I have just returned from a 2 week stay in O de A and found this to be by far the best restaurant. We went 4 or 5 times! It has a fairly typical menu but the dishes are really well cooked and really tasty. Others seem to agree as there were always queues to get in. Would recommend booking... read more

Great food, great prices and very attentive staff who made us feel very welcome. Would recommend a visit. Only a 5 min walk from the top of the main street that leads down to the beach. Near the supermarket.

Having seen how busy the restaurant was for a few days we thought let's give it a go, how disappointed I was with the food and canapé style starters. Why it's so busy I'll never know. As a chef I thought the standard was dreadful and tasteless. The Piri Piri chicken was bland and the salmon dish a car crash... More

From the moment we walked in we received friendly and attentive service. The garlic bread was gorgeous as was the Cod cooked on a roof tile (yes, that is correct) and the piri piri chicken. The restaurant was busy and there were people waiting for tables but at no time were we made to feel rushed. This has been our... More

Our family group of 5 adults and 2 children ate here during our recent stay in Olhos de Agua. It is a traditional Portugese restaurant situated along a street away from the sea front. The staff were extremely attentive and the food was of a good quality. We ordered an assorted selection of dishes between us and everyone was very... More

Great service, amazing fish dishes. Reasonably priced. Best meal so far in the Algarve. Wonderful garlic bread and the house white wine for 7.90€ is better than most expensive wines offered in London. Try the mixed fish and the meat kebabs my kids had looked great too. A must try place when you're down here.

The menu here majors on fish. We passed this restaurant a lot as it’s near the supermarket. It was always busy, so best get there bit early rather than later in the evening. We sat inside as it was a warm night. We had Tuna Algarve (really nice), piri piri chicken breast (if it doesn’t say breast on any menu... More
