Description: Located in a former distillery and inserted into the surrounding space of the Quinta da Pena, in Vila Caiz - Amarante, the "Pena - Restaurant & Bar" results from the rehabilitation of a historic space with a contemporary language. In a familiar environment, the space is divided between the living room set in the very mill, the bar-cellar suitable for a winter afternoon by the fireplace and a large terrace that invites you to taste the house cocktails or dinner on the patio and under a candlelight on the hot summer nights. The gastronomy of the house will take you to the flavors so characteristic of our region, coupled with its outstanding creativity. In a refined place in its rusticity, the customer finds the flavors of the house and the region and also enjoys the tranquility reflected by the surrounding space consisting of the manor house and its gardens, the woods and several secular acre farms. More than just a meal, we want you to live a unique moment. Make yourself at home ...

“Wonderful family Run Restaurant”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

We had a delightful meal here last night, the staff were extremely attentive especially the owners son who was not working but stayed all evening to help with translation as he spoke English.
The food was excellent and typically Portuguese, two courses for two, two bottles of wine, water coffee all for under 60 Euros !!!!!
The venue was steeped in history, and is a fairly new restoration, well worth the visit, with the added pleasure in playing with the family labrador puppy who waits outside.
