We ate here with our hiking tour group and were impressed with the ambiance and expertly prepared Portuguese cuisine. The mixed green salad with fresh cheese, bread salad, black pork, sea bass, and seared tuna were truly amazing, and followed by equally amazing desserts. We were so impressed that we returned the next night, reordered most of the same dishes,... More

Beautiful restaurant with top quality food. Ate there 2 nights in a row since we thought any other place in town would be a disapointment on the second night in town.

Very lucky to get a table for two on a February Friday night off-season. Our waiter did a great job serving us in a timely manner. My wife had the Peixe Galo and I had Arroz de Ameijoa. Pre meal we had olives and bread and a bottle of vinho verde. Total was €60. Live music begins after 10. We... More

Recently a small group of women travellers had the great pleasure of having our noon meal at this establishment. We were initially invited to a selection of appetizers in the front bar/pub. The restaurant has the atmosphere and ambience of yesteryear, complete with a roaring fire in the original stone fireplace. Excellent wines accompanied the local and completely "homemade" food....

Very Nice place to go to! We had a lovely diner and the service was great. A lot of wines to choose from and the atmosphere was warm & cosy. It really feels like home.

Very nice spot in Milfontes, a lot to choose from the menu, great food, should be nice to have a sommelier to help with so many wine references. Good service too.

We made a reservation for 19:30 and thus were the first couple. This meant that the staff had time to explain things to us. We went to their fish display and ended up with 2 dishes that weren't on the English menu - monkfish and shrimp skewer with mixed vegetables and fillets of a big fish with tomato rice both... More

We arrived early, but with no reservation and they still managed a table for two in a busy Friday night. The food is traditional and really good. If "Sarrajão au Dijon" is on the menu you must try it. It's a contemporary fish dish, unexpected at this traditional restaurant, but I would go back and eat it again, and again.... More

On recent visit to Vila Nova de Milfontes had dinner in this restaurant. Food and wine were really very good. Great flavours and well cooked meals. The only disappointment were the staff who were not friendly and standoff. Would certainly return for the food but please guys could we lighten up a bit and a friendly smile would go a... More

Enjoyed several meals at this comfortable spot. Fresh and well cooked seafood. Intriguing Alentejano specialties. Very friendly service. Superior wine list - so many Portuguese bottles to try.
