We went with friends and enjoyed a very good fixed price menu. Wine included as well. Waitress was very attentive and we would definitely go again.

Not the best location. We eat on the small terrace, but the inside is more attractive. The food was basic, but really tasty, and the service was good.

We have visited this restaurant a few times and it is getting worse. I assume the two youngsters that serve at table are the children of the owners because they used to have a maitre d who was very welcoming. The food is very average and very Portuguese but the scowls from these kids serving you make it clear they... More

My family and I really enjoyed eating here, the waiter and waitress were very good and the food was excellent. Home cooked and tasty. If your looking for something different to the usual steak on a stone restaurant try here. The only downside was the cost, most expensive we've had in the Algarve for Years.

Ok, it's quite off the beaten track in Paderne and you go there just for the restaurant...I've been visiting this place for some 10 years and it continues to be a wonderful dining experience, with a good offer of Algarve countryside cuisine, delicious and varied. Service is a bit informal, with two youngsters who do their best to please. They... More

I have been several times to this place. It is fairly consistent but has the odd blip. Sometimes the food is michelin standard other times not. The service is good but the waiter could be more cheery. If they changed the menu i would go more often as i like the atmosphere both inside and particularly outside in the summer.... More

Moiras Encantadas is located in a cellar underneath a cafe in Paderne. It is clean and well decorated with some paintings of the owners wife. The owner does all the cooking himself and he deserves a medal, his wife serves the meals, it was the best meal we had while around the region of Paderne. We shared a mixed starter... More

Weve been to Moira 3 times over a 10 year period and always been dissappointed. It never lives up to our expectations. Its such a pretty restaurant, but the food is never great.

Summer period, turists, XXI century and you cant pay by credit card. Guess why? Because there is an ATM machine outside in the street just around the corner. So lets destroy the confort of the costumers and make them go there withdraw money to avoid bank fees and IRS. Cash based economy, great! The food is good but the service... More
