Don't let the ranking fool you, this is the best restaurant on the Quadrado, amongst all the higher-end options. We tried out most during our stay and our Uxua dinner makes the edge above all. Beautifully cooked fishes, a manga risotto with grilled shrimps, fantastic...More

Nice restaurant in the picturesque center of the village of trances. Dim lights, vivid colors and the plates that go with it. Take your time, it can be long, and better ask with little salt as a few time the chef was heavy on it....More

Fabulous night, live music, great food & wine. Had mango risoto with shrimp, it was delicious. My friends were also happy with their meals. Quite pricey but worth paying for a special occasion.

Had the seafood and it was just not fresh = was hard and seemed over cooked. Steak similarly dissppointing. Wine list very expensive but also not nice. We had wonderful meals in trancoso apart from this so it was a bit of a let down.

One of the best meals we had in Quadrado. The service is very attentive and they can speak English. The food was very delicate and tasty. Will go back!
