Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Overall the experience was positive. Our fish was good, although they took one that was too big for two. I was not too impressed by their rice, but probably its personal taste. It costs a bit more than the other places around, but I do...not really see a big difference in the food to justify that. Probably it would be worth going again to try other dishes.More

Having phoned ahead, to ensure there was space before we walked to the restaurant, it was a surprise to arrive 20 minutes later to be told we hadn’t booked! After explaining that I had just phoned, I was asked to prove it. I showed my...phone record displaying the number, to be told they had to match it their end and he wanted my phone number (which I gave happily). After a good 10 minutes, we were shown to a table (there were quite a few available). The waiters looked thoroughly miserable; we were served by 3 different waiters. We ordered wine and the grilled fish of the day (Dorada) for 2 people, followed by salted caramel cheesecake. The food and wine were supurb, however we had to fill our own wine glasses and fillet our own fish, which surprised me for a Michelin restaurant with prices to match! On the whole - we had a lovely evening and the food was good.More

We didn’t have a reservation, but they provide a table for us, Nice gesture. They have a great food, good ambience and was very busy, so customer service was a little slow. It was a celebration for my birthday. We will come back sooner.

Just amazing! We are a couple and 2 16yr at olds and were all blown away! Fabulous service, amazing wine and a full restaurant right where the fishing area is. Cataplana and the codfish and my daughter absolutely raved about hers and loved our Cataplana....Wonderful and very reasonable for what we had. An absolute must to visit. Outstanding and congratulations - I can see why you get your Michelin rating every year.More

This was an unexpected gem. It was around the corner from where we were staying and we took a chance. The ambience was lovely, although there were odd videos of fashion models, but I guess that's their idea of hip. We ordered a seafood casserole...for two and it was not only delicious, there was enough left over for dinner the next night! Our waiter was adorable and we felt well taken care of. Such fun!More

My wife and I ate at the Tasquinha da Linda in Viana do Castelo during a holiday in northern Portugal. The restaurant is located on the riverfront and naturally focuses on sea food. Our dinner was good, although we felt that there could have been...more vegetables. Prices at the higher end for the area, but to be expected. As the restaurant is usually busy, it is worth booking in advance.More

Having been here on our last visit to Viana we booked again to celebrate my special birthday. We ordered 3 each of the little prawn patties as starters but only one plate of 3 arrived so had to re-order the 2nd plate eventually when it...arrived and I had just started it a waiter came wanting to clear everything to make space for the main meal so had to grab quickly so the plates could be cleared. We ordered the special mixed sea food platter at 90€ unfortunately the Crab had no meat at all even in the spindly legs, there were Goose Barnacles this time which were not nice even if Spain & Portugal see them as a delicacy and last but by no means least they had forgotten the Lobster! We did eat the mussels, clams, oysters, razor fish and prawns which were delicious but the main item we later realised was missing - Lobster. We were given apologise and offered the Lobster but we had finished and so accepted a small reduction of 18€ which I suppose made up for the 20€ charged for my husbands one malt whisky. The staff were as always very good, helpful & apologetic but the experience was spoilt this time.More

I booked dinner for 9 of us to celebrate my birthday. Prices were higher than similar restaurants we’d been to but the food was very good so we were happy to pay more. However we were very shocked when they charged us 10 euro each...for a small glass of port. At the end of the meal they had brought the bottle to the table and asked us if we’d like some. We would never have agreed if we had been told the price. We left feeling right royally ripped off. So beware.More

A really horrible atmosphere created by the waiters. Really rushed and abrupt service, with barely a word spoken to us throughout the whole meal. The waiter couldn’t explain any of the deserts in English or Spanish so we asked if we could see the menu...so that we could understand what options there were but he refused to bring it to us. At the end, the waiter took our payment and just left without saying a word again! Absolutely bizzare experience and certainly wouldn’t recommend people spend time and money in a restaurant that treats them like that. The food wasn’t anything special on top of the horrendous service. Un ambiente realmente horrible creado por los camareros. Servicio realmente apresurado y abrupto, sin apenas hablarnos una palabra durante toda la comida y cuando traían los platos. Cuando preguntamos sobre los postres al final, el camarero no pudo explicar ninguno de los postres en inglés o español, pero se negó a traer el menú para que pudiéramos entender qué opciones había. A final, cuando pagamos por la cuenta el camarero no nos dió las gracias ni nos despidió/dijo adiós! Una experiencia absolutamente extraña y ciertamente no recomendaría que la gente gaste tiempo y dinero en un restaurante que trata así a sus clientes. Encima de todo, la comida no fue nada especial.More

I went to make a reservation with my family with sports clothes on, when we were judged by the lady in charged, who didn’t even bother to listen to us, making up that there weren’t free tables and sending a waiter to kick us out...(even though we heard people asking for tables that were given one). We were just making the reservation for that night’s dinner and we were discriminated by our look. Well, a Michelin star is not worth our money if the people in charged behave like that.More
