    Outstanding restaurant both in terms of the imagination that goes into the preparation of the individual dishes. I am not so keen on being constrained to accept the chef’s choice of starters and their somewhat rigid menu arrangements leads to over-eating which one tends to regret afterwards. So guests need to ask to be told exactly what is planned so you can make choices and limit the amount of food presented. That includes sides for the main dish which in our case were mostly not eaten.

    This restaurant is a lovely place to eat : discrete, cosy and full of charm. The service was perfect and the food was excellent. It is really nice to have a quality way higher than our expectations.

    Lovely evening, delicious food, brilliant service, sommellier gave very good advice on an excellent bottle of wine from the local region, which paired beautifully, Loved the starters and the four of us all tried different main courses; fantastic Scallops, Lamb, John Dory and Venison. However we did feel that more should have been explained to us about the costs. We were never advised that the oysters offered incurred an additional cost, we learnt about the desserts verbally but not told the cost. and we also did not know the cost of the water which was constantly topped up. It meant the bill was more than we thought it would be, which was a shame because we had had such a lovely meal but felt a bit sharp.

    The food and ambience is perfect. We were disappointed that we were not warned that we were going to be charged 14 euros per person for the selection of starters. Plus we were given endless bottles of water but not warned they were to be charged to our bill - not complimentary! Better communication required.

    Fine dining in an awesome setting. A tasting selection of starters were offered to the table that were a perfect beginning to an unforgettable dinner. Each person selected an entré including lamb leg, scallops and risotto snd John Dory fish with another amazing selection of 5-6 sides. Dessert included crieme brûlée and an almond berry and créeme delight. Outstanding dinner. Not to be missed!!

    Staff were really friendly and welcoming, clearly explaining how the menu worked and suggesting reasonably priced wines to go with our choices. Food was fantastic and starter system was great, wide range of dishes which all tasted fantastic.

    Restaurant was tucked away in a residential side street, but on entering opens up into a spectacular courtyard, staff very welcoming and friendly and food excellent. There is a flow of starters which come a little quickly at times, but the pork starter in particular was beautiful

    We loved our night at A Travessa! We rated it the top meal of our 7 day trip to Portugal. If you prefer a quiet atmosphere, request to be seated inside!

    Service was most professional. The format is a conveyor belt with all having the same about 9 very small appetisers brought to the table, very tasty. During this time, our main course was selected from a menu of 6 fish, 6 meat dishes. I selected baby lamb shank which was good but no finesse, 3 small bowls of vegetables. It was noisy because in the courtyard, the restaurant being on one side, a band was playing, something to do with a museum, with strobe lighting, glad I don’t suffer from migraine. Overall, an experience, pleased we went but we wouldn’t return.

    Appetizers were served too fast. Didn’t appreciate the man different waiters who seemed not to be too enthusiastic about 5heir job and really knowledgeable to make recommendations. Owner took the order of the mains but could have been more enthusiastic. Staff just didn’t match the status the restaurant tries to be. Finished dinner with an ice cold tawny port and after complaining just got a reply from the waiter that he’s not into ports. Could do better. Especially in this price range.
