Only with gps you get there - but it's worth every penny! The place is amazing. A very elegant place. A very good service with attention for the details. And the food... I tried an amazing pernil de porco, it felt like it was crumbling on my mouth. The best one ever. Go there.

It can be a bit tedious getting to the place with GPS guiding the way that might lead to those little and weird passages. Anyway, this place is really a special one. The house is beautiful and well decorated. The owner surely has exceptional taste. People are nice. Food was excellent. Had beef wellington and octopus and they were just... More

I had a birthday lunch at Restaurante Pena and it was just one of the best birthday ever, I can say. The restaurant has a very high quality food and the surroundings are something from another world. It is a very quiet place with a stunning outer space and beautiful horses. Don't forget to see the big rockets and the... More

Despite the fact that I read reviews on this restaurant and knew that it could be tricky to get there I took the hit and followed thie GPS on my rental car and ended up traversing the mountain to get there. So if you go make sure you adjust your navigation properly so it does not take you in a... More

Great restaurant in fabulous surroundings. Food was outstanding quality, from the scallops to the panacotta. We sat outside under the grape vines - fantastic meal!

I never thought I'd spend three hours having lunch without noticing the time passing by. Atmosphere was very relaxing. Terrace roof made of grapes leaves is a great solution when the sun is at its' zenith. I highly recommend salmon tartare, duck and mushroom risotto. Restaurant has quite some collection of vine as well as homemade lemonade. 5+

We had a very positive experience with Restaurante Pena. Our expectations were already high at the start (it's marked as one of best in Amarante region by trip advisor) but still we were very surprised by how stylish and elegant the ambience of the restaurant was.

We loved the food and ambiance. Take the main road! Our GPS sent us via mountain road. Call the restaurant and they will tell you how to get there

It was hard to find restaurant Pena, because we went the mountain road. If you instead are going via the main road its much easier. The first impression of the restaurant was very nice, with grapes hanging in the entrance and the owner welcoming us. We couldn't believe the prices for the food and wine, which was outstanding!

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 ...
