We had diner in the restaurant, and this was an unforgettable experience, the Portuguese tradition in parallel with the modern touch, making the meal a moment with many (good) surprises. We had two "menus de degustação'. A positive point is that they also have a kids menu. Very nice and attentive service, a place that makes it worth going to... More

We chose to dine here because of its very convenient location -- we were staying at the hotel and we thought it would be fun to dine at a Michelin rated restaurant. We are so happy we made this decision! We went on the night of the semifinal football game between Portugal and Wales. I mention this because we were... More

The service was exceptional! Out of this world. The presentation of the plates were gorgeous. I loved the extra chef treats we got with our lunch. The menu of the week was a great value and tasty. Very interesting favors. Not your everyday meal, but a well-worth experience. The menu had atum, beurre blanc, gengibre, ananás dos açores, e molho... More

We booked this restaurant for Saturday lunch and were not disappointed. The whole experience was delightful both to the taste buds and also visually. The staff were polite and noticed and met your every need. The locally produced wines were first class and how nice it was to dine at a restaurant where one felt that you were not being... More

We chose from the a la carte menu. The pre-starters were very clever and presented in a fantastic way. It certainly was a feast for the eyes. Our mains were a little disappointing, the lamb was a little tough and the cod was a little too salty for our tastes. We have noticed that salt seems to be used more... More

The food and service is excellent here, we had the digestion menu of 7 courses with wine, it was very good. The best probably the veal and the lamb. Excellent presented and the accompanying wines very interesting, including port with fish which worked very well
