Lagar da Ribeira
Once an olive mill powered by the Muxagata river, this iconic granite building will get a new lease of life as a restaurant. With ten acres of riverside land dedicated to food production, you will be sure of the freshness of the fully organic produce that will arrive on your plate. The menu will be international, on a bed of traditional Portuguese gastronomy, with amazing salads, many vegetarian options, snacks made from our own organic blue corn, such as tortillas and enchiladas, fresh fish, homemade ice cream, pastries, and much more, on a foundation of good old fashioned Beira Alta hospitality.
This reconstruction presented considerable challenges. As it lies on the banks of the river, the foundation had to be secured and reinforced with giant granite footings. Special care was taken to respect the original design of the building, which  will be completed by October 2021. Gratitude for dedication and skills to the whole team of engineers and craftspersons who are performing magic by the riverside on a daily basis.
