    Food good as usual, service excellent as expected. Very good experience. The executive menu is a steal for the food you end up getting. The Secretos de porco were exceptional and mu Akla burguer was amazing. Dessert also very good with roses ice cream. Recommended. The beer was just quite expensive, 7€ each, and it was just a normal sagres. The rest was competitively priced for the quality.

    Aka is an excellent restaurant, the food is really very good as is the service. It is unfortunate that in these covid times the restaurant was quiet as is the Intercontinental Hotel where it is based, but we were there 7-8;30pm on a Monday evening so it’s hard to judge. We last ate here early in the year and quite frankly had forgotten how good it was. We will be back.

    Prices are too high. 6,5€ for a regular beer or 3€ for a expresso are not acceptable prices for a normal restaurant. Food quality is good. Dessert are also very good.

    Amazing staff, we were super well treated, everybody was super friendly and polite. The atmosphere is awesome too, super beautiful hotel and the restaurant is very well decorated. And the food was spot on, we had 2 starters and then the Codfish and the beef tenderloin and both were delicious, and as for desserts we had the chocolate mousse and the passion fruit tart which were both equally delicious. Overall a wonderful experience.

    The location is awesome. Loved the food even if the portion were a big too much. The waiter was very nice to us, he suggested us the typical wine from Portugal.

    Akla has a wide choice of vegetarian and healthy dishes. The food was prepared with an amazing attention to detail and the combination of flavors in one dish is simple and at the same time exceptional - less is more! The Service was outstanding and the mood/decoration is super classy yet comfortable. Totally recommend!

    Excellent food and service, lacks atmosphere perhaps, but that is inevitable as it is within the Intercontinental Hotel
