A great experience from start to finish!
Having read the reviews here we sought out Aquario one evening and were lucky to be able to book for later in the week, you will not be able to walk in and get a table. The food was divine and the service attentive but not in your face. Looking forward to booking on my next trip to the area.

A huge thank you to Sergio and Victor for the wonderful food which we have enjoyed on our many visits to this pretty village. It has always been a great pleasure to receive such a warm welcome, followed by an excellent, beautifully presented, superbly cooked meal. The rack of lamb must rate amongst the best we have ever tasted anywhere! We wish you both all the very best for the future with continuing success and are delighted that we found your restaurant on our first visit to Luz in 2014.

Aquario, a Michelin recommended restaurant in Praia Da Luz and deserves it!

We have been to this restaurant several times over the last four years and has been excellent every time. This restaurant is tucked away from the touristy area of Praia Da Luz, but is worth seeking out. We had dinner last night and as always it was exceptional, both the food and the service. Victor does his magic in the kitchen and his brother Sergio greets you and gives you his personal attention the rest of the evening. Be sure to order the couvert; it is always special. Last night we had bread, cracker with a fried quail egg on it, some finely shaved roast beef with an orangey jam on top, A small wheel of fried goat cheese with honey on top, and oyster with mignonette , and finally an octopus terrine which was absolutely delicious. So tender and tasty it was unbelievable. Then we had our appetizers coquille St Jacques and shrimp vol au vent. Several nice size scallops seared perfectly on a bed of slivers of zucchini, carrots and other vegetables. The shrimp were in a beautiful puff pastry with a creamy leek sauce. The main courses of rack of lamb and Beef Wellington. The lamb can be ordered with mint sauce but we chose the rosemary sauce. It was cooked to perfection and the presentation was fabulous. The beef Wellington was cooked exactly to order a generous portion of mushroom pate between the beef and the perfectly cooked puff pastry. No room for dessert but we enjoyed a complementary aperitif. With a couple of glasses of white wine to go with the first courses and a bottle of house wine and a bottle of water the bill came to just over €100. Well worth it and recommend this restaurant to everyone.

Fantastic restaurant. Michelen Guide Recommended again and well worth the award. Cover should not be missed, not the normal 'paste' and olives! Staff are amazing and nothing too much trouble. Small and intimate just up the hill from Spar. Nothing else quite like it in Luz!
