I just re-read my enthusiastic review from 2014. Oh, the dreams of youth, the wild imaginings of another time... Back on earth I have re-visited the restaurant twice and both were a real disappointment. The location is still lovely (if very hard to find without GPS/SatNav) and the service friendly but the menu and food are just plain ordinary if... More

We were very pleased with the food we ordered. But the starter surprised us with the variety and quality for a ridiculous price. I've eaten fillets of rooster fish and it was hot and delicious. My wife asked for a black pig speciality. The dessert was ok. For the wine you have a lot where to choose from. But you... More

Unique décor, friendly staff, but most importantly - wonderful cuisine. And at an extremely reasonable price; it's not much more than other local restaurants but definitely a step above. Some very creative takes on traditional Portuguese meals. Highly recommended for business, family, or date night. Be aware that parking isn't the most convenient, but that's a small price to pay...

We have been to this restaurant a few times and always enjoyed the food. This time there were twelve of us for lunch, as usual the service and attention to detail were perfect. None of our friends had been to this restaurant before but everyone agreed that the food, setting, décor and ambience was wonderful. There is only one sitting... More

Great views of the surrounding area as you approach the restaurant. A somewhat unprepossessing front masks an attractive interior well set out and interestingly decorated. A good selection of Portuguese food available served by smartly dressed, professional staff, all eager to please. The owner Dona Evalina also delivers service with a smile and makes sure things run as they should.... More

The ambient e something you can only imagine when you see the photos... being there a all new experience. Amazing service, with fantastic menu. At "O Cabeço" you can expect your mouth to be presented with balanced but unique flavors. Great wine and gin menu. The all experience is amazing.
