Great service and extremely clean restaurant. Food & wine was very nice and enjoyed the evening. Quite plain & straight forward cooking, so could do with a few specials!

Had dinner here last week. The service is awful, so slow. They seem to just pack them in with tables so close together we seemed to be wedged in between two other tables. We waited 45 minutes to be served our starter. Another couple walked out rather than wait any longer- so sorry we didn't do the same!!! We'd lost all interest by the time the food arrived. It's kind of fussy and cheffy but the food is very basic. The place needs more staff; both kitchen and waiting staff. Very poor evening. Would not go back

What a lovely little place this is. It is probably off the beaten track for a lot of the resort guests, but was a local night for us.
It is typical Portuguese, with friendly service and great food.
My wife had the Monkfish, with a Shrimp Sauce, which was to die for and I had a perfectly cooked Sirloin Steak, with all the trimmings.
A half bottle of Red completed the night and I would definitely recommend a visit.
It would be best to book as it got pretty busy on the Wednesday night that we went.
For lovely Portuguese food, in a spotless restaurant, this is the place for you.

I really like this restaurant and have been using it ever since they first opened.
I visit Luz three/four times a year and on every occasion make a point of eating there at least twice.
The food is good and the price you pay for the food and wine makes it excellent value.
However they seem to have become victims of their own success.
Nowadays more often than not they are full and as they still only have the same number of waiting staff as when they first opened the service standard has declined.
On my last visit it took 15 minutes to get a drink and 30 minutes to get the starter.
Hopefully they will recognize they have a problem and rectify it.
Will I go there again. Absolutely

After a long day struggling to get our holiday started, where else is there to go? Open until midnight, it's the only place guaranteed to be open - still giving the consistent food and service that we expect any day and any time. Sea Bass char grilled to perfection (twice), chicken piri piri and spaghetti bolognese devoured by the 9 yr old. Just magic. We arrived shortly after 10, bags still in car. Stumbled out just before 11.30, happy to be back in Praia da Luz once again. Thanks to Carlos and OndaLuz.
