Description: Midori, the oldest Japanese restaurant in the country, has been totally reinvented and redesigned. In the new Midori, the sophisticated decoration in light gray provides a splendid luminosity to the space, in contrast with the magnificent view of the Sintra Mountains and the exquisite and intimate ambience.

We were staying at Penha Longa donate one night at Midori. It is a beautiful modern Japanese restaurant influenced by Portuguese cuisine - the chef is very passionate about both Japanese cooking methods, having worked in Japan for several years, and his native Sintra cooking and this is an excellent blend. We had the 7 course Midori tasting menu which I would recommend as it gives a perfect balance of all the dishes. Even the pudding was very good! The service is friendly and knowledgeable especially the US born sommelier who is very clear on her excellent recommendations. We would go again if staying in the resort.

One night me and my friends felt like eating asian food so we found this place which seemed good. When we sat down we were not disapointed. The six of us all ate a mixture of sushi and some other japanise food. All of the food was amasing and we were wery pleased with the stuff.

I would definitaly recomend eating here and if you are a wine lover, you would love it even more.

On our recent visit to Midori (Good Friday holiday) we had no option but to experience the buffet because that's what they had on that day. Unfortunately, either our expectations were too high or the restaurant needs to reevaluate their price/quality ratio. The buffet is 58€ per person (no drinks included) and it's all you can eat. However, sashimis are brought on request and they take quite a long time to come. There was a good amount of food choices but nothing any different than what you would find at a regular Japanese buffet in Lisbon. The meat at the hibachi wasn't the best quality either. And the dessert buffet was the biggest letdown: the desserts were too sweet and basically all tasted the same. Nothing unique at all about them.
Service was pretty good and the atmosphere is nice but the price/quality ratio just doesn't make sense. Our bill turned out to be almost 300€ for 4 people (we didn't order any wine or alcoholic beverages) and we left feeling as if we had just eaten at a Japanese buffet that would cost probably half the price, if not less.
It is unfortunate that this restaurant, one of the oldest Japanese ones in Portugal and located in a 5* resort, has such overpriced food for the quality it offers. We're definitely not going back.
