Beautiful restaurant, modern but with old features. Very welcoming, attentive and well informed staff. This is advertised as a tapas restaurant but definitely with a twist! Very interesting, different food, beautifully presented. Lots of small dishes, we'll know better next time what to order and how much! A very enjoyable evening.

We visited Paixa twice during our 2 week holiday in Val do Lobo. On both occasions had a fabulous evening, great food, service and very attentive staff. We ate outside on the patio area which was lovely this time of year.

I don't understand why... More

My wife and I are regular visitors to Paixa yet last nights meal was exceptional. Every tapas dish was of high quality and the family loved the food and the wines that were recommended. Combine great food with very good service in a great atmosphere and it is a formula for a good evening. Bem feito Joao.
