    We had a superb tasting menu at Casa Velha - every course was delicious. The staff were friendly yet professional and ensured we had a great time on our visit for our anniversary meal. Highly recommended - it really should have a Michelin star based on our previous experiences at restaurants with this accolade.

    This has to be the best restaurant we have been to. The food is outstanding, with service to match. We go back regularly, and it never disappoints!

    The quality of welcome, service at the table and succulent food is the best in Quinta Do Lago, by far. However the only criticism I have is the menu is too restrictive. We chose the €95 Epicure menu and the choice for. Ian course is either a cod fish or a pork dish. Both delicious but I believe a greater selection should be available. When I pointed this out to the chef he gave me a very long explanation that if we call them in advance they can prepare something else for us, Fine, but what? If we don't know what they can actually offer and prepare apart from these??? Aside from this small shortcoming I still maintain this is a fantastic restaurant.

    The food was simply superb. The foils gras with chocolate is a marriage made in heaven. The presentation of all dishes was excellent, and the pairing of flavours worked well. This is a chef on the way to a Michelin star

    Beautiful location, excellent service and wonderful food. We came here for my partner’s birthday and it was the perfect night. The team made a special effort and made us feel very lucky.

    Besides the unbelievable setting and atmosphere on the terrace amidst massive olive trees, the new focus on each course being influenced by a different Portuguese region with local sourcing is fantastic. We’ve come to Casa Velha every summer and will continue to do so

    The whole evening is a wonderful experience. The staff are so welcoming, the restaurant is beautiful and if the weather is good then the tables outside are very special. The food is absolutely amazing and never fails to impress. The little perfectly made canapés, the presentation and even the crockery all add to the occasion. I always look forward to going to Casa Velha and always leave saying that it was a prefect evening.

    This was our fourth visit to CV. Service is always excellent. We had the 4 course tasting menu with wine. Be prepared for very small portions even with only 4 courses. The wine pairing is varied - though 2 of the wines I disliked intensely and had to ask for alternatives. This was done without question. Always a lovely evening, though for myself the food on this occasion was disappointing.

    Booked on Fork, your wonderful website. However Casa Velha has no idea we were arriving for our ‘meal’. After an hour and a half wait we received our starters, for most of it to be poured on ourselves by a poor waiter. After our mains arrived which were extremely disappointing in comparison to the many times we have been to Casa Velha under Celene’s management, we were very underwhelmed. Overall a disappointing evening, unfortunately not up to past standards. It would appear under Qunita Do Lago’s management restaurant standards are starting to slip.
