Our favourite restaurant. Yes you may have to wait a little but great atmosphere, and service. Wonderful food and very good prices and complimentary glass of port. Great family run restaurant.

A very good fish restaurant which also offers a wide selection of dishes. Very helpful and attentive and busy staff. Sometimes it can be a lengthy wait for service which would be helped by the addition of more serving staff. However this restaurant is held in high regard and the number of patrons would suggest they are getting something right.

Visited on two occasions,food quality very good but the wait is far too long from sitting down to getting the menus then waiting for the drinks and finally getting the food . Only two waiters who were very customer friendly but rushed off their feet. We had booked on both occasions as it is always busy. Lighting too bright,lacked intimacy.... More

We enjoyed a delicious meal at OndaLuz on 20th October, everything was just perfect, the staff, food, atmosphere, we just can't recommend it enough. We stayed a week in Luz and it was the only restaurant we had to book - that says it all! Thank you

OndaLuz is where we always go on our first night in Luz , and as always the quality of the food is excellent , the service from Patrice would not be out of place in a top 5 star restaurant. Would highly recommend the Monk fish kebab, Portuguese steak and the personal service from the team at the restaurant. The... More
