“Don't eat all day before you go!”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

Delicious, tasty and extremely very filling food. Never had south african food before but after this highly recommend. Is expensive but portions are massive, service great and great choice of beers. Lovely family atmosphere. Gets a bit hot inside - but that could just be the meat sweats! Not sure how many veggie options there are, very meat orientated. Well worth a visit. Very busy - so book before you go.

“Great meat!”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

The food is beautifully presented, top quality and extremely tasty, the reviewer who said it was 'bland' must have been suffering from influenza! The hot and spicy meat starter was brilliant, the ribs were brilliant and the fillet steak was declared the best my daughter had ever tasted, very tender but still with flavour.

“Everything was just right.”
Reviewed April 10, 2013 via mobile

After a tiring day with Portugal's worst real estate agent, The Dolphin Restaurant was exactly the experience we needed. Friendly greeting, excellent menu, the waiters were attentive and helpful without being overbearing and the food was exceptional. We cannot wait to visit again.

“Top Class”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

We have visited here several times before and found it good but this time they have upped their game again and I think it is now the best in Luz. The welcome was friendly and the service was faultless. A big ope fire made it very cosy. The owners have now a more hands on approach The food and atmosphere were top class and they have kept their prices reasonable. Other places in Luz take note.
