    Fabulous! Upstairs survey of Portuguese cuisine was effective. Downstairs the spacious eight table dining room was elegant and safely isolated. The food and service was exceptional.

    It was a great experience from the very first to the last minute! Started with a "tour" through some of the most regional dishes from some of the locations in Portugal. With the touch of the chefs it was possible to realize the tremendous quality, diversity and originality that was put into every single one of them, The explanations were detailed, funny and the ambience and sympathy of every person made us feel very special. After the tour we were taken to the main dinner room where we had one of the best gastronomic experiences of our lives. We went with the menu "Serra Fora" and we could not be happier with our choice. Every dish was a surprise of mixtures, and an explosion of flavours. Cheers to every member of the team to make this possible. Definitely recommend to everyone and we will be coming back, for sure.

    Great restaurant balancing traditional theatrical and experimental. Every dish was a delight. Only slight disappointment were the wines but understand what and how they were chosen.

    We were surprised at the same beginning of the dinner with a tapas tour of the country, trying different foods from each part of the country served by the chef. Excellent experience, recommend to anyone

    I would give a 20 out of 10. This is the best Michelin star restaurant I have ever eaten at. The staff was absolutely incredible. The food was amazing! The pace of the meal was on point. They went way out of their way to make my anniversary special.

    Every detail was perfectly composed and presented. The restaurant sits in a beautiful landscape and every room allows breathtaking views of the park. That means that the architect made full use of the nature outside and chef made sure that we learned how the local natural products were integrated into our dishes. The experience at LAB was well choreographed featuring the views of nature the clean and clear architecture, not overloaded with decorations, and the well groomed and trained personnel from diverse backgrounds. At all times the personnel was very kind and considerate to the one disabled person in our party and to the two children. We were first led to a second floor level where we were introduced to an excellent Portuguese champagne and then the door opened to a presentation room with a huge window looking south while evening setting sun gave us an almost surreal illumination of a part of a golf course and the park surrounding it. The presentation room had a large table in the middle, and in it was carved the outline of Portugal and its islands. From there we could watch the Sous Chef prepare one amuse Boucher after another featuring recipies

    Outstanding food and experience! Two negative remarks: 1-meal sauces were a bit too salty. 2- wine prices exaggerated.
