Came when it was Hansel & Gretal and can confirm the food now is just as good. Had lunch then a walk and back for pancakes. Lovely.
Tip for getting there if coming from Lagos, head to Bensafrim first. Drive through the village and you’ll come across a sign to turn left for the reservoir Barragem da bravura. If you follow that road you’ll find the cafe easily. There are other roads but this is by far the easiest and fastest way.

Haensel & Gretel has a new owner and is called now HELLO - GOODBYE.
Iive just 5 mls away and go there after fishing at the lake for a drink or to eat.
The dam is perfect in summer to go for a swim without hundreds of people aside you
and has very nice and warm water...not as cold as the freezing atlantic ocean!
Also very nice just to go for a walk or have a picnic.
The restaurant is serving very good food,the service is best ! around Lagos you will not find a better one.They have many nice snacks as well as complete full course food,all prepared nice and fresh and also some kind of tasty asian kitchen.The prices are a vit above the normal portuguese level,but still on a normal level.If you see what you get its still fair.But remember they close quite early,17.00

Now renamed HelloGoodbye. Open only for lunch but very very good food. We had Sate and then went back the following weekend for Nasi Goreng. Lovely location with walks around the reservoir.

We previously visited when hanzel and gretal, two years ago. Checked online before visit this year June 2014, to see if still open. Saw previous remarks re bad service etc, but decided to call in to see for ourselves. Waitress lovely, very polite and accommodating. Had meal and drink, all very good, young Portuguese waitress couldn't do enough to ensure we were ok and had everything we wanted. Prices ok, see previous review, you would pay more than double in uk for such good quality coffee. Restaurant spotless, same with toilets. No complaints at all, lovely meal, lovely area, smiley staff. Very sad to see that people were driving up, parking and obviously looking on trip advisor in the car and driving away due to one unfair review. Come on, go in and give them a chance, you won't be disappointed.
