We heard about TripAdvisor from a costumer who asked us why we don't answer back and don't even say thanks! Really, we never heard about it! 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!

This is a fantastic restaurant, we dined here twice on our 7 day holiday in Olhos De Agua, that's how nice this restaurant was. Highly recommend the steaks (On a Board & with Mushroom Sauce). Perfect for families and for a quick bite to eat before going out.

We dined here as we couldn't find the place we were looking for, not expecting much we went in. The staff were friendly, the food was great. What more dyou want? The starter they put out with the olives I filled up on as they're perfection(carrots). Really- try them.

I often find myself feeling like the woman in car advert around some years ago, in that she always has one little complaint about everything until she gets into the VW car and then she is silent until the car journey is over and then she starts complaining again. How is this relevant to the review, I hear you ask,... More

Pretty good menu with a mix of tourist meals and traditional Portuguese fair such as various forms of Cataplana. It's good value for money food with the bonus being that the service excels. You are always looked after and as we know, poor service can ruin an evening regardless of the quality of the meal. A good restaurant to start... More

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.

Just got back from Restaurante Calheiros...thanks to the reviewer who directed me here rather than O Manuel. 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
