We have eaten at Dom Diniz on five or six occasions, the owner is very proud of her beautiful restaurant and rightly so. The exterior appearance belies the delightful dining room, the open kitchen is exceptionally clean. All the staff, especially Adrianna(?) are friendly and polite. The Chicken Curry, Kebabs, Sea Bass and Seafood Rice are all excellent and on... More

All fairly priced. The owner is very nice and showed us her wine cellar. Very impressive! Her chef has been there for over 20 years which tells... More

My husband and I had supper here on our last night in Portugal. This restaurant has lovely atmosphere and the owner and Adrianna, with her sweet personality, were lovely hosts. I had the mixed meat kebab served with mixed vegetables and my husband had beef stroganoff. Both meals were great and the wine was great too. The owner told me... More

Excellent Service, the owner opened up for us half an hour early, despite still eating her own meal. Service was very good throughout the meal. Close to the road for some tables but not a busy road. Food was fairly simple but tasty and good value.

We ate here once during our holiday. All in all it was a good experience. The service was good, you can see into the kitchen which was absolutely spotless. We sat inside and the restaurant had a good atmosphere and the decor was quite traditional. The host was delightful and there were clearly a number of returning customers. My only... More
