“Best restaurant in Portugal!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2012

We look forward to visiting o Alambique almost as much as visiting Portugal! The chef-owner is very passionate about her cooking always cooked with the finest seasonal ingredients.

A really varied menu with regular specials really worth a special trip to eat!

“Delicious, delicious, delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2012

We discovered this restaurant by accident and loved the food so much we went back again and again. Everything on the menu including monthly specials was tempting and we were never disappointed by the flavours, taste and presentation. The wonderful varieties of homemade bread(basil, sesame, onion and tomato) on the couverts were the best I have ever tasted and so soft. Little appetisers were a delightful personal touch. The young waiter and owner were both charming, knowledgeable and attentive, with perfect English. A genuinely wonderful discovery! The only disappointment was that they don't do lunch. Opening hours 18:30-22:00. Mar-Oct Closed on Tuesdays, Nov-Feb also on Wednesdays.

“Very good ingredients and cooking with passion gives results”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012 via mobile

We visited with our three children and enjoy it.
The apetizers were very good and the main dishes were kooked with local ingredients.
The chef invited the children to visit the kitchen to see the preparation of the dessert.
We must return.
