On a friends recommendation we visited this quaint old school restaurant. The courtyard must be stunning to dine in the summer, November evening didn't lend itself to that. Service, wine and more importantly the food where outstanding . Not overly priced. A genuine delight and highly recommended. Will visit again when I return. I shared the chateubrian . Delicious

My second visit and was again one of the best meals I've ever had... The service was first class but was surpassed by the quality of the food.. will definitely return. Not cheap but you get what you pay for

One of our favourite restaurants. Food is excellent, the service superb and the setting on a warm evening is magic. Right from the reservation process, email confirmations to the warm greeting on arrival to the friendly service at the table this restaurant scores 10/10 at every level. The price range is at the upper end of the price scale but... More

We were delayed by an unexpected but important telefoon call. We didn't want to hurry because we expected good food, atmosphere and wine. So shortly before 22 hours we were eating our main dish, in an empty, and not spacious, dining room while all waiters were very busy clearing tables and resetting them for the next day. Luckily, our waiter... More

The log fire was burning brightly and the ambiance was amazing!!The room was full of warmth, charm and charisma. Good to know that you... More

Not normally open this time of year but it was very cosy sitting inside by the real fire . Food was exceptional and service to match .Han and melon to start followed by a medium rare Rib Eye .

I consider this a first class restaurant. The staff could not be more helpful, also the manager, she had a way of making the staff and diners relaxed and happy. The food was presented and tasted excellent .I would recommend this restaurant to anybody looking for a first class meal. Please keep up this good standard.

Had an amazing time with friends. We were greeted with lovely smiles from all staff members. Decoration is great and the food even better. Wasn't expecting such great service. Thank you all so much. Can't wait to go there again.

Well where do I start? We wanted to take my wife's sister and her husband to a lovely restaurant on their last night with us after they had visited us for the first time since we moved to Portugal. Lots of people had recommended the Gourmet Natural restaurant to us many times but we had never eaten there, we had... More 

Thank Sharon L
NaturalGroup, Gerente geral at Gourmet Natural at the Ermitage, responded to this review

Dear Sharon I have read this review with much empathy for you and for my team. The Gourmet restaurant outside deck area is closed for winter. It seems that you arrived via the rear garden entrance and not the front door where you will always receive a really warm and friendly welcome. The restaurant would normally close from late October... More

My wife and I dined in this restaurant , the staff were very helpful and chatty. I had the scallop dish and my wife had 3 very large prawns, we both had the surf and turf, the lobster was maybe a little over cooked, the Fillet steak was very tasty. Overall I would rate 9/10 and will revisit sometime in... More
