“A great restaurant.”
Reviewed April 20, 2014 via mobile

In my eyes this was the best restaurant that we ate at in Luz. The food was excellent and we had a wonderful evening. I really enjoyed my scallops and beef stroganoff. It is a small and intimate restaurant. Would definitely go back if ever return to Luz.

“The best in Luz by far”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

The quality of the food, service and staff at this excellent restaurant are in sharp contrast to the location of it, which could easily put off any potential customers who might happen to walk past. This restaurant is far and away the best restaurant in Luz and indeed the surrounding areas. It's small, intimate, immaculately clean and with a comparatively small menu, but everything is prepared to an excellent standard with imagination and flair and without fuss. We've been numerous times and the standard never drops an inch. The fact that even in low season when you walk past virtually empty local competitors , you may well still need to make a reservation to get a seat here is testament itself. The brothers that own/run the place are both modest and charming simultaneously, and deserve the success that they enjoy. If this restaurant was in London you'd be waiting weeks for a seat and paying a ridiculous premium to boot. In some ways I'm reluctant to promote the place, at the risk of not getting a seat again, but it's worth people going, and certainly worth a drive out, should you be in an around this area.

“Exceptionally good restaurant”
Reviewed February 23, 2014

In our opinion, the best restaurant in Luz. Run by two brothers, this place is a delight.
With only 24 covers and a floor area of about 70m2, this manages to be an intimate dining spot.
The quality, presentation, ambience and service were excellent. It compares with Vista Alegre in Lagos.
We started with the couvert which consisted of several plates containing such things as mussels in cheese sauce, caviare on small biscuits, and cured ham. €3.50/head.
Flambeed prawns in garlic butter and brandy was served on a bed of boiled rice and was a real treat at €9.0
We all had saddle of lamb which arrived exactly as ordered and in a generous quantity. In common with most Portuguese restaurants, you will not be overwhelmed with vegetables, but hey, you can have those at home!
Wine is not cheap. As an example, a bottle of Casal Garcia is €13. In the supermarket it is €3.30.
With coffee and brandy, the meal came to €178 for four persons.

“Back again!”
Reviewed December 30, 2013

Back again! Once more, food and service exceeded expectations. Simply cannot fault Aquario. It's not the cheapest place, but it is definitely the best in Luz, and in Lagos too. More than a meal, it's a dining experience . Beef Wellington is to die for and cooked exactly to your liking.Well done guys, keep up the good work.
