My wife and I had a wonderful meal at Pena last night. My beef wellington was done to perfection and the salmon en croute was wonderful. Beautiful setting with great views over the valley. Well worth seeking out this gem of a restaurant.

Located in a former distillery and inserted into the surrounding space of the Quinta da Pena, in Vila Caiz - Amarante, the "Pena - Restaurant & Bar" results from the rehabilitation of a historic space with a contemporary language. In a familiar environment, the space is divided between the living room set in the very mill, the bar-cellar suitable for a winter afternoon by the fireplace and a large terrace that invites you to taste the house cocktails or dinner on the patio and under a candlelight on the hot summer nights. The gastronomy of the house will take you to the flavors so characteristic of our region, coupled with its outstanding creativity. In a refined place in its rusticity, the customer finds the flavors of the house and the region and also enjoys the tranquility reflected by the surrounding space consisting of the manor house and its gardens, the woods and several secular acre farms. More than just a meal, we want you to live a unique moment. Make yourself at home ...
