What a fantastic first dinner in Portugal! The Gold dinner for two had four different steaks, five sides... Of which the spiced black beans were terrific. Comes with various sauces for the meat, but the meat was so flavorful you didn't need the sauces,. A nice bottle of regional wine and a tawny port completed the meal. Wow...just wow!

Poco Do Ze

Reviewed By SandyEaston

Let me tell you that around this area there are any number of good value restaurants serving plain but good wholesome food for prices that make you wonder how they can do it. Yet this wee place stands out from the rest in terms of value, views, service and friendliness!You are not going to be ordering anything fancy but if you want homemade good local food then , for instance, their fried chicken n chips portugese style will set you back about €6 ! The vinho da casa is served in jugs ( jarro litre or half litre) and is very drinkable. Two people, litre of red, chicken for one , bitoque for the other, pudding to share , oh and before that the usual bread n olives to start will set you back about €11 in total! The views over the valleys from the huge windows are wonderful and the staff are friendly! In the typical café bar at the front you can listen to the echo of some colourful local vernacular " hey Pitou, comesta?" Etc with lots of laughter going on at end of a working day as a beer or two slip down.Find it and enjoy !

Solar Dos Amigos

Reviewed By jumblemo

Occasionally small Portuguese family-run restaurants have the capacity to surprise with authentic good value meals, there are several to be discovered in this area like Manelvina and Janeca. But Solar dos Amigos more than surprises, it’s off the scale in terms of quality, value and service, and most importantly the food is delicious.The style of the restaurant is like being in a sprawling farmhouse, and it’s dining rooms have a traditional feel with horses and horsemanship as a theme throughout but the charcoal grill takes centre stage. Additionally there is a really well stocked bar with a good range of gins and a wine list that caters from bargain bottles to fine wine. On arrival at our table a bag of hot bread and the non-obligatory platter of delicacies was just a sign of things to come. Slices of smoked chourico, olives, fig conserve, cheesy cod fritters, 3 cheeses and 2 cold meats, washed down with a litre of dark berry laden Sangria Espumante served as warning to loosen our trouser belts, and cost the restaurant our starter order.We decided on the beef rib steak and grilled cod mains, but on the advice of Luís our waiter, wine guide and owner’s grandson, who suggested one main course between 2 would be ample, we saved the cod for our next visit and chose the beef.And that beef was superb; thickly sliced and perfectly seasoned, hot and chargrilled exterior, yet a tender deep red interior. Easily a match for the best Argentinian parilla-cooked rib-eye, and plenty for 2.With the meat came hot crispy salty chips, and small bowls of rice, and beans, and roast sweet potato, and green veg.This amazing feast was followed by a selection of fantastic homemade desserts. Though personally I was finished...I couldn’t manage another mouthful. This amazing meal including a litre of Sangria each, came to €37 per person including tip. (Note it is cash only - no cards)I can’t recommend it highly enough nor can we wait to go back.

Very nice people and terrace, great for young kids, since they can play in the sand in front of the terrace. The coffee (cappuccino) came from a package, not fresh.. we didn’t had food, so it might be good for everything else but cappuccino.Olá bom dia,Certamente alguma coisa correu mal.Quero convida-lá a voltar e mudar a sua opinião.Muito obrigado pela avaliação, só assim poderemos melhor para servir cada dia melhor.
