We were just walking around looking for places for a group of 8 people and they didn’t accept us anywhere on a Saturday night without a reservation. So we took our chance at Dom Henrique restaurant. But thanks to the large space there, 2 floors, a terraces on the ground and on the second floors, as well as a large indoor room and also a cocktail bar, they were able to accommodate and feed us comfortably.
The restaurant was named after a famous Portuguese patron, manager of geographical discoveries and voyages, Infante Don Enrique.
See in Dom Henrique …
… Large spaces, enough space between tables;
… The interior did not shine with any very original design, but it was pleasant..
Feel in Dom Henrique …
… Good service, however the waiters did not go into details to recommend and explain the menu.
Hear in Dom Henrique …
… I didn’t realize if there was music because the rooms were reverberating with chatter and laughter, and it’s quite noisy.
Movie watching time: 1:09 min.
Smell in Dom Henrique …
… The appetizing aroma of mussels Bulhão style- melted butter and garlic, combined with cilantro.
Bulhão style means they were cooked with butter, garlic, cilantro and lemon.
… These mussels went very well with a white wine with a main local variety Arinto- Marques de Borba from the Alentejo region.
Taste in Dom Henrique …
… Crispy goat cheese – it is stewed in a multi-leaf crust with spinach and spices, it is very tasty;
… Portuguese-style beef- has a sauce, served on top with jamon, fried potatoes. Not bad, it wasn’t my thing because of the sauce;
… Mussels with Bulhão Pato Style – they were delicious, but at Don Sebstiao they were much nicer. Read about them in Don Sebastiao- white table cloths in the old town of Lagos, Algarve, Portugal;
… Sole fish fillet with vegetables;
… There were some wine specials, including by the glass, that turned out to be pretty lackluster. It is definitely better to order wine by the glass from the wine list, not from the specials. The first wine was a mistake and I didn’t drink it at all – it left no aftertaste and no memory.
… Don’t miss to order bread and dips. They offer 2 types of very fresh and soft bread, very pleasant.
I liked the Dom Henrique restaurant, but I wouldn’t go there again, simply because I would look for more interesting options.
