History

Where locals eat,
since 1905.

The origins of “Solar Moinho de Vento” date back to 1905 when Maria da Rosa Silva Pinto founded a Tavern in this 16th century building, where she lived. In 1950, after her death, the same family transformed the tavern into "Solar Costa" now as a restaurant. According to some reports and writings of the time, it was under the name "Solar Costa" that the Fado "diva" Amália Rodrigues once performed here.
 
In 1955, with the departure of the Costa family, the name was changed to “Solar Moinho de Vento” because of it's location , the "Moinho de Vento" street and square.
 
In 2002, Pedro Bessa Monteiro, a frequent customer of the restaurant with his father, acquired with his help  "Solar Moinho de Vento", carrying out more in-depth remodeling works, this being the current Management.

In 2019, the Kitchen and the R / C remodel takes place and an innovative environmental awareness for a Traditional Portuguese Cuisine Restaurant.
 
2020 sees the arrival of the white house wine “Solar Moinho de Vento - Alvarinho Loureiro”, a partnership with the “Master” of the Alvarinho Grape and Vinhos Verdes region,
