My husband and I went for weekday lunch. It was comfortable and very relaxing. The service was good and the food delicious. The presentation lovely and very professional. If you approach from the Calcade do Galvao, you may enter the garden free. The restaurant is air conditioned in this heat a definite plus.

We were looking for a place to have a dinner for the family after the christening of our chidren, and this would have been the perfect place for it, but unfortunately it was taken for the day for a wedding. They only open the big restaurant for special occasions, and the small restaurant opened every day is small, with a... More

This place is one of the best restaurants to have an incredible brunch/very complete lunch. It has a great diversity of hot and cold dishes, including see food, natural juices, and very good deserts. The brunch is only served on weekends and prior reservation is very advisable. After or prior to having brunch/lunch, do not forget to visit the very... More

Had lunch in this beautiful location with a group of around 20 people. the dishes were great, the wine complemented the food and the service was really excellent. Can't say much about the prices, but I think it's worth it's value. Certainly worth a visit.

We went to Estufa Real for breakfast. The place is quite panoramic with views of the beautiful gardens outside. In addition to the botanic species in the botanic garden, there are a few beautiful peacocks. After we parked the car, we went to the restaurant and the whole check-in process was quite chaotic. Guests would get in without signing in... More

Not cheap at almost 40 euro a person including a glass of bubbles and water, but worth every penny. The ambience, the comfort and peace are special. The buffet is very well presented and lots of choice. Oysters, smoked salmon, eggs, filet steak, bacalhau, a dozen of well resented salads and more than a dozen of desserts. I would almost... More

We read in the guide book about this restaurant in the Ajuda Botanical Garden. It's a trek. We called from the Belem Tower to here. It's a steep climb uphill. You can take a bus or a taxi. The gardens were beautiful and the food was great. My only complaint is the place needs maintenance. You expect at a party... More

Very nice place not advertised at all, beautiful gardens, and great food, the only thing is to find it, 2 entries and both quiet difficult to find. But bear in mind which day and time you are going as they sometimes close the restaurant for events. It was a Good surprise.

For a fix price you get great food in a cosy but elegant salon with a feeling of being in a big celebration. Service is very pleasant and has a quiet atmosphere.

I rate Estufa Real as excellent because of the all around value that it delivers. Estufa Real is known for its Sunday brunch and rightly so, The food is of very good quality with a large selection of fish, meat, salads, deserts, etc. Service was outstanding and the price exceptional for what was on offer. To add to this the... More
