We visited the park on a Friday and Tamboril was the only open restaurant. As soon as we got there The hostess offered us a table and used the word "refined" several times to describe the restaurant and its food. Quite the contrary it is not refined at all. It is just a normal restaurant where customers are valued proportionally... More

Excellent food in beautiful setting. Healthy fare, cooked with pride and attention to detail using local ingredients. For both vegetarians and non-vegetarians, one always finds something delicious. Open for lunch only, buffet style. Excellent choice of local beers. Friendly service. English not spoken fluently. My favorite table is outside, next to the gardens.

Bar do Ganso is more cozy and much nicer decor. The receptionist may try to discourage you( as she did to me on february... More

You're surrounded by one of the most beautiful parks you have ever been. So, no need to talk about atmosphere because it is something appart. The food is excellent and so is the buffet with plenty of tentations. The service is also very good. Pack your luggage and move, you wont regret the trip.
