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.

This is just amazing food in a very nice setting. The tasting menu is down to earth and at the same time out of this world. Plus the wines are excellent.

What a beautiful spot to come have a leisurely meal. It’s a bit out of the way but well worth it- it’s like eating on an elegant farm and the food and wines are very interesting. It is very kid friendly and the service is...excellent. Also a winery, you can come taste some wine or olive oil. What a lovely experience!!More

Second time in this restaurant, and it never disappoints. In terms of value for money, you cannot get much better than Herdade do Esporão.

My family is half Portuguese half American. We’ve been going to Esporao for the last 15 years. Something the whole family always looks forward to. This year we had to go through a long and complicated email reservation process, which I understand as a need...for when you become a sought out quality restaurant. We were running late and got lost in the property so we arrived 19 min late. The tolerance time was 15 min so we passed it by 4 min and were refused a table. There was no attempt at trying to have as stay and enjoy the other restaurant, for example. They simply turned us away. Disappointing and Unacceptable. I can only assume they grew so fast that they forgot how to treat their costumers.More

The wine tour was fascinating but the lunch, Oh my word!! I've eaten at Michelin starred restaurants before but this was beyond anything I've eaten. The attention to detail, accommodating my dietary allergies, nothing was too much trouble. We met the chef, what a talent!!

This is well worth a visit for a superlative food and wine experience. Chef Carlos Teixeira cut his teeth at Nolla in Finland, Blue Hill New York and Clove Hill in London. His experience and creativity show in the culinary creations he presents. The wine...pairings are fabulous too. The ambiance is pure bliss with views across rolling fields and water.More

A score of zero isn’t possible, so it had to be a one, alas. Our five course meal today reminded me very much of a restaurant version of the story in which the emperor has no clothes. In the course of the tedious three hour...meal, there were a few interesting notes of taste, but nothing to exceed the routine quality of a meal at home. The unifying thread of the experience was an odd taste, in nearly every dish, which my companion suggested might have its origin in some particular culture of mold or bacteria from the refrigerator. The wines were nothing particular, so the minuscule aliquots poured were perhaps a mercy, and when I asked for a little more wine, I received the dregs of the last 15 mL or so from a nearly empty bottle. That was a new experience. The cheque amounted to €202, which would have been a fair price only if I had been able to torture my worst enemy by bringing them to share that lunch. Altogether a disappointment, which left me wondering what the meaning of that Michelin star could be.More

Unprofessional reservation system. Have sent emails several times to make reservation 2/3 weeks in advance and never get a reply. I always end up calling to chase for an answer which is ‘we cannot accomodate’.More

We really enjoy Esporao wine so we thought it would make sense to try their Michelin star restaurant! We actually started in the tasting room for a few glasses of wine, then had a late lunch reservation at the restaurant. We decided to choose our...own adventure and asked the waiter to pair wines with each course. The first course was beautiful -- it was layered with colorful edible flowers and herbs. We ordered the green beans and the cauliflower next. The green beans were hands down the best thing I ate. The cauliflower was good but it was a bit too salty. For the mains we had perch and a grilled pork. Both were delicious and very interesting sauces and flavors. Heavy use of coriander. The dessert was strawberry and it was good but also a bit too sweet for me personally. With that said, we really enjoyed the lunch, the wine, and the service. I would recommend making a reservation at the restaurant if you plan to visit the vineyard. As an aside, we went back to the tasting room for an olive oil tasting and it was fantastic. We left with three bottles of olive oil.............. :)More

We came here because we love Esporão wines and really wanted to do the guided tour of the winery and cellars, and found out that they had recently got the Michelin star with their restaurant. I won’t dwell on how much it is worth visiting...the winery as the tour is incredibly well done and organized, so please book yours! The restaurant is facing the Herdade do Esporão land and it is just beautiful. The staff is professional yet friendly and they make you feel very comfortable even if you are in a starred restaurant, making your journey even more enjoyable. Let you be guided by the chef’s menu which will make you discover Portuguese cuisine taste with an innovative twist. We loved our time there and really appreciated the chef coming to our table asking for our thoughts. Look forward to coming back!More

Magnificent food experience! We had the 3 dishes and wine experience in which the chef will surprise us with appetizers, fish and meat dishes, and desert. All dishes are accompanied by a selection of wines from Esporão that combined divinely with the dishes served. Not...cheap, but definitely worth the money.More
