Waiters not up to standard. Wait more than an hour for our food - but they forgot to prepare one of guests food. Was not busy at all, but you have to wait about 20 minutes just to receive your cold drinks that you have...ordered. Lovely place to sit outside.More

Simple and delicious. We enjoyed our first dinner here so much that we came back on our second evening. The chicken was tender and full of flavor. Would detour just to come back to eat here again.

Lets get to the facts.... If your looking for quick food that was probably made last night and is fresh out of the microwave... this is not the place. If your looking for 5 star decor and the all the glamour of a meal at...the ritz... this is probably not the place either. But if your looking for a meal of amazing quality, proper Portuguese cooking and a very rustic decor with light music in the background.... this is the place. It is great, the food is fresh cooked... so it takes time, but its worth the wait, and the selection of Portuguese wines is just awesome. My parents go here often, and I do everytime I visit them... and I cant wait to be back.More

Very typical Portuguese restaurant - not much ambiance but food tasty and what we expected from this family restaurant.

Decided to try this little tucked away restaurant as the desire to go for Portuguese food was strong. All meals were good and well cooked and tasty, Steaks were very good quality and well cooked to order. Prawns delicious and the starter escargot excellent. Decor...is a bit dated but fitted the rustic atmosphere. Overall a very good meal with good service.More

The small restaurant is hidden away near the centre of town. This is the place to have great Portuguese food, a cold 2M beer and to relax with family or friends.

Had traditional trinchado, well in my opinion it was a flour sauce made badly, no bay leaves, chili or garlic! Waiter had no idea. Had about 150g meat, not sure it was steak and 150g fat. Chips and salad was average! Atmosphere, well, what is...that?More

A bit average but relaxing in the garden is good, not very exquisite but nice all rounder! Food is nice but the service could be better! Love the fires at winter time in the garden, something different.

A family run Portuguese restuarant where everything is prepared fresh. This is not a quick meal. A Nova Vista is a dining experience. Brilliant service. Brilliant ambieance. Brilliant food

We were recommended to dine here by the b&b we were staying at and although the atmosphere was nice and we ate outside with it being a lovely evening the food wasn't quite up to our expectations. The chips were good but the pan fried...fish I had was a bit hard in places and lacked a little flavour.More
