I have eaten at this restaraunt several times over the last few years and have always found it quite excellent under the then proprieters Gehard and Judith. After being informed the place was under new ownership and also informed the food was far from anywhere near the standard we have come to expect, we decided to go anyway to give it a fair crack of the whip. When we arrived however we found that it had been closed down. It seems that the poor reviews below about the new management were absolutely correct. What a shame it was a delight before.

We had lunch in this lovely restaurant on 30 Aug, between lunch and dinner hours. The manager re-opened the kitchen and made a special combination of scrumptious starters/tapas that were perfect. He was really welcoming and the service was excellent. Prices were very reasonable and portions sumptuous. The garden is really lovely--- and inside looks very cozy also. Sublime restaurant ---- with all you can ask for. Highly recommended!

We ate twice in this restaurant. Our second meal wasn't as good as the first one but it was still nice. The portions are very generous and the staff are friendly. The garden is beautiful with plants creating shade. The inside gets very noisy even with just a few people.

Picturesque settings and a very friendly staff made this restaurant one of our group's favourite eating places. Fresh local food cooked well in typical Portuguese style and reasonably priced. No rush, no hassle and a lot of information and help from the staff.
Our favourite place was the seating area in the courtyard, but the real fire inside could be tempting on a cooler night. Added to this the fact that we were offered free transport to our villa not a few miles away! What more could you ask?
A genuine Portuguese restaurant run by genuine people!

We have been to A Muralha between 3 and 6 times a year and have always been more than satisifed with the food and service provided by the then owners, Judith and Gerhard. However, when we returned last May we found that the restaurant had changed hands but nevertheless decided to try it out. I can only say that we will NOT be going back again. The food was awful - what bit of pork I could separate from the fat was 90% inedible and my husband's meal was as bad. Previously, there had been a lovely ambience at the restaurant but that had disappeared also. We have since found some more restaurants which we like but were really disappointed about A Murlha.
