Set in the ancient kitchens of the Palace of Queluz and contributing to the splendour of the Pousada de Queluz - D. Maria I, the Cozinha Velha Restaurant offers delicious delicacies, according to the most genuine recipes of Portuguese traditional cuisine. Here you will find the ideal environment for a romantic dinner for two, and the strength of character for a successful business lunch. The right place to organize receptions, group meals, festive dinners, banquets or cocktails, offers a capacity of up to 150 sitting and 250 standing. You will also have access to the "Sala Dourada", in the Palace, where you can gather 70 to 100 people and gift them with a memorable reception. The Pousada de Queluz restaurant holds a harp recital every Friday at dinner. Open all week.
It is grand and when we entered we were given the 'grand' treatment by the very competent waiter/manager but, fair does, he later mellowed. The food was good, although it's not cheap, and there are some good wines to match.

This restaurant has some of the qualities a restaurant must have: it has great food, great prices, the staff is friendly and attentive (just talk to Elsa), the service is fast.
However, it is a small restaurant, so you should't expect luxuries, and the table setup is rather uncomfortable (tables are too near each other).

WOW! Another surprisingly good local neighbourhood restaurant in Queluz! Remember standing outside their door, waiting to get in. People kept coming in after we got seated. Four of us for dinner came to just 50.25 Euro!! Really good service too from our young male server.

Once we found this place in the Restaurtores plaza, we went there every night. We had different dishes each night and all were delightful. They spoke good English and the servers were professional as well as friendly. This place was a delight. We ate outside and watched the crowd go by.

Maria Azeitona is a cozy restaurant located in Amadora center - Rua Alfredo Keil. Warm setting, cozy and informal environment and offering some of the most Portuguese traditional recipes and Portuguese tapas. Join us at lunch or dinner time any day of the week! Bom apetite!
We very enjoyed the meal we had here. My father went for 3 of the starters, like tapas. One of his dishes was the curry chicken, which was absolutely amazing. I went for the steak,egg and chips (I can't actually remember the Portuguese name for this, but I believe it is quite a common dish).
The restaurant did not waste any floor space, with tables almost directly next to each other. I suppose this is to cater for the high volume of customers. We had to wait 25 minutes or so, which I thought was quite a lot for a Tuesday (midweek) lunch time!
One thing to watch out on, is when you get to your table there is already bread, goats cheese and olives waiting for you. The cheeky thing is, they then charge you for all of these as soon as you touch them. If you don't want them, make sure to tell the staff so they remove them!
Overall, this was very good and I can definitely recommend.

Went back to Realmente and this is still my favourite restaurant in the area. This time I went for a business lunch and we focused on having just starters and had some wonderful Mussels and an Octopus salad. We also had a great melted cheese.

Based on Trip Advisor reviews, we had no intention of eating here. But on a rainy afternoon the restaurant we wanted to eat in was closed and the Mesa was right next door so.....we hesitantly decided to have lunch. We were ushered upstairs to a lovely. Cozy spot by a very gracious young lady. Soup, salad, wine...all were superb along with the attentive service. It was so good that we returned the next night for dinner which was outstanding.

Founded more than 20 years ago, the restaurant "As Colunas" is a typical space where you can enjoy good snacks, ideal for curious stomachs where tradition and good times reign.
Big surprise the gastronomy experience in "As Comunas" restaurant. Old traditional decoration with delicious starters and very good Portuguese cuisine.
