Another trip to this out of the madding crowd restaurant as the sun went down and fired up the sky and our food was prepared with individual care to create such excellent cuisine. Our tastebuds came alive with every mouthful, rare sirloin of veal, filled with flavour in a pepper sauce, seared tuna steak and confit of duck, served with... More

We are on holidays here and while staying not far from this restaurant, we decided to give it a try as it had many great reviews. This place was amazing. It doesn't look like much from the outside, but once you go into the back area it is very nice. Our wait staff was friendly and efficient. The menu described... More

Gastronome springs to mind when I think of the delicious meal we enjoyed at A Rainha - superb, freshly cooked food, covert out of the ordinary, succulent lamb, everything cooked with flair and flavour. This restaurant has a marvellous atmosphere, stunning views and many gins to start your meal with style. Aromas of Michelin Star. Staff attentive without being overbearing,... More

Good food but more expensive and not as good value as can be found elsewhere locally.Not too much traditional food on offer and would have liked to see the large barbecue being used - have not seen it used the few times we have eaten there

The welcome was warm and we were shown to our pre-booked table only to be impressed by the red wine glasses! The restaurant specialises in locally produced wines and has an impressive list of reds. If our choice was normal, the quality is... More
