Had a lovely dining experience at Xtoria! Really enjoyed the flavors, had lots of vegetarian food to chose from, good wine selection and super friendly staff - what more could you want?

We had a wonderful dinner at Xtoria. A beautiful restaurant with a nice ambiance, located near the harbour. The service is exceptionally good. Very tasteful combinations of food at the different courses. The hostess gave good wine advice, with an eye for the local wineries....The Moscatel with Cognac is highly recommended. We would definitely come back!More

I won’t bore you with descriptions of all the beautifully presented, super fresh, brilliantly cooked local produce… I’ll simply say “just go”. Rute and Bruno know exactly what they are doing and Pedro looked after us in a really friendly and professional manner. Simply superb...and for the quality they skilfully provide, it’s also remarkably good value. Book and go.More

We booked this restaurant based on the TA score but were disappointed: - we started with the 3 oysters but the dressings did not bring any added value: the kimshi f.e. was too spicy, the one withcurrywasn'tspecialenough; I think we would have preferred the plain...ones - our main dish was the ray, the Ray was good but the vanilla rice and maniok it was served with however was rather tasteless - we ended with a chocolate cake of good quality with a delicious caramel paste Our general conclusion is that the welcome and service is very warm and the dishes look very nice but the taste doesn't match.More

Our meal at this restaurant was truly delicious--we ordered a few appetizers which were spectacular followed by our equally fine main dishes. My vegetarian dish was one for the books with flavors that were an extraordinary mix of flavors, textures, and even temperatures. Presentation was...done with care without being fussy. The service was impeccable and genuinely friendly--we spoke at length with the lovely owner. The ambiance at Xtoria is stylish without being pretentious. We were made to feel truly comfortable and genuinely recommend the experience!More
