Terrific Japanese food served with superb Portuguese wines and efficient and friendly service. Great views over the hotel grounds as you enjoy your meal. Not to be missed if visiting Penha Longa.

The architecture of Midori is stunning. You can choose a table that suits your mood: quiet and romantic while gazing out the window-wall view of the lush mountains; adjacent to the large, open teppanyaki grill where you can see and smell all the action; or, at the sushi bar where you can chat with the chefs as they work. Oh,... More

Don't miss the Saturday buffet in Midori, Penha Longa Resort. Excellent and diversity of sushi, sashimi of different kinds of fish and small but good tasty entrees. For the hot dishes, the grill station prepare for you shrimps, salmon and excellent meet. Don't forget the mix tempura. Finally the desert buffet. Not cheap but worst every euro.

We have had our dinner at the last evening. It was a buffet concept. Normally we don't like buffet, but in this case is easy for us. Don't have to drive and we can pack our luggages easily. Food and quality of food is very good. But in my opinion overprize. They use normal stuff, like tuna, salmon, chicken, not... More

Restaurant Midori is located the hotel Penha Longa. We had a dinner, when Midori served buffet on Saturday night. You can eat Sushi, Sashimi, Tempra, noodles and Teppan yaki. We had a lot of Sushi. Sushi chef was Portuguese, but he did very good sushi. Even you don't stay Penha Longa hotel, you should go there. Booking is definitely needed.

Where to begin.... Service: Come for the food, come back for the service. The service was outstanding. From the greeting staff, to the water boy, to the server, to the incredible chefs. Chef Pedro Almeida is a artist!! His food is out of this world! The service was spot on. Water was never empty, beer never low. Food came at... More

My wife and I had dinner. Staff were excellent, and I mean excellent! Food was mediocre. All kitchen staff are Portuguese. It needs more of a Japanese influence on the food if it is to be taken seriously as the best Sushi restaurant in Portugal. .

They know their fish in Portugal, and Midori has the reputation for being the best sushi restaurant in the country. We went for the Saturday night showstopper...everyone in our party agreed that it was the best sushi they'd ever had. WOW!

Midori is the Japanese restaurant within the Penha Longa Resort. This is our second visit to the Penha Longa resort restaurants and this is even better than the previous experience. The difference with most Portuguese restaurants from a service and quality perpective is huge. If only they could learn from these experiences, it would up the quality and services of... More

I am vegetarian and when I asked them what the rolls contains and they said cucumbers, I told them that sounds very boring and to ask the chef if he can make something a little more original. They kept coming out with different types of vegetarian nigiris that were delicous. It is a pricey place but the food was good:)

Come and see our recently refurbished Midori Restaurant with its contemporary feel and magnificient views of the surrounding Sintra hills and Penha Longa (the long Rock). Our regulars find it difficult to decide if they prefer the Sushi Lovers Buffet on Tuesday's with its amazing sushi and sashimi selection or, if they would rather go for the Midori Buffet on Saturdays, where the best of Japanese cuisine is offered to all guests. Tired of decisions, try them all!
