This is without doubt the best restaurant in Quinta do Lago. The service was very good and the food absolutely delicious. The restaurant is very elegant and tastefully decorated. Definitely worth a return visit on our next trip to Quinta.

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.
