A select band of Liverpudlians assembled here for dinner back in Sept courtesy of Mr & Mrs Lawson and what a night it turned out to be! Wonderful atmosphere, traditional honest food, steaks to die for off hot platters, very quaffable vino, excellent staff (including owner and head chef Mamae) all in all a great night to remember

There aren't many places that my whole family like to go to, but O Tiago is a firm favourite with both kids & both adults in our family of four! Great menu, attentive service and reasonable prices. What's not to like! And the sizzling platters are to die for!!!

We visited Tiago's in the summer on our first holiday to the Algarve. The owner looked after the villa we we're staying at so on meeting him we promised to go to his restaurant. (He wasn't giving us the hard sell here!). The food is honest Portuguese food in large portions and was absolutely delicious. I had the monkfish which... More

Have eaten here 3 times on this holiday and the food and welcome has been excellent as always. Enjoyed the delicious unpeeled prawns and the monkfish dishes on these visits. Also had a fabulous set meal here on a music evening with singers Adam & Wendy which they are runnIng occasionally during the winter. Looking forward to visiting again next... More

O Tiago was an early encounter during our first trip to Portugal and I am sorry to say that it was disappointing. We were the first to arrive but the Restaurant soon filled up with predominately English clientele (this is often a concern for me) I started with Mushrooms in a Cream sauce, this was okay, however at eight Euros...

We have been visiting O Tiago for 8years and the food cooked is superbly Portuguese. It's located in a quiet road in Budens and it's easy to miss. With Stella (mum) cooking in the kitchen and Tiago and his able assistant Wison will look after you offering excellent service. This restaurant is also very reasonably price. Not one to miss...

Visited here as a party of 17, pre booked and a special table d'hôte menu chosen by our host. The food, service and attention we got was excellent and we were not the only ones in the restaurant. There was a choice of starter, main and dessert courses with really good coffee and excellent port to round everything off! At... More

We decided to eat here rather than nearer where we are staying in Luz and are so pleased we did. The restaurant is about a 15 min drive from Luz and as it is quite small well worth booking ahead. We had a couple of their signature dishes: prawns in cream & brandy and steak on a stone - excellent!... More
