We called in without a reservation and were offered a nice table. Service was good, nice and friendly without being intrusive. Our food was excellent, we shared the mussels for first. More than enough for two. For seconds my wife had steak, i had the fish pie. Very happy with the quality and the style of cooking. Highly recommend a visit here.

On the side street, on peaceful place. Very nice Decoration, and the food was awesome. One of the friedliest service on europe! Must go when back on Monte Gordo!

Vicius (translation: addiction) is a gem in a sea of similar restaurants. As a patron one has to remember which country they are in as it is truly unique, maybe hinting of a rural French restaurant. It is obvious that a lot of attention has been paid to décor detailing, and the log fire certainly adds to its cozy and romantic ambiance. We had the prime rib of beef platter that was certainly sufficient for two. The beef had a mild smoky flavour and personally I would have preferred it to be just a little thicker. Also side dishes were humdrum with the habitual fried potatoes (French fries) and a small unimaginative salad. I understand that “batates frites” is typically Portuguese, but such a unique restaurant would benefit to have something like potato croquettes and maybe some of those beautiful green beans found in this country. For dessert it was the caramel baba that was light and provided a nice finish. Service was friendly and attentive. Our total cost with 1 glass each of house wine was 22.25 euros. Reservations recommended.

I know most everyone thinks this is a great place -- but for me and wife and sister in law, --- It Sucks --- Food was not good, People were rude and unfriendly, prices were WAY WAY over the top -- I do not really understand how the place has managed to stay open !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Two times in 2 different years we have been there, second time because we wanted to see if perhaps we were wrong in our perception -- but guess what --- NAH --- still the same -- so my very big 5 thumbs or 10 down if I can for this place !!!!! The local pizza joint is better!!!

Quite simply the most beautiful steak we have ever tasted. This quaint little restaurant is tucked away in the side streets of Monte Gordo but is most definitely worth seeking out.

We very much look forward to visiting again on our regular trips to Monte Gordo.
