This restaurant is not cheap and it has pretensions.

This was much better as we had a variety of dishes to try. The lobster ravioli was perfectly... More

The Quinta das Lagrimas in Coimbra is one excellent example on how someone can do a Michelin star level restaurant outside the main capital. On top of the excellent menu, you will be surprised by the attention to detail of the service. I will explain with an example. I have been there twice for dinner. My first time there was... More

We were highly disappointed with our garden suite and the reception lady but glad her attitude did not extend to the restaurant. The Arcadas staff were most accommodating and helpful. The ambience sophisticated and the cuisine measured up to the many excellent ratings in TA. The sommelier was knowledgable and recommended an excellent local red. I felt the prices were... More

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
