We have eaten here on many occasions and I re-iterate the last review of 25/7/13. On many occasions it has been great but last night it was only average. There needs to be more consistency in the quality of the meat to retain their ranking on trip adviser as there are other restaurants providing consitently great food that do not get a mention.

Have been to Solar Dos Amigos on several occasions and the quality of food varies a lot, from bad to Ok. Depends on how much people there are, if there are many people you will almost certain get raw meat served even if you ask for it well done. If you prefer good autehntic portugese food this is not a place I would reccomend. Yes, you get a lot of food at a low price but that is also all you get........

This is located really far from... well, civilization. You go there to eat and you sure as hell do eat. The portions are HUGE (and I mean HUGE!... a quarter of a portion - and yes, you can ask for a 1/4 portion - feeds 2 people who hadn't had appetizers and won't have dessert or 3 people who had both), really well cooked, their Cozido à Portuguesa has to be the best in the country, their "Cascos" (I think it's bovine, a really nice, tender, part of it) just melt in your mouth, the desserts are amazing (they'll showcase them to you in a rustic basket, a lovely touch) and the price/quality ratio is one of the greatest in the area. I really recommend it - unless you're going there with undisciplined kids. The space it's huge, but crowded and, while the service will be as amazing to you, kids running around such a crowded space will ruin everyone else's meal.

The place is located in the middle of nowhere, so you really need to go there on puropose. The restaurant is huge, the staff really friendly and the food is just great. The portions are huge, and cooked to perfection. In the end, expect to pay around 17€/pax.

The food is great, the wine is great, the portions are huge and the bill is not too large. A hidden gem not overcrowded by tourists.
