Ondaluz is my favourite restaurant in Luz. Great atmosphere, excellent customer service and wonderful food. Really good value for money. It's so popular that you have to book nearly all year round.

I think it's very likely as Patricio there informed me that they was shutting for a break 1st to 18th December. ..This indicates that they will reopen as usual then..Give them a ring and get it booked....

OndaLuz on the entrance to Praia da Luz, near when Rua da Varzea meets the Rua Direita, is a really nice traditional Portuguese Restaurante, know for its fish dishes, but it also has a wide variety of meat and seafood, you should also try the house especial lamb.
