First Review by Alex F

This place has it all - Edit

We visited Rouxinol earlier this month. This place has it all, the view was stunning. The staff and food were amazing. The owner took time to explain how they only served their own wine, which the produced themselves. Can wait to return and revisit.

Pros: The view was stunning, The Staff and food were amazing, They produce their own wine

Cons: Knowing when to stop eating and drinking

Expensive and slow service - Edit

We were staying in Monchique and made a special trip to come down to Caldas to eat her. The owner was a little late opening up but we didn't mind waiting.

There was a good selection of clearly labelled vegan options, we got the wok veggies and rice. We had to wait a long time to get our food... the owner did apologise and said it was because they needed to cook the rice (lol....). It was tasty, but not very good value for money.

It was much more expensive than other restaurants in the area, but as we thought it was the only place with vegan options we stumped up. Although later we did find a better alternative in Monchique centre which I'd recommend instead.

No milk alternatives for coffee.

Surprisingly good! - Edit

Lovely taste of the vegan burger, nice place and nice people working there. Could have homemade buns as well.

overpriced and overpowered by BS - Edit

Nice to find vegetarian food in this area but it was average at best with one of our deserts microwave hot and the other still frozen. We paid twice as much for this meal than anywhere else on our holiday and were bothered throughout the meal by the owner who called me patronisingly "my dear"and made all sorts of wild claims about winning silver medals for his cooking in Paris amongst many other what I imagine are tall tales. If you're desperate for something vegetarian in the area as I was then go once but I doubt you'll go back.

An oasis for vegans - Edit

We stopped here by chance for lunch on a trip into the mountains and I was pleasantly surprised to find it had a full page of vegetarian and vegan options. This was surprising as it looks like a typical rustic Portuguese restaurant but is actually run by a friendly Swedish man. I had a home made vegan burger, my friend had an omelette. It is an impressive old hunting lodge ironically, with what is reputed to be the largest fireplace in Portugal. Just past the Monchique spa and before the village.
