Considering the beauty of this small town, one would expect this restaurant to be better. It is just average - both in terms of food and the efficiency of the staff. The location is great, with a beautiful view from the windows ... but food...More

One of the few downsdes of staying in Marvao is that you are somewhat restricted in places to eat. Varanda though is worth a visit (we went twice while there in September) and ate a variety of good home cooked food and reasonably priced wine....More

This was a pleasant surprise. Expensive fit out and great feel. Good wine, an interested waiter and some very good cod and scrambled eggs. The Branco Presion wine was inexpensive and excellent. The owner seemed to sit downstairs and be disinterested..probably a good thing

OCTOPUS, Go for the broiled octopus in local Marvao Olive oil and garlic. I had it on August 1, 2015 and July 23 2017. And I will have it again next time. Sea bream, Gazpacho and Coriander soup and assorted 'sausage' also excellent.
