Just after arriving at Praia da Luz, we went for lunch and it was a success. Good fixed price, friendly staff, and fast service. Try the chicken with mushroom sauce!

The jazz lunch on Sundays are amazing especially when you are able to eat outside with amazing views of the ocean and a jazz band playing the lunch is a set one of 3 courses with 2 choices. Food is good quality and the staff are very efficient and friendly

We had limited time so I couldn't get the menus of the day which looked fantastic. Instead I got the salmon. It was a nice steak that was grilled to perfection over a wood fire.

Excellent quality! Waitstaff was excellent and very attentive. Prices were higher than we were accustomed to but food was delicious. Would definitely return. I had the tuna salad pictured.

We went here on the last night of our holiday and had a really lovely. It has beautiful views across the sea, and is a magnificent old building. The staff could not have been more lovely. The food was quite expensive, but nice, and they adapted dishes to suit my (very fussy!) requirements.

Lovely old building with stunning views. Food and service could not be faulted. Enjoyable music events some days. Enjoyed both of our visits during our holiday in Luz.

Beautiful views over the ocean and very professional and helpful staff. The food is average and very expensive. It is not well cooked and not served hot which is disappointing

Topp location and view. Place with potential. But the service and food was terrible. Go here for drink and watch the sea, skip the food.
