We ate here twice during a short stay in the area. We were all really pleased with the service ( very friendly), the quality of the food and the cleanliness of the restaurant. It really is a little gem. You do need to book though.

OndaLuz on the entrance to Praia da Luz, near when Rua da Varzea meets the Rua Direita, is a really nice traditional Portuguese Restaurante, know for its fish dishes, but it also has a wide variety of meat and seafood, you should also try the house especial lamb.
