Visited here this evening as our first choice restaurant was fully booked. The decor is very pretty and outside tables looked good too although it was a little too cold to eat outside. It's a shame that they try to create a lovely atmosphere with candles everywhere (including the toilets) but the is a huge strip light down the centre... More

This is the third or fourth time I have been here in the past three years. Under new management each time. The first time was the best value and quality. Last year was not as good but this year a little better. Will try again next year.

We spent 10 days in Cabanas and ate out every night -this was by far the best. I would say food cooked by a chef rather than a cook . Yes it is a little slow but everything we had was worth the wait and beautifully presented . I had the Cod with Mash potato served in a tile and... More

Myself and my family had some lovely food tonight in the beautiful setting of this restaurant. Such a shame that myself and my husband's mains and deserts both arrived 25 minutes later than those of our children. We like to eat together as a family but tonight essentially had 2 separate meals. The restaurant wasn't even busy, only 1 other... More

We ate here three times. The first visit was with 4 families, and we had book the table for 7;30. Food was excellent and service was ok, so we returned. 2nd night was just two of us. Service was slow, orders were forgotten, meal mixed up, and bill was wrong. The 3rd visit was with the group again, and it... More

We decided to visit here on the back of other reviews and were blown away by the service , food quality and price - if you visit one place while in Cabanas you simply must go to this little gem hidden inside a holiday apartment complex. The prettiest restaurant I have ever been in too - top quality and absolutely... More

The restaurant is not in the seaside front line, so one will find a more quiet atmosphere. Along with it, the menu also differs from the regular menus from the majority of the restaurants in town. The dishes have a nice presentation either it is the "Bacalhau on the roof tile" or the pork loin. The restaurant also has a... More

Our server was very friendly, please be sure to ask him for his recommendations on the menu. I had pork with gratin potatoes.... Absolutely delicious.my partner had duck which... More

We stumbled across this restaurant by chance, it's hidden away amongst some sort of holiday apartments. Don't be put off and enter a world of great food and service. We ate at several restaurants during our 2 week stay and all were good but this place had that extra quality, especially in the food. We chose to eat inside on... More

Visited O Monte for the first time back in April and had two wonderful meals there. Returned again June/July with friends and the food, service and attention to detail was once again excellent. Speaking to Locals, Ex-Pats and reading old reviews this restaurant has had a roller coaster reputation - I can honestly say those days are over. Cyril &... More
