Well that must have been the worst tosted sandwich i have ever been served. Full of grease. Digusting. The owners were having a very loud and obvious argument. The waitress was friendly enough but was on the sell constsntly. If you have no taste go there otherwise do not bother.

Visited back in July, a big group of us. We had a great laugh, made to feel welcome and watched the World Cup matches. Staff friendly and food and drink good too, coming back for another visit in October!

We went for breakfast on our first morning in villa moura . We had 2 bacon and egg sandwiches served on extra thick sliced bread, no doubt to make it look a good deal. Just awful. The staff were surly especially the man behind the bar, when we asked for a knife to cut the sandwiches In Half. No prices... More

Nothing special really, bulk standard " Irish" theme bar. No Irish staff when we were there seemed to be English run. Food was mix of English/Irish daily special seemed to be the same every time we passed, the food was average when we ate there which was to watch the world cup football.

The service was not pleasant as the staff were surely and sad and the owner did not appear to give a dam. We had three beers which cost 18 Euros, three times what appeared... More

We ate here one night. The food, it must be said, was pretty good, but the service was terrible - if the guy running the place doesn't want people in there, he should just lock the door rather than providing begrudging service. As another reviewer said - go next door to Caddyshack - the food is just as good, similarly... More
