My husband and I dined with our 19 month old and the staff couldn't have been more accommodating. We asked if they could provide a small meal for... More

Still as good as always. The Lemon Tree changed hands in January but the quality of the food and service remains high. Very friendly owners and staff. Highly recommended.

Some friends and I had dinner at The Lemon Tree while away celebrating our graduation. The new owners have done a fantastic job and there was plenty of choice, including a vegetarian option for my friend who doesn't eat meat, this was a welcome surprise considering how difficult it is to find somewhere that caters for vegetarians in Portugal.

We were recommended to try The Lemon Tree while we were on holiday. We received a very warm welcome from the new owners Karen and Ian, and the Portuguese staff that they have retained. The new lemon and green colour scheme inside and out sets the standard and ambience. We were spoilt for choice from the extensive menu. For my... More
