We were recommended this restaurant by the reception staff at our resort but the first evening that we attempted to eat there we found that they were full so we made a reservation for the following evening. We subsequently had a very good meal, so much so that we made a further reservation for later in the same week and... More

We wandered in to OndaLuz late on a Saturday evening, forgetting that our favorite restaurant, Chicca's, was closed that day.. Much to our tentative surprise, we were greeted very warmly and immediately ushered to a table. I ordered a chicken dish, while my husband had a vegetable choice. Both were equally satisfying and tasty. The service was generous and relaxed.... More

We have been going to OndaLuz for many years in their previous location as well and it has always been a fantastic experience. The staff are so friendly and welcoming with a great sense of humour as well. Attentive without being obtrusive. The prices are very reasonable for the standard of food and a lovely atmosphere. The chefs work so... More

We received a friendly welcome when we arrived and we're given a choice of table. I had the Portuguese lamb stew which was delicious and my husband had the Portuguese steak which he said was fabulous. Lovely staff, excellent service and would definitely recommend.

Quality food served perfectly and great value for money. Multiple visits over a weeks stay. Desserts to die for despite the way the dessert menu looks

We visit Luz sometimes three times a year for long periods and always visit OndaLuz because we like the food. Even though we have been on several occasions each year we don't seem to be recognised. We visited with friends on Tuesday 3rd January (who had been for dinner on New Year's Eve also) and the welcome was warm and... More

I loved that this restaurant has a warm, cozy feeling and as the dining area opens into the kitchen, you can see all the action and I was transported back... More
