This Guy has been operating here for many years and on arrival greets you as a long lost friend. I am sure he does not remember our few annual visits. Love the simplicity if the prawn starters. Like a 1970s Dublin Bay Prawn cocktail. The sole is mouth watering and a good portion size , not over cooked or seasoned... More

One of my real favourites in Algarve's Golden Triangle. Setting and ambience is great and food matches that... staff knowledgeable and really helpful. Look forward to another visit in June. A real 5 ⭐️

An amazing setting for a very special night in the Algarve. Food and wines were excellent and nothing was to much trouble. Well done Lucy and Wanda and her team. Think we definitely won the noisiest table award and of course the "last to leave" award!

On a friends recommendation we visited this quaint old school restaurant. The courtyard must be stunning to dine in the summer, November evening didn't lend itself to that. Service, wine and more importantly the food where outstanding . Not overly priced. A genuine delight and highly recommended. Will visit again when I return. I shared the chateubrian . Delicious

One of our favourite restaurants. Food is excellent, the service superb and the setting on a warm evening is magic. Right from the reservation process, email confirmations to the warm greeting on arrival to the friendly service at the table this restaurant scores 10/10 at every level. The price range is at the upper end of the price scale but... More

We were delayed by an unexpected but important telefoon call. We didn't want to hurry because we expected good food, atmosphere and wine. So shortly before 22 hours we were eating our main dish, in an empty, and not spacious, dining room while all waiters were very busy clearing tables and resetting them for the next day. Luckily, our waiter... More
