Restaurant details
Reviewed 29 September 2018 via mobile

Only open with reservations as your meal is prepared only for you. You have a choice of meat or fish when you reserve. The portions are generous and very tasty. We had both choices. The fish was good, just done with salt and pepper and a healthy platter of potatoes, cabbage and carrots. The pork roast was a bit dry but flavorful with roasted potato fries and pineapple with accompanied orange slices and grapes. The garlic bread with cheese and prosciutto was excellent though! With wine and dessert, all came to 50€. Husband and wife as hosts/cooks were wonderful.

Faznda Das Lajes is about a 30 minute drive south of Santa Cruz. The road is windy and dark at night, so we did not have wine with dinner. So how was the dinner? Excellent! We made reservations and ordered dinner over the phone. Our grilled fish meal came with an appetizer and desert. The entrée, included vegetables, was nicely seasoned very well prepared. The entrée portions were way more than we could eat. This location can be difficult to find. Coming from Santa Cruz, look for the church on the right in Faznda Das Lajes. Once you see the church go about 400 meters. Looking to the right, the house is large and up a ramp. There is a sign for the restaurant, but up the ramp and not easy to see. There is parking up the ramp or on the road below.

I had excellent cheese and cold cuts, a baked fish with delicious potatoes, white wine from the Douro region.
At the end of the meal I could have exploded but I felt it would have been outrageous to leave the smallest bit of food on my plate.
Chef Valentina and her staff are warm people but extremely professional.
Book in advance and let them know your preference (meat or fish): you will not be disappointed.
