    We visited this restaurant on new years eve and it was the perfect choice. We were not too convinced by the typical local cuisine we tasted the days before and Cas Velha seemed to be a very positive exception. The cuisine was more inspired by French and Italian inluences. Foie gras ( very good fit with Masal Vine!) , tuna tartar, pasta with scallops and Chateaubriand and delicious deserst ( mago gratiin!) everything was perfect. The service was very attentive and friendly. The price was much lower than what you would expect for such a high quality. We can highly recommend this restaurant!

    Lovely traditional restaurant. The service was impeccable - very friendly and attentive. Food was excellent - a little amuse-bouche to start and a pastel de nata to finish was a lovely touch. Would definitely go again.

    Great restaurant, superb food and friendly staff. The chateaubriand was perfectly cooked and melted in the mouth. Creme Brûlée’ was delicious. A great evening spent in a great environment. We will return and encourage others to sample the restaurant.

    Excellent food & service. A little background music would have enhanced the evening as it was quiet. Would definitely recommend & will be visiting again!

    A very nice meal and the staff very attentive and helpful. A little quite though but probably due to the COVID situation. Some background music wouldn’t have gone amiss. All in all though a good evening out for a reasonable price.

    We had a good evening. The food was enjoyable but the main course could have been hotter, strange as we were the first people to arrive. The desserts were excellent.
