran our hotel. Cute traditional restaurant that's not too large - a small amount of tables provide a lovely atmosphere. Excellent wine and food served beautifully. Wide variety of food on the menu for both veggies and... More
