Another good local restaurant - food was excellent (maybe a little salty) - you may have to book it is that popular. We met a couple who had been coming to olhos for years and ate here every night - can you get a better recommendation?

Very good service and food, went 3 times on 10 night holiday. It is always a good sign when local people are regulars.

Nice home cooked food. Family run with friendly staff. We tried a couple of times to get a table outside but they were always full. Would go again.

Not so good. Horrible garlic bread, soaking in oil. The cataplana was OK, however the side dish with fries were not good at all. Not sure why it is always fully booked.

Had a lovely meal here - I had salmon with a prawn sauce which were gorgeous and my hubby had the steak - which was melt in the mouth. Only gripe is with the location, as we got the full benefit of the diesel fumes from a lorry going to the nearby supermarket. To be fair, we could have eaten... More

One of the nearest restaurants to our apartment, my husband was very taken with their grilled squid in butter sauce, and said it was one of the best dishes he'd ever eaten. We went a few times, service was very good first time, a little hit and miss the other times, but they did apologise when they forgot something, and... More

This is by far my favourite place to eat in Olhos. Food is unbelievably nice and staff are great. Portions are very generous. I cannot recommend this place enough but beware if you don't book and arrive after 8pm in the summer month you are more than likely going to have to wait for a table
