The staff doesn´t look smart dressed. The restaurant ambience should be improved. It looks a little bit cold. They overprice the wines. It is to, to much for the quality they have. You can eat a lot better for the same prices in other places.

Our best evening in Portugal! While staying at the hotel, we decided to have dinner at the restaurant--not something we usually do, but the location of the hotel made it easier to stay onsite. So glad we did!! We all chose one of the three prix fixe menus, which included a delicious amuse bouche from the chef and then the... More

We ate here twice when staying at the hotel. Since the hotel has another, less expensive restaurant, that pretty much tells you all you need to know! The menu is fairly varied, teh food is properly cooked and the service is excellent.

Ate here one night with a group of friends and colleagues and it was a real treat. Sophisticated cooking with Portuguese influence. We had pea soup, followed by perch and then a delicious dessert. Pleasant wine accompanied the meal. The service was good and overall it was an excellent meal. Based within Quinta Das Lagrimas, with history in the air... More

your evening starts with a glass of lovely Portuguese sparkling rose. The food is delicious and beautifully presented. We had a great selection of local wines that were fairly priced. The service was friendly and impeccable.

The food is amazing (do try the set menus instead of à la carte), service good and attentive, ambience elegant. Why it might have lost the Michelin star: the wait for orders at the beginning was quite long and no sommelier (at least that evening).

Very professional and courteous staff. Excellent sommelier, offering a wine list with a wide range of rare wines. Excellent, delicate food, respectful to its portuguese origins. A place to go, whether as a guest of the excellent hotel, or just for a nice cellebration. Worth going.
