We searched the internet and found this, no need to say that we're all very happy!!! We wanted to thank you all, we appreciate your reviewes very much and we're so glad from what you told about us! Calheiro's is a family restaurant and one of our concernes is to make you feel good while in vacations in the company of your family or friends! We made some real friends there, clients that passes more than clients to friendship and that's the most amazing part of the job! We like you to know that we saw your constructive critics and we'll try our best to improve our restaurant! Restaurant Calheiros is a family restaurant, with local food and the best wishes to gave a good meal in a good atmosphere!

Restaurants Calheiros was closed for painting and renovations. Our party of 4 had dinner there last night and we are very happy that the have reopened. It was outstanding. Our meals (all different items) were well prepared and tasty. The service was attentive and professional with just a little good homour which is sometimes rare in the Algarve. The premises... More

Had two meals her in the last week and both of them was well cooked and served with a smile a some friendly banter. I know its not the cheapest place to eat but it is worth the little extra for the wonderful food and service.

We HAVE been to O Manuel, but they lack organization in terms of .... no hours posted anywhere, no website that I could find .... and no response to queries... So...it was off to Calheiros ... and we are glad we went there.... More

Despite having used trip advisor for years, I made my first review last night. I felt the need to do this because I found a restaurant that was exceptional, a small new Indian restaurant in Olhos D'Agua near the post office that is certainly worth a visit. Anyway, I awoke to find that I was being invited to review other... More

Family run restaurant that gives you value for money but more importantly excellent service. We have been visiting this restaurant for many years as we stay in Alhos April and October, please note it has obviously becoming very popular and if you are more than four diners suggest you book even in October!

We read TripAdvisor Reviews of a number of restaurants and tried one of the higher rated restaurants on the main tourist street... More

Absolutely loved it! Went there practically every day during my break away. Reccommended by family and friends who have been there previously, so we had to give it a go, and by George it was worth it! I had the lamb chops, mixed kebab, lamb stew and paella, all amazingly prepared! The staff are so friendly. Highly reccommended!
