“THE BEST OF THE BEST”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2013

From the moment you step into this magical place you feel so excited about what is ahead. Sergio and hie Katrina make you feel like part of the family. The atmosphere is so unlike any other elegant Resturant I have ever visited. It is an old stone walled stable with the personal touch of the owners. The food was beyond expectations. We enjoyed the veal and our friends had a seafood dish. The is a starter of the most delightful veal pâté with a sauce to die for. This is by far the #1 Resturant in all of Portugal.

“Definitely one of the best meals we ever had.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2013

This place is an absolute gem!! Don't let the distance from the old city deter you from venturing here. We had a veal patte and a cod ceviche for appetizers, both were stellar. Our entree was roasted veal in bone marrow & port reduction sauce... DIVINE! The veal was cooked perfectly. We also chose a fitting red wine from their extensive wine list. For dessert we had choclocate mousse and 'other textures'... If you like chocolate, don't even think of ordering anything else!! Of course we finished the meal with a glass of vintage port each. It was a great ending to one of the best meals we've ever eaten at a restaurant. The service was also top notch. Our bill was about $150 euros which was a bargain for the experience.

Recommended by Rogelio at the Intercontinental Hotel, reserved previously , taxi in 10 minutes
Food was hilarious ! they had ready at the table some cold entrees which were very good and then we had the most incredible grilled Octopus , delicious !
As a dessert I recommend the chocolate mousse and after this you should come back walking to the hotel !
Wine recommendation was great and all the service was fantastic

“Very Best meal in Portugal! - worth going to”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2013

This restaurant is a bit further out- maybe 7 minutes from the main city by the river. We took a taxi (taxis are ridicoulously cheap in Portugal). So worth it, you will not be dissapointed,

Food and wine- A++, service, ambience and decor, A++. The restraurant is in an old stable, with huge irregular stone walls and beam. Can you say rustic an quaint?!

We had the couvert starters, appettizers, a veal for 2 (all the mains are for 3), desserts, coffees, a great bottle of wine --all for just 130 Euro!!!!
