Description: Casa do Golfe is a very classy restaurant. We have visited several times in all seasons over the past three years. Service is of a very high standard and staff are friendly and professional. In warmer season you can eat inside or outside on the patio. Situated between Vale do Lobo and Quinta do Lago, it is on its own grounds and the restaurant is very pretty and very memorable.

“Casa do Golfe is now Casa da Quinta!!”
Reviewed September 16, 2012

This restaurant has been in the same family for many years. They have a lovely terrace with smart tables and very attentive staff. Indeed it is difficult to fault the service. The menu is quite extensive and serves a variety of fish and meat in a style is is more attuned to British tastes rather than Portuguese. Indeed the night we went, all we heard was British voices. Whilst the fish fillets we ate were OK, it was obvious they were frozen rather than being fresh as one can find in other restaurants. The prices at 16-20 Euros for a main course were not cheap and we wouldn't rush back there.

“Great family run restaurant - still as good as always”
Reviewed September 6, 2012

We have been going to Casa do Golfe (now Casa do Quinta) for around 15 years, firstly with our two young (now teenage) children but this time just the two of us. The restaurant has been constantly changing over the years and has recently been upgraded in terms of decor and the terrace extended. We had anothe rgreat meal, the lamb chops and steaks are to die for, with an ever changing wine list that always has some good value wines. Jose and his family have been running the restaurant for years and provide a friendly touch to a visit with an after dinner drink offered (try the local ameringa with lime, fantastic). We would always fit a visit to Casa do Quinta on any trip, a firm favourite!

“Once again excellent”
Reviewed August 31, 2012

Been coming here for years and always a favourite. Just love John dory with banana. Always made welcome and glass of port to end meal makes it perfect. Extended terrace really good, more room. Prices have gone up with new name but still worth it for excellent food and service.

“GOES FROM STRENGTH TO STRENGTH”
Reviewed March 27, 2012

Went last week, as consistently good as ever. Wonderful rack of lamb and profiterole cake. Now Casa de Quinta, but still ran by the same family. In the last 10 years I have been coming I have seen changes, the decor, the the new outside area, the new bar, but the staff have not changed, other than the lad of the owner now serves, got his dads nose, and the menu hasn't changed with the excellent quality of food on offer. I am normally in Portugal at Easter but not this year and I shall miss my usual second visit to this restaurant.

“an absolute gem for food and service”
Reviewed November 9, 2011

The name has recently been changed to CASA Da QUINTA following a complete makeover. Family owned and run so you are being served by the owner or his family. That is the best kind of service. The menu is very wide with big choice of starters at various prices, and lots of meat and fish. A good wine list in a range of price. The top wines of Portugal are more favourably priced here than elsewhere. In summer -or a hot late september evening as my last visit- the outdoor terrace is very well appointed, having been just upgraded. In winter a roaring log fire indoors. You can't be disappointed. I like the pears cooked in red wine for afters !
