This is fine dining without the price tag. Waiting staff in dinner jackets. Matching crockery and pristine table cloths. Antiques and artworks that would be equally at home on the set of Downton Abbey. We turned up without a reservation and were anxious whether we'd...More

Description
Description: Since 1974, Chanquinhas in Leca da Palmeira, housed in a former manor house is distinguished by the quality of the food and the wine list quite complete. A sophisticated and refined space where luxury is not, however, synonymous with elitism. A tastefully decorated, concerned with the cult of detail. Old palace, it still keeps some traits reminiscent of the recent past that gives this restaurant a certain aura, decor aside, prevails as the reference for its traditional cuisine, restaurant where the flavors of Portugal are present in each dish!
