Its been months since we ate here but i still think of the lady and her mother who own this restaurant. We ate here twice it was so good. By far the best salmon I've eaten, and the poached pear was beyond amazing! Its really the little things you remember from a holiday and this restaurant is always something I'll... More

We enjoyed a lovely menu with different tasts but nice ingredients. Sometimes a little bit to sweat for my personal taste. Perfect wine and good service. Although we like to practice our Portuguese speaking it was nice to discover the lady of the house was from Begium and still speaks our language.

Have eaten here every time we come to Portugal over the last five or six years. The food is incredible & the service second to non. My wife is a vegetarian & also does not eat certain other foods which makes life for a chef challenging, but here they always come up with something really special for her. As for... More

Me and my wife had a meal here and found it excellent, fine dinning food with a lovely ambience, open air with candle light. The staff were very friendly and informative about each dish as it was presented to you. Expensive but a real treat with a quite little village

Charming , romantic and eating under the stars. The menu was modern fusion and thankfully choices were small in number but high in quality. The standard of service was friendly and attentive. Whilst perhaps at the top end of ones budget, we came away with the feeling it was well worth it and importantly we would go back

Service was exceptional here. The gifts from the chef were extremely tasty, and definitely a new palette of tastes for me. We shared prawns for starters and they were quite tasteless however my main vegetarian lasagne was quite nice, albeit I think quite overpriced. My partner had the beef and enjoyed it.
