History

Where locals eat,
since 1905.

The origins of the “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, the same family transformed the tavern into "Solar Costa" 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" 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 house wine “Solar Moinho de Vento” arrive, a partnership with the “Master” of the Alvarinho Grape and Vinhos Verdes region,
Anselmo Mendes.
