We ate here twice last week- we enjoyed it so much the first time we went back another night! The food both times was delicious and beautifully presented - although some of my choices the second time were a little rich for my palate. The staff are exceptional in their friendliness and attention to detail. This however does mean you... More

An excellent restaurant that provides choice and top quality food. The restaurant itself is small but the service is welcoming and of the highest quality. Good menu selection and a very good wine list. Prices are reasonable but not cheap and you will not be disapointed. Booking recommended.

Sergio and his brother run this quaint restaurant in Praia da Luz I would have to say the food and service were excellent Sergio cooks and also serves the tables and his attention to detail is superb it's a small restaurant only has tables for about 20/25 people so worth booking You will not be disappointed

We have been here lots over the years and we return because the quality of food and the friendliness of the staff is terrific. However the menu is becoming boring and needs a refresh ,if you are there frequently. The service is attentive but can be very slow if everyone arrives at once. Last week an hour between main and...

As you will probably read in other reviews this restaurant is hidden away and would be seen as as a local coffee shop from the outside, but this place is truly amazing. We dined here twice on our last visit to Luz, and the food is impeccable. The owner/head chef has a real eye for detail, and will only deliver... More

After a bit of a struggle finding this restaurant, it was definitely worth it! From start to finish we were made to feel unbelievably welcome by our lovely waiter and the food was second to none we've had in Luz. Add it to your list of must see restaurants and you won't regret it.

Thank AshKate139
