This is an understated interesting and good value Restsurant in the medium price range. The menu is excellent. The portions are generous. The cooking is really good. A limited wine menu but reasonably priced is unusual in the restaurants in the area. The staff -...all male it seems- are Uber friendly and pleasant though the front of house older person (he might be in his mid thirties !) could learn a little finesse from the younger waiters. This is certainly a place to visit. Good value in a lovely outdoor setting at this time of year. To lose the music would not be a disadvantage but it is not too disturbing.More

Lovely location for outdoor dining , great service, delicious food, excellent value especially given it's in the golden triangle. So good we returned for our ultimate evening meal. Not easy to find the first time especially as the evening draws in. Definitely needs better signage....I imagine many people drive past completely unaware of the gem they have just missed.More

Good food on a nice environment and with good service. We both had the duck with cherry sauce which was very good on the company of a good Douro wine. For dessert we had the chocolate cake which was also quite delicious. The prices were...quite ok for Quinta do Lago.More

This restaurant ticks all the boxes. We had a lovely evening, sitting outdoors, excellent staff and all the food was delicious, steaks cooked to perfection. Thankyou to all at Cafe Pituxa - you made our last evening in Portugal very special. Hope to return.

On a friends recommendation we went for dinner and was made to feel not just welcome, but really valued as diners. Attentive service from all three young men running the floor was without fault, the food exceptional quality and very affordable, and so would highly...recommend Cata Pituxa. Beautiful gardens and three distinct seating areas gives a feeling of space, we loved it and the food was delicious, piping hot and beautifully presented. Thankyou chef and team.More

The food and service was 5 stars at a 3 star price. My wife had the pork tenderloin stuffed with plums and I had the beef stroganoff over rice. We split the marinated carrots and olives and a nice bottle of wine. We had the...almond mousse and profiteroles for desert. Port wine on the house to wrap up the meal was the icing on the cake. Very nice night out for adults. The quiet upscale ambiance may be more challenging for young children. The service was perfect including the wine recommendation to our taste.More

Have been here quite a few times, it is perfection! We are managing to get through the menu but last night was our favorite choice. Portuguese steak for me and lamb for my husband. Both meals were amazing as usual. The service is so good...with very attentive waiters who know how to treat their clients. Excellent wines and cocktails and last night as it was chilly the fire just made the evening cosy and warm. Beautiful dessert of Apple pie and caramel sauce which is so good but the special puddings last night looked incredible. A pistachio mousse and a lemon cake. Just a perfect evening, the best food in the area by far. Brilliant casa pituxa ! Be back very soon. Keep doing what you are doing because it is so good.More
