This is arguably the best fine dining restaurant on the Quinta do Lago estate. Principally French cuisine and wine. Excellent food and friendly service.

The enjoyment of a fine meal here is not limited to just your taste buds - the whole experience is to be savoured and enjoyed. Summer dining at Casa Velha is on the gorgeous patio. Fabulous food, sunsets and starlight, and magnificent views across the lake. An experience that is hard to beat.
