Paixa was suggested as an alternative venue for a small group of us and on the face of it the novelty of a Portugese Tapas meal was interesting, having been to a few Spanish Tapas restaurants at home and in Spain. But Paixa is an elegant dining venue, whereas to me tapas has always been a more down to earth... More

Being a good size group is an excellent format to eat in this very well run and elegant tapas restaurant as it is then possible to order a large number of the mainly small dishes, some of which are really interesting. Wine selection is extensive and the quality of service high. One of the much better restaurants in the area.

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.

For wine lovers; Excellent list with many many wines. Some great value to be had here. Do seek the staff's knowledge of local wines. We drank... More
