I think we had been here before ten years ago but it has expanded a lot. But the service for a large restaurant was excellent. Very attentive but not fussy. Just seemed very well organised. The food was very good - sea bass, and the better red wine (choice of 2) by the glass was a generous portion and good quality. My wife also enjoyed her Sauvignon blanc. Overall a very good experience in a lovely inland setting

Thank Richard M

It just seems to get better and better. Adalino and Paulo are the best hosts in the area and make you feel special every time - even if you haven't visited since last year! If you haven't tried this restaurant, you must. Yes, it is expensive, but worth it. We will be back again soon.

The evening was fantastic, delightful waiter/sommelier who created great g and t cocktails and a special Kailua coffee. My sea bass wS divine and my husband loved the chicken curry . It is magical to sit in their gardens , view the stars and soak up the atmosphere. We will be back!

This restaurant is always busy so it must be good. However, it failed to impress me. i was greeted like the "prodigal son" never having been in the place which aroused perhaps an unfair suspicion that this was a a restaurant of more style than substance. That feeling grew when not a single server seemed au fait with the menu items and could offer little explanation. The concentration on idle chit chat by the waiter meant that wine aimed at the glass hit the tablecloth.
The starter of a vegetable pancake was bland in the extreme and the vegetables unidentifiable. Bland best describes the cooking. A main course of Pork Medallions "Portuguese Style" conjured up a vision of spice and excitement. The result was devoid of taste. The cheese and the coffee were ok. Overall, this was a disappointing experience.
