“Great local restaurant”
Reviewed 27 August 2014

This great little place was a few minutes walk from our hotel (Solplay Apartments). From the outside, it is not much to look at, but inside has a great amount of character. From the pictures of the regulars on the walls to the impressive selection of worldwide whisky, the restaurant is warm and inviting.

The hosts are utterly obliging, even helping us out when we needed something small but the shops were closed! The food is delicious, if a little pricey compared to the other restaurants in the area. The meringue and wild berry dessert deserves a special mention.

Given the wonderful interior and excellent service, overall we had a fantastic time and would be happy to come back again.

Cute little local restaurant tucked away in a quiet area near our hotel. Wonderful service, quirky interior and good honest Portuguese food. Enjoyed our evening there.

“Great Food, Great Atmosphere, Great People”
Reviewed 2 September 2013

I am a frequent client of Restaurante Jacó, in Linda-a-Velha. The atmosphere is cozy and very pleasant, the owners, Carla and César, are unexceedingly nice and always make you feel at home, the food is just GREAT! Carla and César are very creative as far as meals are concerned and they always serve you the best food, made with the best ingredients which are carefully selected and to which they add a spark of creativity, They also offer a wide choice of wines, among which Portuguese, French and Italian.
I have taken to Restaurante Jacó friends form abroad (from France to Australia) and they have all loved it. They always ask to return when they visit Portugal.
Its quite atmosphere and even the decoration and the space make it adequate, be it for couples, or family groups, groups of friends and business meals (there is even a reserved and more private area created bearing this in mind).
We have had several of our birthday and wedding anniversaries celebrations held at Jacó.
In short, this is a place I strongly recommend and I am sure no one will regret having been to Jacó!
