Lovely food. Great service. Opulent surroundings Would recommend for travellers wanting to dine in elegant surroundings. Not cheap but not overly expensive compared to your average London restaurant

Wonderful food, great wait staff, beautiful dining room. The olive lasagna was so unique. The best I've ever had. They offered us a complimentary appetizer that was to die for - a salmon and caviar bite. I can't wait to go back.

We stayed in Lapa hotel and had dinner here to celebrate my husband's birthday. The communication between staffs were not made so no one was aware of the occasion but the food was delicious and we very much enjoyed our dinner. The deco is rather dated and dark but the food is so great you will probably forget about those... More

This restaurant is old school, the food is served by friendly waiting staff and is just perfect. Nothing is too much trouble, if you want something cooked a bit different from the menu they wil be happy to oblige. I note a reviewer said it was boring but when I am with my girlfriend it is never boring (just saying)

High end restaurant with delicious food. Great service, nice decor. We had dinner there on 2 occasions and both times we truly enjoyed our meal. A little pricey though, but it's what you expect in that kind of setting.

Food was a nice experience and very tasty. The service was good but the restaurent atmosphere was so bad! Very quite, dated. You feel like being in a crematorium.. Shame as it could be fantastic. But the food was very good, so up to you to try it

We celebrated a birthday at this beautiful restaurant. The food and the service were excellent as was the view of Lapa's incredible gardens.
