Quality food served perfectly and great value for money. Multiple visits over a weeks stay. Desserts to die for despite the way the dessert menu looks

We visit Luz sometimes three times a year for long periods and always visit OndaLuz because we like the food. Even though we have been on several occasions each year we don't seem to be recognised. We visited with friends on Tuesday 3rd January (who had been for dinner on New Year's Eve also) and the welcome was warm and... More

I loved that this restaurant has a warm, cozy feeling and as the dining area opens into the kitchen, you can see all the action and I was transported back... More

The menu has plenty of choice - fish, meat skewers, cataplana, duck etc all fairly basically served with chips and salad or boiled pots. and veg. but all good quality and reasonably priced. Staff are really friendly and we enjoyed a meal there on New... More

Here we found that winning combination of good quality food, value for money along with excellent service - but unfortunately, Ondaluz is NOT a secret and you will ALWAYS need to book! Patricio makes you feel so welcome and you are never hurried. The couvert is great, all the fish we had was delicious and the homemade Creme Caramel is... More

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.
